7 tips for success when recording actions

Added on Saturday 13th of May 2006 02:34 am EST
 

Application:

Adobe Photoshop 7/CS/CS2

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows

Actions can be a simple two-step command or they can be filled with multiple steps, tools, filters, etc. No matter how many steps your action has, here are some things you should know upfront in order to avoid frustration down the line.

        Not every command is recordable. You can’t record changes to tool options, anything that requires brush-based changes to pixels, or zoom and view commands, to name a few.

        You can record most operations created with the different selection tools, Crop, Slice, Paint Bucket, Move, Magic Eraser, Gradient, Type, Shape, Notes, Eyedropper, and Color Sample tools.

        You can record most operations that you can perform in the Layers, Channels, Paths, Color, Swatches, and History palettes.
