I created these Photoshop CS4+ actions because I wanted to improve my workflow. I found myself repeating the same steps when I edited batches of photos. Using Photoshop actions can make your life easier and help you edit your photos more quickly. Basically, actions are nothing more than a series of normal Photoshop operations recorded so you can run them in sequence quickly, without having to remember just what steps to do, and in what order.
These actions are just right. They don't make your images looked too photoshopped. They are subtle and help you define the modern look you are aiming for.
