FAQs

What is a Photoshop action and why is it beneficial to me?

A Photoshop action is an effect that you add to your photos. Every action is different, as it is made up of a bunch of different steps and combinations of Photoshop tools to help you achieve a certain look. This is beneficial to photographers because it cuts down on editing time. All of the steps that make up the action are completed with just a click or two of your mouse. There are actions for every type of edit and every type of photographer.

What does it mean when a preset is 'stackable'?

Lightroom presets are not like Photoshop actions in the sense that you can add many to one photo and the effects will all be applied at their full strength. If a preset is 'stackable' then that means you can add more than one effect to your photo. However, if the same element is used in both presets, they will not both be added at full strength...it will just take on the last amount added. For example. Let's say that our exposure of preset 1 is set to 4 and our exposure of preset 2 is set to 3. When you add both presets to your photo, the exposure will not be set to 7. It will be set to 3, since that is the last preset you added. If a preset is not stackable, this means that you can not add that preset on top of other presets or it will override all of the effects from prior presets and edit adjustments to that photo.
