How does it work?
I have Adobe PS 7 and have seen in discussions how you can go to atncentral and download different effects like cspringer skin repair, draganizer and stuff like that, BUT when I go to download it and click on the action it just pops up my PS and does nothing else....

Am I missing something?.

Help is greatly appreciated lol..

I don't know but PS 7 is really old - make sure what you're downloading is compatible with it. I would HIGHLY recommend upgrading..

I know I know....It there some way to upgrade without buying a whole new PS package?..

Comment #2

I know, I know. But is there anyway of upgrading without having to buy the program over again?..

Comment #3

You can upgrade from PS7 to the latest version, Photoshop CS3, for $199.00 USD...

Plugins: there should be a pugins folder that you just download them from the internet & then dump them into the plugins folder (located in the Programs-applications folder/PhotoShop app folder/Plugins I think). There are then folders for file types, filters, etc..

Upgrade: if it's a non educational license, then you can just buy an "upgrade" to CS2 or CS3. In order to do the CS3 upgrade, you will have to buy a CS2 first, if you can still find it & then it just might be easier to keep an eye out for a firesale deal on PS CS3..

If you are on mac, a lot of the plugins don't work on later versions of Tiger & Leopard or the Intel Macs..

If it does everything for you, then no sense in upgrading, unless you want 3rd party stuff to work. Also, no updates from Adobe anymore so operation on new OS is crappy at best.'OOOOOH, they have the Internet on computers now!' Homer J. Simpson..

There is a difference between Photoshop Plug-ins and Photoshop Actions..

Plug-ins are supplementary special purpose programs which can be called from within Photoshop, and which return their results to Photoshop at completion. This adds new or improved functionality to the main program..

Actions are "recordings" of STANDARD Photoshop tools used in a carefully developed sequence. Actions do not add features to Photoshop because they merely call features that are already in there. Essentially, when you buy an action, you are buying expertise in Photoshop use that can run by itself when you hit the "Start" button in the actions palette..

Now, I'm not sure, but I don't THINK you have to upgrade your copy of Photoshop unless the actions you want to run call features from within Photoshop that are only in those later versions. Sorry I cannot be more certain about that, but that's my guess..

Assuming that an action doesn't call features you haven't got in v.7.......

To load your New Action into Photoshop you must put a copy of it in a special folder reserved for available actions, and the easiest way do that is to.....

1) Right-click on the new action file that you want to load into Photoshop, and select "Copy"..

Then.....

2) Open Photoshop, go to Actions Palette and click on the little triangle pointing rightwards. A menu of options appears..

3) From the options Select 'Load Actions'. Windows Standard File Browser appears..

4) Notice at the top of File Browser next to 'Look in:' it says "Photoshop Actions." and that all the files in there end in ".atn" This is the target folder in which to place a copy of your action..

5) Right click into 'clear' space in the File Browser window, and from the options select "Paste". A "Copy of" your action then writes itself in the browser, and it appears selected in the selection panel at the bottom, too..

At this stage you COULD just hit "Load" and let the newly-copied action load into the Action Palette of your copy of Photoshop and become available for use in the program,........

....... but myself I would revert the name to it's original... and NOT have it remain a "Copy of..".

Therefore I suggest, before you do anything else, you rename it by right clicking on the file, selecting "Rename" and editing off the words "Copy of...".

Warning!! Do NOT accidentally lose the .atn file identifier..

When all this is complete, make sure the action is selected, click "Load", or hit "Enter" on the keyboard..

Now, when you go into the Actions Palette you should find that you new action appears in the list, can be called from there, and run just like a recording on cassette tape..

The above is the best I can do remembering PS version 7 operations. If errors in my recollection cause problems... I am sorry, but I don't think I'm too far out..

Best of luck. Regards,Baz..
