How to Install Photoshop Actions

Peggy Farren 2013-08-25

The procedure to load Actions is the same in Photoshop CS and Photoshop Elements.

First download your new Actions and save them somewhere easy to find (on your Desktop?). Now open Photoshop or Elements. From the top menu, click on Window then make sure Actions is checked.

At the top left of the Actions palette, you'll see a little icon - an upside down triangle with lines next to it. Actions menu

Click on that and you'll get a drop down menu. Click Load Actions. Load actions

A new window will pop up. Find where you saved your action (desktop). Click on it and it will automatically load in to your Actions palette.

Now try your action. Make sure it's highlighted and press play. Watch the magic happen to your image! Play Action

You will love using actions!!
