One of the most effective ways to save time when you’re designing or illustrating is through the use of Photoshop actions – automated sets of commands that are executed with the click of a button. As you’ll know, they’re particularly useful when it comes to quickly achieving complex or hard-to-replicate effects, or when you’re facing any sort of repetitious design job.
That’s why we’ve taken the time to create a series of super-affordable, premium Photoshop actions for quickly creating vintage and retro effects. You’ll find all kinds of ultra realistic retro print effects – everything from offset to ink starve, wood type, halftone, retro 3D and more – at super low prices, over in the actions section of our shop.
There are also thousands of free Photoshop actions online. But when it comes to creating retro and vintage effects, quality resources can be hard to find, so we’ve put together this handy collection of some of the best options out there.
As you’ll see, we’ve included a few RetroSupply bargains among the freebies, too. These are some of our most popular retro and vintage Photoshop actions – they’re clearly marked, and might just help you take your artwork to the next level.
So read on for our selection of the very best free Photoshop actions for creating vintage and retro effects (plus a few ridiculously affordable premium options too)…
