  • HPA 2 and HP Tools

    After installing HPA2, the HPA 2 tools show up on the welcome screen, as intended.

    The original tools (from the book CD) show up in the "How To" palette.

    However, if I click the "Other" tab and then click "Actions", I'm into the HPA2 tools with no way out except the "back" arrow. So, if I want to use the original tools after an HPA2 tool (say, "Quick Mask"), I seem to be out of luck (or I hit the back arrow a lot).

    Am I missing something?

    On my set up, if I'm in the actions in the How-to section(which is where I usually use them as they can stay undocked and I don't have to keep digging the Welcome window open) I can get back to the Hidden power original stuff from the actions by clicking on the blue and white "Hidden Power" logo at the top of the palette.

      Using HPA3 with book tools?
      by dpnew

      I just installed the HPA3 tools, and I can't figure out how to get from the free tools to the tools that only come with the book. How do you find the menu for the book tools?

      Hidden Power Actions III
      by Richard_Lynch
      A new version of Hidden Power Actions (the interface for running Photoshop actions in Elements) is available...this time through ThePowerXChange in conjunction with, um, me! This package adds:

      50 pre-installed actions (87 total)

      ability to install over 500 actions
      Excellent additions and design
      Not much has changed
      I like it, BUT (send to [email][email protected][/email] or discuss)
      I'm confused (send to [email][email protected][/email] or discuss)
      I need another answer (discuss)

      SnapActions and Hidden Power Actions II
      by camner
      Are (is?) SnapActions compatible with HPAII?

      If so, is there a point to having both, or are they simply two different efforts to accomplish the same thing (enabling PS actions in PSE)?

      Where's Split RGB Channels function?
      by frankB
      I've installed the tools from the CD, and added the additional tools from the web site. Seems to work, but can't find some tools. When I open the "welcome window" I see bonus tools, action playback speed and quick mask. There's some other stuff under 'set 1' and some under the demos tab....

      Just a little glitch
      by 2003blink
      I just got my HP book on Monday, and installed the tools from the CD. I did have the free tools already installed, and Lings UI with snap actions.

      The HP install has hidden my snap actions, any quick tips on getting them back?

      I had another small problem.
