And as a bonus, every action we create in class is yours to keep and use forever!
Module 1: Actions & Scripts 101 | We will start with defining the difference between an Action and a Script. Then we will move into understanding your Actions panel and subsequent menus and explain all of that confusion away!
Module 2: Creating Basic Actions | We will start slow and create a number of basic Actions that will show the general idea behind recording, playing, loading, saving, and organizing your Actions.
Module 3: Creating More Complex Actions | Dive deeper into the realm of Actions and learn how to create the most efficient and intelligent Actions possible, as to avoid those pesky error messages and stops.
Module 4: Actions for the Boring Administrative Stuff | Together, we will create an impressive list of Actions that will quite literally cut your administrative workflow in half! Taking our new knowledge of Actions and combining it with an introduction to Scripts, prepare to be blown away! Resizing, renaming, watermarking? Photos, scrapbook pages, designer previews? One file? A dozen files? 500 files? Learn how to automate it ALL with the click of a button and reserve your precious time for the fun and creative side of life!
Module 5: Actions for the Fun Creative Stuff | Still working together, we will apply the beauty of automation to our own creativity and learn how to preserve our favorite photo adjustments, effects, and stylizing techniques.
