1) The action you downloaded is contained in a .zip archive:
  • Open your .zip file, highlight the .atn file it contains and extract it to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop XX\Presets\Photoshop Actions ... provided you installed PS in that (default) directory ...If you installed PS somewhere else, search for your Presets\Photoshop Actions Folder and extract your .atn file there.

  • Open Photoshop, go to the 'Actions' Palette, click on the little arrow on the top right of your Palette, select 'Load Action' from the menu and, in the browse window, (it should already be configured to open the right Folder) click on the new action you downloaded ... The action is now added to your Palette ... Just double click on it to activate/use it.

2) The action you downloaded is an .atn file:

Simply place it in your Photoshop Actions Folder and continue as explained in the second point above.

Hope this helps!

P.S. you can drag and drop a atn file into opened ps (well 7 you can ) the only thing is when you open the zip drag into my documents ( or somewhere similar ) then drag and drop into ps
hope this helps
