NEW VIDEO: Creating time saving actions and buttons in Photoshop

It is another week and time to roll out another video. With this seemingly never ending shelter-in-place happening, I seem to have a lot more time than I ever have in the past. But even with that free time, it is still great to find simple and efficient ways to help save time in the photographic workflow.

Today's video is all about creating actions in Adobe Photoshop AND turning them into buttons, making them even faster and easier.

I have created my own actions in Photoshop for a really long time, but I remember the moment I learned about "button mode". I was on a press bus at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver back in 2008 and I saw another photographer invoking his actions with buttons and I just had to interrupt him to find out how he did that. He was kind enough to show me the simple way to make this change in Photoshop and I have never looked back since.

To watch the video, just click on the image above.

I hope that you find this trick as useful as I have!

I would love to know what you think of this tip. Have you been using buttons yourself? Did you just learn this and think "That's super cool!! Why didn't I know this before?"  Leave a comment here and let me know.
