Answer:

Process, or instructional, essays are usually written in the imperative voice, as if one is giving the reader orders: Example: How to Make a Grilled Cheese Sandwich 1. Butter both sides of two slices of your choice of bread. 2. Heat a nonstick skillet to medium heat. 3. Put three slices of your favorite cheese between the bread...etc.

Answer:

A comma splice is a sentence made up of two unrelated sentences joined by a comma. To fix it, substitute a period for the comma and capitalize the first letter of the second independant clause.

Question:

How can Actions be used in Photoshop to speed up a professional photographer's workflow?

Answer:

Using the Actions palette, photographers can record a series of keystrokes, menu choices and settings used to enhance an image, and then "play" them back to make the same changes to one file or an entire folder of images. These automations can make global corrections on large quantities of images much faster than a Photoshop user could do working on them one by one.
