I recently got rid of a laptop on which I had grown accustomed to PSE 7. I learned how to install actions via the following method:
Download .atn file
move to Photo Effects folder
create a .png thumbnail with a matching name
allow them to load!
this worked perfectly
now i have pSE 10 so I looked up the procedure for adding actions onto this version and it appears to be the same exact process. however, i have added a .atn file (seps.atn) and a matching thumbnail (seps.png) and neither the thumbnail nor the action show up in the PSE program. (yes, I have 'show all' selected.)
and this is in the photo effects folder.
I don't understand how I'm doing something wrong but somehow I am. please help me?
Erin over at Texas Chicks has the most comprehensive list of installation instructions. Scroll down to the PSE 10 section and click on your operating system:
