While Adobe Photoshop puts thousands of tools, filters, and adjustments at your disposal, you probably use fewer than 50. And that’s all most need. In this post, we’ll show you how to get your common tasks done faster, through Photoshop’s built-in automation features.

Our Photoshop training courses are designed to help you learn a broad range of skills, and they are quite comprehensive. Our Photoshop CC 2014 training is over 13 hours on its own. While it’s great to push yourself to learn more and open up new avenues to creativity, sometimes you just need to get a very specific job done. Professionals who use Photoshop at work usually have a very specific set of responsibilities, and a workflow for taking care of them.

The good news is that repetitive tasks can be streamlined in Photoshop, by creating automated actions and using batch processing. The following videos are excerpts from Chapter 19 of our Photoshop CC tutorial by Andy Anderson, which you can order as a download or DVD-ROM, or begin watching instantly through our all-inclusive Learning Library.
