If it doesn't show, then I would go to start - find and search for these files *.atn

Be sure to include the asterisk.

That should show you all your action files and you can check in properties where they are.

De-Crack .atn

Thank you Sharon - actually I had done that and all I can find are the normal atn files (Default Actions, Commands, Frames, Image effects, Productions, Text Effects and Textures) I'm afraid I don't understand how to use what I have (in Actions)and the book is not very helpful for me. But, I will try again. It would be nice to know it (De-Crack) was in there even if I can't use it yet as I get several people bringing me really crackly pictures and I don't like to blur gaussian that much in order to clone them back in shape. Really appreciate your response...Gail

Gail,
Welcom aboard. Even if you don't use the De-Crack action, there is a tutorial to do it manually in the tutorial section of this site. I have used the action and it works great. I have Photoshop 6 but I believe Tim added a download version for 5.5 also.
If you have more troubles with using the actions let us know and maybe we can help you out.
DJ

DeCrack Download

The problem seems to be that I don't know how to get the WinZip .atn file loaded into PS actions. I have tried to unzip it where it is and it opens PS but then it is where? I have Eisman book and haven't really learned how to use any actions yet, let alone download one...but I have pictures that are very crackled and can't be cloned so I've used gaussian blur. I would like to get Decrack in....and the tutorial is good and I think I understand it somewhat, but I don't know the steps to load it into Actions. I did the arrow, load action. I just went into PS to describe the steps I took but I can not locate the download for DeCrack... maybe I just thought I downloaded it as I believed one time I had saved it to the desktop but it's not there (I know I deleted one because I was frustrated - then when I tried to download it again off the tutorial site, it just runs and runs and never finishes loading...whereas before I thought it gave me the option to save it as a WinZip file...I must've been dreaming. So, frustration is setting in, but I'm not ready to give up. I will try to download again and see what happens...or doesn't happen. Is there any other way to get the file? I have DSL right now so it isn't my computers ability. Really glad you share your insights. This is a really nice site. I've read some of the other comments and ideas and I think I will enjoy growing and sharing some of the pics I've finished as I'm told they are very good. Thanks again. Gail

More De-crack loading info

I went back to the tutorial and asked to open the file - WinZip came up and I agreed and it took me to PS, like before. Then I asked to Save As - and have it in a file (zipped yet). I don't get it - how to put it into the actions (load actions) files. I try to load it out of the file to Actions and it doesn't show up as a subfolder. And, like I said, when I unzip it it just opens up PS and I don't know what that means or where it is. Send more help. Thanks, Gail

Use Winzip to extract the ATN file to wherever you want it to go (the folder with the other ATN files might be a good place). Then open PS, make sure the actions pallette is showing, and click on the little right-pointing triangle located in the upper right corner of the actions pallette. One of the options will be "load actions...". Click that, and point it to the newly extracted ATN file, wherever you put it. Click "OK" and it should be available from this point forward.

It seems as if your problem is in working with zipped files. If you want, I could send you the unzipped form of the file. Then all you would have to do is Save to file and locate Program Files > Adobe > Photoshop 6 > Actions and just save it in that file. then follow Dougs instructions to load it. You can e-mail me here and include your e-mail address so I can return it directly.
It's the least I can do for a fellow Michigander. Even though I'm a displaced one.

Advice

Doug & DJ: Thanks for your advice...Hope you two are making nice. I appreciate the offer to send the unzipped file, my computer breakdown seems to have affected more areas than I was aware of...have a few glitches - like lost left pane in my explore so I have to open two folders and then each one has to open a new window to show subfolders,etc. Trying to work it out with MS...but I haven't had any problems with PS yet, so I'm assuming it's in the Op Sys '98 - I lost or messed up some of my registry. I am dangerous.
