    Posted by Stefan Whitt on July 1, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    Hey guys new here so I hope im doing everything correctly.

    So my question is, is there anyway to record a series of commands that i can then press one button and it completes it for me, exactly like photoshop.

    So i need to pretty much do this

    Duplicate layer > Gaussian Blur > Stretch 300% > Move Layer Down > Saturation -40%

    If i do this manually this takes a long time compared with the possiblity of a single button press.

    Thank you very much guys

    I takes a bit of research and trial and error, but you can go a long way with automation (ahk, quickeys…)

    I’ve used Hot Keyboard and similiar shareware in the past.
