Hi, I was discussing brushing up work to show clients the results at shoots and was told that some photographers run a few actions. Curves, smoothing/sharpening etc. Do any of you? What are they?

Re: Actions

Hi, Gary, welcome to RTP

Actions are scripts that can be built in Photoshop to do a series of tasks automatically. You build the action using the "Actions Palette". You can also download actions created by others (assuming that you have a comparable version of PS that has the features used in an action), add them to your Presets/Actions folder then load them from the Action's Palette.

Google "Photoshop Actions". There are tons of freebies out there. Some work better than others, but give them a try. ALWAYS work on a backup copy of your original image.
