If you have a large repetitive task at hand, or you find yourself doing the same type of editing over and over again, Photoshop Actions can be an amazing time saver. You can string together a series of tasks, like tool actions, menu commands and other editing features and record and save them as an action.

Photoshop comes with some actions already installed, or you can create your own actions to change the size of an image, apply filters and effects and then save your files in a specific format. Currently SleekLens.com offers a free Photoshop action bundle for portraits.
