I've made an action where by I use place and it then places the image in the new image,
Currently it references some file on my mac, how can I save the action to add on other macs without having to save the image file too?
Can it be embedded in the action?
Actions cannot deal with file paths beyond what is stored in the action itself or the overrides provided by the batch command. So no, what you want is beyond this and you wil lrequire scripting to dynamically deal with external files.
