For anyone editing images, the best free Photoshop Actions are just a little short of magic. That's because they automate routine tasks, and allow you to add special effects at a stroke. So rather than editing your photos for hours, you can correct them or apply effects in a single click. Plus you can always go deeper and edit them further afterward.
