Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Editing an action, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
Here we are going to see a simple example of editing and action.…I am going to come to my Actions panel.…If you don't see it, it's under the Window menu, right there.…I am going to be working with one of the Textures actions, specifically Green Slime.…If I expand Green Slime, these are the steps that it uses to get this result.…If this wasn't what you expected or wanted, undoing is going to involve…undoing all of these steps, which is why all of these actions include as their…first step Make snapshot.…
So it always gives you an out.…You can always restore things to the way they were before you ran the action.…So that's what I am going to do there.…If you do want to edit one of these actions, it's not always completely…transparent where the particular thing that you want to edit occurs in…this sequence of steps.…So it may be useful to change the Playback options of the Actions.…Now at the moment and typically, I am running in Accelerated mode, i.e. let's…make the action happen as quickly as possible.…
