Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding, downloading, and installing actions, part of Photoshop for Designers: Textures (2011).
As well as using the texture preset actions as well as editing those actions and…as well as writing our own, we can of course use actions created by anyone in…the Photoshop community and there are a great many of them out there.…I am just going to show you one particularly good example.…I am on the Adobe Exchange web site and I am in the Photoshop Exchange section…and I have gone to the Actions part of that branch of the Adobe Exchange site.…
In the Photoshop actions, there is this particularly good one,…Handcolored vintage photo.…It's fantastic action.…Download this and then install it by putting it in your Actions folder which is…in your Photoshop folder in your Presets folder.…Having done that, we are now ready to run the action.…Come to the Actions panel to the panel menu and choose Load Actions then we can…navigate to that Presets folder, to the Actions folder, there it is right there…and there we have just loaded the action set.…
So this is actually several actions, there are four of them, Ageing, Colour,…
