50+ Handpicked Free Photoshop Actions and Installation Guide Today I’m sharing a big collection of ready-made Adobe Photoshop Actions. If you don’t know what actions do in Adobe Photoshop, here’s its description. An action is a set of recorded commands that you may use on several images for a particular purpose. For example, you are getting a photo album ready for a website, and you have to sharpen, resize and add a few effects on every image. If there are over a thousand images… you’ll get old just completing one photo album. Actions come to save the day – you can record these three commands in an Action and apply all of them instantly without having to all the work again n’ again. This article has a tutorial in the start which will teach how to add these actions into your Adobe Photoshop. To be honest, I should say that I haven’t checked all of these actions myself; but they all seem to be working. This is also an untouched topic at Designzzz.

Todo sobre el formato RAW: Ventajas e Inconvenientes Llevábamos un rato tratanto únicamente temas relacionados con cámaras y aparatos, así que hoy, atendiendo la petición de muchos lectores VIP, se me ha ocurrido que podríamos hablar del formato RAW. Los que tengáis una cámara de fotos compacta estaréis más tranquilos, pues el RAW es un formato de fotos propio de las cámaras réflex digitales. Pero si tenéis una cámara réflex y actualmente sólo haceis fotos en JPG tal vez os interese echarle un vistazo al tema de hoy. En el artículo de hoy os intentaré explicar de manera muy simplificada: ¿Qué es el formato RAW? RAW quiere decir “crudo” en inglés. Cuando con la cámara disparamos la foto en formato JPG la cámara graba la imagen de manera definitiva en la tarjeta de memoria en un formato (JPG) interpretable por cualquier software de fotografía. Todos los profesionales de la fotografía disparan en modo RAW. ¿Por qué? Calidad de imagen: El fotmato RAW no comprime la foto como lo hace el JPG.
