How to Speed Up Photoshop Actions Process?


Some of the actions might running pretty slow even when you have a high performance PC and its getting worst when you running a batch action on a folder full of images. Of course its really annoying to wait until its finish. To help speed up the process I want to share with you this secret tricks. But before that, lets figure out the reason why its running slowly. There are 3 factors that affect the speed of your actions.
  1. The image size is too big (high resolution).
  2. The process inside the actions is very long.
  3. Photoshop keeps creating history point for undo process.
To keep the actions running at full speed, there are two things that you can do.

First : In the History palette's menu, under History Options, turn off the checkbox for "Automatically Create First Snapshot".

Second : Go to Photoshop Menu > Edit > Preferences, and choose Performance or you can press Ctrl+K shortkey and then click the Performance tab. In the History States, the default number is 20. Lower the number to 2 states and click OK.

Notes : Don't forget to increase your History States or change your History Options back after you're done or you'll be down to two undos.

How to Print Out Photoshop Action Script?


This is totally undocumented Photoshop Actions Trick, and if you need it, it's a real lifesaver. Once you've created an action, you can actually save a text document with all the actions steps, so you can have a printed hard copy of your action. Maybe its useful for education, backup or something. Even if not, its still worth to try this very rare tricks. OK, lets follow the step below.

STEP 1 : Open Up the Actions Palette. Go to Photoshop menu, click on ‘Window’ and then select ‘Actions’ or simply click alt+F9 shortkey.

STEP 2 : In the Actions palette, select the Action set containing the action that you want to save it as a text document.

STEP 3 : Hold alt-ctrl and from the Actions palette's menu, choose Save Actions. Sometimes the menu wont appear. If it’s not, you need to press ‘alt’ first and then hold it with ‘ctrl’(don’t press ‘ctrl’ first OR start holding both in the same period).


STEP 4 : When the Save dialog appears, you'll notice that the file extension is .txt (indicating it's a text file) rather than .atn (which is the Photoshop actions format). Find your prefered location and Click Save.


STEP 5 : Now you've got the text file. You can open it in any word processor to print out the steps.


Thanks for Reading. ^^
