what is electrolytic action, and what is the different between electrolytic and galvanic action?

We have an electrolytic action when we pass electric current through a solution and at the anode and cathode we have deposits of negative and positive ions respectively.
Galvanic action is primarily oxidation of a metal or a substance using the moisture in atmosphere.

Electrolytic is about the electrlyte and galvanic is about the metals that will be the electrodes for a galvanic cell.
