How To Install Actions In Adobe® Photoshop® Elements® 13
Ready to learn how to install Actions in Adobe® Photoshop® Elements® 13? If you are a pre Elements® 11 customer then you understand how revolutionary the switch has been from installing Actions in the effects palette to installing Actions in the Action Player. If you are upgrading to Elements® 13 from a version prior to Elements® 11, the prepare to be shocked and awed.
There are no more thumbnails.
No more media database files to rename.
None of that nonsense.
Look at the image below. Easy Peasy.
This new version actually mimics the way Actions are installed, stored, and loaded in the full version of Photoshop.
For a developer like me, this is amazing. Compatibility and testing in Elements has always been pretty difficult, but now everything changes.
Can I get an Amen.
If you have a version of Elements®, that is prior to 11 and you are someone that works with Actions a lot, I recommend switching to Elements 13. I was able to download it from Amazon for $69.99. That is a GREAT price for any Adobe® Photoshop® product. Amazon offers direct software downloads so there is no need to wait for boxed software to arrive or deal with CD's, etc. It is quite a long download, at least on my iMAC so be sure to set aside some time to be sure that your internet has a continuous connection. This process is the same as with Elements 11 and 12. We are working to come up with a video to support those two versions specifically but this should work perfectly for you.
Let's take a look at how easy it is to install Actions in Adobe® Photoshop® Elements® 13.
