If you're new to editing using Photoshop to edit photos, or just haven't ever tried out their Actions feature, you're going to LOVE this!
Actions are programed sequences to help you do more complicated tasks with ease when using Photoshop.
If you haven't already signed up for Adobe's Photoshop, here's the link to check it out. If you're new to Adobe, you may even be eligible to try it out for FREE. They offer monthly and annual memberships, so you can commit as much or as little as you like. If you're thinking about using multiple Adobe programs, definitely look into their Creative Cloud All Apps membership. It's a much better value and gives you access to over 20 different design apps, including Adobe Illustrator, one of my other favorites that I use in a lot of tutorials around my site.
If you enjoyed my tutorial or found value in it, I'd appreciate it if you gave it a little love on social media!

Here's the original photo that I'm going to be using -- if you're following along, just use one of your favorite nature or landscape shots.
Below is the step-by-step video that will walk you through the entire process (It's seriously only a handle or so of clicks -- EASY!)
For those watch the video and are wondering, I went with #8. ;)
There are all kinds of different actions out there for photography that all work the same way. You can even record your own!
Even though I'm pretty handy in Photoshop myself, I still find it helpful and fun to use actions created by other digital artists. (Sometimes they save me HOURS on a project!) Below are a few others that I've fallen in love with over the years, that you might find useful as well. They can all be purchased through DesignBundles, one of my favorite sites for digital tools.
This is another good one for landscape photography. It can take a regular photo and really make it pop by giving it a high dynamic range, with a few simple clicks by enhancing the photos natural highlights and shadows.
