How to install Photoshop Actions

First, download your purchase from your Photomorphis User Dashboard (directions here). Save the .zip file to your desktop and make a backup copy. Then open the .zip file, usually by double-clicking it. This should produce a folder containing the contents of the .zip file on your desktop.

Once you've got the files ready there are two methods for installing:

The Easy Method:

  1. Double-click the .atn files within the folder you’ve just created. That's all there is to it. Your actions should be automatically loaded into the Photoshop Actions Palette.

The Not-So-Easy Method:

If that doesn’t work (because of the way your computer is set up), or you have multiple versions of Photoshop on one machine, then you’ll need to do things another way:

  1. Open Photoshop, and click on the Actions Palette menu button (located in the top-right of the Actions Palette.
  2. Select “Load Actions."
  3. Select the .atn file(s) you wish to load.

IMPORTANT for Photoshop Elements Users: Make sure you're in Expert mode before starting this process.
