Photoshop is a one-stop solution for those web and graphic designers who are looking for a photo and image editing tool. Though Photoshop is an excellent tool which allows creating beautiful graphics from scratch or improving photos unrecognizably, sometimes the process takes too much time and efforts.

A lot of designers would give an arm for a magic wand that would help them simplify some actions an achieve the results in one or two clicks instead of 5-6. Good news is that there are a lot of such magic wands and they are called Photoshop Actions.

  • Color enhancements;
  • Retouching effects;
  • Black and white effects;
  • Vintage effects;
