  • How to use Photoshop Actions in Elements 5

    Hi,
    I have just been introduced to this great forum so apologies if the information is available elsewhere - just can't find it !
    I have Adobe PSE5 and just discovered some great PS action sites but how do I get them to load & work ?? All assistance appreciated

    Sorry that no one has responded yet -- I don't use Elements and don't know the answer, but will this page help?

          yes, danny. There are several means of running action in Elements and some change with versions, but running through effects has remained the same.

            Richard & CJ - many thanks for the information - I now have several free downloaded actions working beatifully in Elements 5 .
            Don't supposed you know of one that will correct WB - I took some lovely macro shots with WB set at Fluro ..only problem is I was in bright sun so everything is way out (love my new DSLR but forgot to check first)

            Danny - would recommend you try http://atncentral.com/download.htm,
            I also purchased the E5 actions package from graficalicus and have them working nicely also

              In fact this is among my favorite sites. I've contributed a few PS actions and a tutorial I wrote on actions a couple years back is posted there. Excellent suggestion.

                DebT,
                I have a white-balance/color correction and dynamic range adjustment tool called Dynamic Images on my website. It costs a few dollars, but it is an interactive tool that will help you get the most out of just about any image:

                Follow the Downloads link or choose your version of Elements.

                  Hello... I'm somewhat new to all this and I recently upgraded from PSE3 to PSE5. I used Richard's tutorial (see link above) to install some actions into PSE3 and they worked GREAT! I just tried to use the same tutorial to load those same actions on PSE5 and can't do it... mainly because I can't find the "Effects" folder and the "Cache" folder! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you in advance!

                    Don't load the same actions. Go to the hidden power site and download the Elements 5 tools. The tools for Elements 3 will not all work reliably.
