A Photoshop action is a recording of a sequence of commands and operations that you can save and access later on. For many amateurs like me (and even for designers), Photoshop actions can be extremely helpful for experimenting with different effects and for saving time during the photo editing process.

But with thousands of Photoshop actions available on the web, how can you find the most suitable ones for your photo editing needs? Well, here is my effort to help you with the list of useful Photoshop actions you can use for different purposes, from basic photo retouching to applying a striking effect in a couple of clicks.
