Hello viewers! I am Rakib. In this video, I will show you how to create an action in Photoshop and perform batch edit. Basically, action is the combination of some commands or effects. That means if you make a lot of adjustments and apply some effects in an image and wish to save all these for many other images then you can save all these changes as an action and use it later. As action is allowing you to do the changes manually at once and then applying the exact same thing to a large number of other images so it will save much of your time. So let’s see how we can create an action. First, we will come to this Actions panel. If you can’t find it here then you can go to: Window and select Actions from here and it will appear. You will only see this Default Actions set here. It also contains some actions. But we will create our own. First, we have to create a set by clicking here. You can rename it. I will keep it as Set 1. A set is the container of the actions. Now we will create our action. We will click this ‘Create new action’ button from here and we will get this box. You should name it according to what it will do. The set will be the one in which we are creating the action. So in this case it is Set 1. If there were several sets then you could choose the one in which you want to create this new action. Function Key works as a keyboard shortcut. You have to come to this Actions panel and select the action and then press the play button to initiate it or alternatively you can use this Function key to initiate it immediately. And if you have assigned this function key for an action earlier then you can add Ctrl or Shift or both with it. And you can select a color for this action. May be it will help you to sort this particular action. I will select none and uncheck Shift and Ctrl. Will click record. So now it will record what changes or commands we will apply. Let’s add an adjustment layer. Hue/Saturation Let’s add another adjustment layer. So, we just made 2 adjustments or 2 changes. Now, you can see all these changes are recorded in this action. So now, we will stop recording. Our action is created. Now, we can use this action in any other images. When we will apply this action then these exact same effects or changes will be made into that image. So, here is another image. If we select this action and press the play button then you can see those same changes are being applied here with just one click. So that’s what actions do. You can save a lot of tasks in an action and apply them in a large number of images to save your time. Similarly if we pressed the Function key F2 then it would do the same thing. So in this way, if you insert hundreds of images and apply the action and then save manually then it would also take a lot of times. So, for batch image editing we can also automate these things and save times. Let’s see how we can do that. Here is our action. You can see 4 steps in it. If you want to remove any step then you can select that step and click this Trash icon to remove it. Similarly you can add steps in it. To do that we will select the last step from here and will click the record button again. Then we will go to: File/ Save as and will add an extra character to avoid replacing the original image………
