To Install Save to a permanent location on your harddrive Open Photoshop Open Actions Palette Click on the drop down menu icon Click load actions Browse to where you saved the actions
To Apply Click on the arrow next to the action folder Different presets will now appear below the folder Click on the action preset you wish to use and click on the 'play' button
Different settings can be disabled/modified in the layers palette A rainbow appears on some of the presets and has a blur applied. If the rainbow looks too blurred or not blurred enough, you can easily modify it. In the history, go back one spot to undo the blur (the blur is the last to be applied). Then redo the blur with the setting that best suits your photo. You can also change the intensity of the rainbow or how it is applied by modifying the top layer.
Why do my photos end up so dark? I'm new to this along with photoshop itself. Any suggestions? I am prompted to rasterize my photo about the 2nd or 3rd step into each action and end up with dark photos.
