30 Free Photoshop Actions for Retro & Vintage Effects


Frankly speaking, I’m a quite lazy girl that’s why I prefer to download free Photoshop actions on the web and to install them with a few mouse clicks.

How to Install Photoshop Actions

Firstly download the Photoshop action you like to anywhere on your computer. And then choose the preferable way to install it.

  • Go to ‘Disk C:’ – ‘Program files’ – ‘Adobe Photoshop CS x’ – ‘Presets’ – ‘Actions’. There you’ll see several files with .atn extension. Drag and drop your new action into that folder and restart Photoshop.
  • There is also an alternative way to install Photoshop actions that is also rather simple. From the right Photoshop toolbar open Actions menu and from the drop-down list choose ‘Load Actions’. A small popup will allow you to upload any actions from your computer.
