    Copying & Transporting “Actions” in CS3

    A while ago, Mongo created some frame actions in CS3 where they have continued to live and work happily. Mongo has promised those actions to another AP member who would like to use them.

    Question : - how can Mongo copy those actions and send them to the other AP member via email or PM ???

    Please note that Mongo has looked in Programs – Adobe – Adobe Photoshop CS3 – presets – actions. While a number of other actions appear there, the ones that he is interested in (along with about 80% of the others) DO NOT appear there. So, it seems He cannot copy them from there.

    PS - does anyone know where the “actions palette menu” is to be found in CS3. Some instructions Mongo has say to “duplicate” in the “actions palette menu” and similar instructions that all talk about the “actions palette menu”. What it currently looks like is attached below

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    They are just in a folder on your computer.

    Look under Program Files : Adobe : Adobe Photoshop CS (version) : Presets : Actions

    Then just copy and paste to your desktop or a known place (USB drive for example). Then you can take them with you, email them etc. To install on another PC, do the opposite and copy them to the folder on that PC (as per above). Restart Photoshop and they will be there for use

    thanks Rick but as you will see from Mongo's post , Mongo have already looked in that exact location and only about 20% of the actions Mongo has and uses are actually listed and shown there - really bizarre. The ones Mongo wants to copy are not amongst those

    I have no actions, Mongo, but look at their file extension and then forage for others that may be located elsewhere on your drive.
    (Or do I have to eat my hat?) Am.

    Actually, they are *.atn files.
