Instructor. Using Photoshop Actions as Droplets in Lightroom. Photoshop has a feature called Actions. Actions are simply sets of instructions, also known as scripts or macros, that can be applied to an image or set of images. This post isn’t intended to describe all the things you can do with actions, or even how to create them, but rather to teach you how to make an action that you already have in Photoshop available to Lightroom.

You can certainly select an image in Lightroom, choose Edit in Photoshop, then manually run the action once the image opens in Photoshop, but the whole point of Lightroom is to make your post-processing life easier and more efficient. Creating a Droplet As I mentioned before, actions aren’t directly readable by Lightroom. To create a droplet: The Actions Panel Choose Actions from the Window Menu Click Choose Choose the Action Set.
