There’s no question about it, Photoshop is an amazing tool that lets us create wonderful images. But as photographers, it’s important to balance those creative possibilities with the reality of how much time it can require. My goal is to show you how to spend less time in Photoshop, and how to use Photoshop to create art that sells.
Automation is one way to work faster in Photoshop, but when most people hear the word “automation” they tend to assume actions. Although actions are a big part of automation (we’ll talk about actions later), Photoshop has plenty of other ways to speed up your work, including built-in automations that require no preparation on your part.
