Who doesn’t love taking nice Photographs? As they say, a picture paints a thousand words. Unfortunately, coming  up with awesome Photographs entails a lot of time and patience both on and off camera.

After spending time waiting for that perfect moment, comes the time-consuming task of Post Processing. Even Pro Photographers spend countless hours manipulating Photos to make them stand out.

The good news though,there are plenty of Photoshop Actions to choose from which can make Post Processing easier and faster.

Photoshop Actions enable you to record a sequential series of simple or complicated tasks which you can store in your computer and use it sometime later to achieve the same effect again and again with just a press of a button. You can either make your own actions or download them all over the web.

In this post, I want to show you a list of 100+  Cool and Free Photoshop Actions to Enhance your Photos.

Creating Photoshop Actions

For beginners, let me show first a brief explanation on how to create and install Photoshop actions. Recording an action in Photoshop is very simple. Just open up the Actions Pallete and hit the new action button as shown below. A new window should open containing various options for the action. You can then name the action and place in a set.  It also allows you to assign a keyboard shortcut to activate the action with just one keystroke every time you need it. After you hit Record, all you need is to do carry out the steps you’d like Photoshop to remember or record in the action. After you have finished doing all the steps, just hit the Stop button in the action Pop-up menu. To use the action on a different file, just load it from the actions menu and hit Play .

Installing Photoshop Actions

There are two ways to install Photoshop actions. First, you can drag the downloaded actions into the Actions folder within the Presets folder in your Photoshop Application folder. This method may require a restart on your Photoshop for the Actions to appear in the actions menu.

Another way, is to load the actions by hitting  the little arrow on the right of the Actions Menu.

There are loads of Free Photoshop Actions available for free. These are some of the best that we personally handpicked which would surely make your images look stunning in just a single click. Some of these even have hundreds of actions in one single download. Enjoy using them.
