I am struggling with getting actions I created or used on my Mac in CS6 to work on my PC (also CS6) at work. Would this be some kind of issue because they might have been created in an earlier version of CS? I have downloaded actions from the internet and used them on the PC version of CS6 and they have been totally fine.
Any actions that I've sent myself from my MC to PC simply won't open, I get the following error message: 'Could not complete your request because the file is not compatible with this version of photoshop'.
Is there anything I can do to get this working? For the record I get the same error with gradients as well.
Thanks for your help,
I don't think that's making a difference here tbh, after a lot of clicking on different actions in my folder, one has opened successfully in Photoshop. None of the others will, but that one doesn't say .atn at the end either - the PC can tell it is an action though, as it says it under file type.
I've already uncompressed the folder sadly. What is odder is that there always seems to be two folders, one labelled MAC OSX and the other with the name I actually gave the folder. The one action I could open would open into Photoshop from the folder which I named, but not the Mac folder, when I double clicked on it there, the same error message came up as the others. I think station_two is correct in that I guess they got corrupted somehow en route
Your pc won't read the stuff in the folder labeled _MACOSX.
If by chance the e-mail service is corrupting the fles, though it shouln't if there in a zip folder, you could create a free
account on acrobat.com and upload the folder there and download them to your pc.
the PC can tell it is an action though, as it says it under file type.
On Windows there is the possibility of file extensions being hidden from your view. That's almost universally confusing and for some reason it's the default!
I think that may be playing a factor here.
This should give you the ability to see all file extensions that are actually there. You may have to log off and back on again to get this to take effect everywhere.
