Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving a set of actions, part of Up and Running with Photoshop Automation.
As you start to build your own actions or you start to…work with additional third-party actions, you're…going to find some of your favorites.…It's not a bad idea to put them into your own set and then save that set.…Here's how it works.…Remember, you make a set by clicking the Folder icon and then you can name it.…(SOUND)…Anything I drag into that set is going to become available.…If you Alt+drag it'll make a copy. You can modify that name as needed.…
I could take those actions, there I Shift+clicked and drag them in.…Now, the good news is, let's say you did start dragging some actions in.…We'll go to this Black and White Technique action, and I drag that into my favorites.…Don't worry, you didn't mess up the Black and white Technique.…If you simply reload that, you'll see that the default value's are restored.…So, you can very easily start to combine your favorites just by dragging them in.…
If you are concerned Alter+Option+drag as needed.…Let's load up one more set, and I'm…just going to use some of the ones I've created.…
