Default PSE5 Actions & Brushes Tut's needed!

Hello!

I can't remember if I posted this question or not, so I'm posting again, sorry!

I really want to learn how to install/use Actions and brushes in PSE5... I have some actions that I want to use, I just don't know how! All the tut's I've seen are for CS2/3... the installing part I think I've got, but I don't see them showing up in the program?? (I really don't know where to look!)

I know there has to be an experienced PSE5 user here that can help me a teeny, tiny bit?!? PLEASE?!?! :p

You might want to check out the forum at Scrapper's Guide - http://scrappersguide.com/forums/ - I'm sure they'll be able to help if the info isn't already there someplace.

Thanks for the link Linda!

And for anyone else who is looking, I found an incredible offer! There is a free video tutorial for installing actions in PSE 5 here:

http://www.scrapartist.com/shoppe/pr...3&cat=0&page=1

I haven't watched it yet, but I'm planning on checking it out sometime this weekend! I will let you know if it works!

I'm using the german version of PSE5
but whatever i tried, i can't get actions to work in the program,
they don't appear anywhere
the same problem with styles

but brushes are easy to install
open the windows explorer
C:\Programme\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 5.0\Presets\Brushes
just put it in there and you can use them in PSE

Hello Everyone! Not sure if you are still looking for PSE Actions.....

But I am currently working to get all some of my actions to work with PSE. I currently hae one freebie on my blog that is a PSE action for making designer previews. I hope you will check it out.

The download comes with installation instructions & a tutorial, too!

Enjoy!

Brandy

Wow! Thanks Brandy!!

I'm not a designer, so I don't think I will be able to use the free action you have on your blog now, but I will definitely use the INSTRUCTIONS! :p

I have tried installing some actions, but I'm just not seeing them in the program... hopefully, once I check out your instructions, I can get them to work!! I use PSE5 right now, but am planning on upgrading to PSE6 sometime soon! I will be bookmarking your site! Thanks again!

Don't know a lot about actions myself but www.PanosFx.com has free actions for PSE. According to him, actions created for PS don't work in PSE correctly as they have left out certain things in PSE. He does tell you exactly HOW TO FIND YOUR ACTIONS and where to install them to. LOL! His actions are really great as they stop after each step and tell you what he's going to do next or how you can adjust the current step to suit yourself. I love his PSE actions. He has photo bends, etc. His blog has a special forum section devoted to his PSE actions and question threads. He's very good about answering you right away, too. He has a lot of freebies and also some more advanced that he sells.
