Create another action, let’s say we want to make a simulated sepia tone. Yes, we don’t want to go into our image adjust your saturation and click on the colorized box. We want to automate it all.
So let’s create a new actions. We will go to our new actions options new action and let’s call this Sepia. We’re going to save in the same set new action and let us assign a function key. Let’s just see what I have here. Let’s go control F8 as you can see the control button is chosen there in F8, so go record. Now since I have record you can see here it’s recording everything I'm doing. So let’s go to image adjustments. We’re still in gray scale mood, so we’re going to have to get out the gray scale mood. So we’re just going to go to RGB.
Now did you see? It’s got my convert mode RJB, and that’s not a bad thing. So I actually going to keep that in here. Just in case my —you know if I'm doing just another image in here these black and out and why I actually do that? Because if the image is already in RJB. It’s alright it’s not going to change. So let’s just go to image adjustments, hue saturation, I'm going to click on the color of box and let’s just pick something here just to give it that sort of a Sepia kind of look. Let’s just see like that sure and then I'm going to hit stop. There now my action is created for Sepia.
So let’s just test that out. Let's open up an image here. Sure. Let’s try this one here. And I'm just going to run the Sepia action or actually let’s press CTRL+F8. And it runs the action and there we have it. It’s done no matter what I do now no matter what image I used if I play that action or hit CTRL F8 it is going to convert that to my Sepia.
And now that’s all you can do, so when you go to a complex you know. If you have to add saturation to each image and you have a whole bunch of image that you’re going to add saturation, or even making actions to rotate 90 degrees. I’ve got an action that rotates my image 90 degrees. So when it pops up by just hit an action and it’s done. Instead of me going into image rotate canvas you know 90 degrees.
So creating actions will save you a lot of time and that’s how you do it just keep playing, there you go.
