View Full Version : Need help with installing actions
07-27-2006, 04:57 PM
OK...this is going to be a WAY stupid question, but I love the look of several (OK, more probably ALL) of AC's actions, but I have absolutely no idea how to install these actions or use them. I bought a few when I first started digi SB'ing a few months ago, but I have yet to use them (cuz I don't know how...). Instead, I've been using (for example) overlays for the inked look on the edges, and I know that I have an action that will do it...I just don't know how :(
Can anyone help?
P.S. I'm using PSCS2.

You don't really have to "install" actions. If you just put them in your "Actions" folder inside Photoshops Presets folder then you can load the actions when you want to use them. But if you are like me and have way too many you can keep them in another folder. When you want to load an action, simply go to your actions palette. Click on the arrow button which allows you to load, save, etc etc. and load that action. Then hit play :)

Do you still need help? Here is a tutorial I found for you.
Was the inked edges action a freebie? If so, where oh where did you find it? :)

I have loads of actions and like to keep mine seperate from the presets. Like someone said, you can stick them in any folder you wish to load from.
