I wrote a small introduction about actions and scripts in Adobe Photoshop today. Every now and then I get asked about tipps for using Photoshop and automization is a popular demand.
Actions are quite well known and many books and tutorial cover this topic, but scripts are often ignored, even though they are a lot more powerful and flexible.
But for me, a smart combination of them are the best. With these two techniques you can easily automate repeating tasks and speed up your every day work. Especially photographers, who tend to deal with a huge amount of images, can really benefit from setting up their own structured workflow.
