70+ Free Photo Retouching Photoshop Actions

There is a whole world of difference between being a lazy designer and being a smart and efficient one. Using and saving out sets of actions, layer styles, brushes, gradients, keyboard shortcuts, and everything else that you think you are going to use again in the future is a smart way to approach designing. In this post, we listed down over 70 free Photoshop actions for photo retouching, particularly for editing portraits, touch-ups and makeovers.

Photoshop actions are not as popular as Photoshop brushes, plugins and other features of Photoshop. Even I, myself, only found out about this special feature of Photoshop and actually started taking advantage of it when I upgraded to Photoshop CS2, when in fact, Photoshop actions have been there since Photoshop version 5, if I am not mistaken.

Photoshop users often overlook Photoshop actions because of the misconception that this feature is difficult to master. But if you take a closer look at Photoshop actions, you will realize that they are easy to use and can in fact help you save time and increase productivity by automating things for you. Examples of these tasks that can be automated using actions are applying a series of repetitive changes to a group of images, for example.

So are you in the mood for some actions? then download this photo retouching actions and use in Photoshop for free. Just to make sure, even if these photo retouching actions are free, I encourage you to read the terms of use in each download page.
