Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Some might be interested...I actually made some progress on updating my website and got a page up on running actions:

Richard,

That's wonderful! Your directions are complete and replace the less thorough version I posted.

Just FYI (and you may already know this), there is a link on http://hiddenelements.com/elements_6.php that is bad (the link to http://hiddenelements.com/6/elements6_tools.html).

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Camner,
Yeah, after I put it up I noticed it was there, and figured I'd have time to change that today before too many people got at it. Thanks for making sure I knew. I was optimistic about having a few other things up, and likely will today.

Michael,
I may have changed my original plans due to just not being able to get to what I wanted and may be making them available this week. The free set will certainly be up. There may be some new sets too...but I hesitate to explain what those are as I have to do it around meeting deadlines for writing and making some changes to my online classes.

Thanks for the interest!

Thanks, Richard,

Your installation instructions have prompted much interest in other forums and many are awaiting for new stuff for PSE6.

Glad to hear. If there are any forums you know where I might be able to answer questions, let me know.

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Richard, thank so much for so much AWESOME information on maximizing the potential of Elements. I know that you're busy, and NOT tech support, but I was following your online instructions for installing actions on a MAC/OS and ran into trouble. In my library, the following folders just don't exist (I do use the program... constantly): Photoshop, 6.0, en-US, or locale. I ran a spotlight search on the mediadatabase file and it simply doesn't exist. There IS a Photoshop 6.0 -- only a presets folder resides inside.

I'm really at a loss for what to do next. Can you advise?

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

Spotlight won't typically find the files because by default Spotlight won't find system files that Apple in its infinite wisdom doesn't think we'd ever have to find.

In order to find system files, you need to click the + sign next to the "Save" button on the top of the Spotlight window (the one that comes up when you click "Show all") and be sure to include system files in your search.

Re: Installing actions in PSE 6 for the Mac

I can't replicate the issue. Are you sure you are reading the path correctly?

on Mac 10.4+: [your system drive]:Library:
Application Support:Adobe:Photoshop Elements:
6.0:Photo Creations:photo effects:

You can't just find a Photoshop folder somewhere...it has to be in the Library. If you open your hard drive folder and start from there using this exact path IN ORDER, you will find it. Don't use spotlight.
