Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Hi -

I may be missing something obvious, so apologies in advance...

I can follow the instructions posted above for installing actions in PE 6 on my Macbook, but I ran into a major stumbling block before I even got started.

I'll be transferring the actions files from my old copy of Photoshop 7 on my iBook, but where are they located? I opened PS and noted the names of a few of the actions, but couldn't locate them in any of my PS support folders.

There are some files (not folders) that appear to be likely suspects, but they look to be proprietary files that contain the information for multiple actions, not just the one action I might be interested in moving to Elements.

Can someone straighten me out?

Dave

Try Adobe Photoshop 7/Presets/Photoshop Actions and see if they're in there. There are SOME actions in there, I know.

Alternatively, try creating and saving a new action in PS7 and then use Spotlight to go hunting for it.

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Thanks for the pointers, but no luck I'm afraid. (BTW, the Photoshop 7 on the old machine was running under Panther...)

I found that actions folder, but the only actions in it are the stock Photoshop ones - none of the many ones that I created myself over the last few years.

I did a system search for the names of some of my self-created actions to no avail, so I suspect the self-created ones are contained in some kind of proprietary individual file that holds them all, perhaps the one I came across in my earlier search.

So, I may have to find someone with a more recent OS (Tiger or Leopard) who can create the one action I most need (which is a simple resize operation), and they can send the file to me to install in my Elements folder. I think I can live with that.

Dave

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Konocti,
Open PS7.. highlight the action you want to save... click the little arrow pointing right at the top right of the Action menu for a fly out menu... click save actions ... The action will be saved into the Photoshop actions folder so you can find and move it later... Repeat for all the actions you want saved for transfer

Hope this helps

These will be where you stored them. Photoshop does not have one place where you are forced to place action files. if you search for .ATN files you may find them, but you should be able to search by action name as well. If you cleaned up your system and threw out the actions, the files may not exist. You can resave them out of Photoshop using the Actions palette and Save Actions. When you save them (which actually might be easier than finding or recreating them), you can locate them anywhere you want.
