You can delete any action steps by selecting them and then clicking on the trash icon, at the bottom of the actions panel. To select multiple steps you can hold down the Ctrl key (PC) or the cmd key (Mac) and click on each step.
But, are you sure you don't need these steps? The action recorded every step you took to refine the selection. If you delete these commands, the selection will look different when you run the action again.
First deactivate (exclude) the particular steps instead of deleting them. To deactivate a step, click the check mark to the left of the action step:
Then run the action again. Are you happy with the result? Then delete the excluded steps. If not, activate them again.
Thanks so much. The tutorial required selecting an image, recording every stroke. Your response was most helpful. I am finally getting a feel for Photoshop--thanks to all the great tutorials and to this forum.
Wow, thanks so much. I can't wait to go through the links you provided. I will get back to you soon and, again, many thanks.
Dave, thanks so much for your response. I am just now going through Photoshop Essentials tutorials for the second time. I had to step back for a bit because there was much to remember. I now have a better understanding of the Selection tools, Recording Actions and saving to desktop. Just discovered Filter, Render, Lighting Effects (love it). Best yet I can Add/Subtract using the various Lasso tools. I actually don't know why I need to learn Photoshop at all, but I just want to. When I am a bit more comfortable, I will try applying some of this knowledge to the many family photos I have saved on my desktop.
