Hey David, I thought I replied to this tutorial before. Oh well --- Great job on an easily understood tutorial. I do have a question though. I saved an action as a text file, some time ago, and I'm trying to save another as a text file. When I save the action, using ctrl./alt, it does save it with the name I give it. But the text it saves, is one that is already saved. Any ideas on this? The action was saved as a new set. I'm baffled!

Ed

hmm, sounds strange, I'll have to do some experimenting to try and figure out what's happening since I haven't done much with it yet (haven't had much time lately) but I'll post a workaround as soon as I can figure it out (IF I figure it out that is...)

Aha! I think I found what's happening, did you scroll down all the way to the bottom of the text file? I never realized it before, but when you save an action as a text file, it saves the information you were intending to save at the bottom of the file, under all the other text files of actions you've saved before. I'm really not sure why it defaults to doing it that way, does anybody else know how to stop it from doing that? hopefully that sort of solves your problem Ed!

Thanks David. That's too easy. I'll give it a try.

You're a whiz David! It works great. I just copied that part of the file to a Word document. Worked well. Thanks again.

good to hear that it worked, Ed! too bad I can't figure out any way from stopping it from doing that in the first place though..

If you have a technique you use often involving lots of layers, filters, blending modes, etc. it can make things a lot easier for you in the future by automating it all. [details]
