Photoshop actions can be a serious time saving tool when editing photos. Rather then repeating laborious steps to create a photo effect, Photoshop actions allow you to create an effect in as little as one click – pretty handy when your time is valuable.
If your new to Photoshop actions, they are created from recording the steps you took to complete a task – you can then save and replay this action again without having to go back over each step of the task. Photoshop actions can be created and saved, but crucially you can import actions that others have previously created.

I am by no means an icon designer, so I went in search for gorgeous, pixel perfect social icons that I could use in the project.
The 15 free social icons below are part of the collection I put together, I hope you find them useful and download them to your icon collection.
