I am curious. Is there a downside to adding Photoshop actions or effects.

Are there security concerns or do that adversely impact Photoshop performance?

Hi :slight_smile:

I’m not a graphic specialist, but I like to play with Photoshop actions a lot in my free time. I have tons of actions, in a separate folder - and I’ve never had performance or security issues.

It worth mentioning that if you set up Photoshop correctly for performance, most probably you’ll be able to use a lot of actions and effects without problems (but that depends of your computer configuration too)

Here is an interesting article showing how to boost Photoshop performance:
