Install Actions in Photoshop Elements 8

by Erin Peloquin on December 2, 2009 · 39 comments

I know some of you have been waiting on pins and needles for information about installing actions in Photoshop Elements 8.  Here’s the bad news:

  1. It’s no easier to install actions in PSE8 than it was in PSE7.

Here’s the good news:

  1. It’s no harder in PSE 8 than it was in PSE7.
  2. Installing actions in PSE 8 uses exactly the same method in PSE8 as it did in PSE7.  You might not need to learn anything new!
  3. I haven’t had to refresh the mediadatabase file in PSE8 as much as in PSE7.  So the installation process might not take as long.  I’m not sure if that because I currently have fewer actions in PSE8, or because the software itself is different.  It would be interesting to hear what everyone else on PSE8 experiences.

Can any of you who are using Photoshop Elements 8 on Windows 7 or Mac confirm that my instructions are right?  Thank you so much!

Have you checked out CoffeeShop Rita’s Watermarking Action?  Might be a good one to test out these instructions on!
