Many people think of Actions as being used for special effects, when the reality is that most of the work you’re doing is finish work. See how to use my various Actions to quickly finish an image. To add a final touch I also add an edge, and then use an action to size for printing. I also demonstrate how to size an image for use as a canvas gallery wrap using an edge.
The trick to being fast is having pre-made assets ready to go, like my sets of Actions and Edges shown here. These need to also be high quality so that your work can be different and custom each time, with the parts all working together well. The result is a high quality piece created quickly.
