Hi, I just bought and installed Photoshop Elements on my Mac Book Pro. Unfortunatelly I cannot create a new action, because the button "actions" does not offer "new action". Just the presets.... Who can help me?

No Elements versions can create actions, they can play actions. You need Photoshop to create actions.

Hi

Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from the Photoshop forum where you posted.

@nickli22, Why not try searching the internet for "photoshop elements actions" or "photoshop elements plug ins"?

I have done that Walter. and every time I do all I come up with is photoshop plug ins and Actions. I would be fine with purchasing some of them but they dont seam to work on elements..If you have any ideas on how to go about this I would love to hear them. That being said thanks for taking the time. Cheers.

Nickli22, You may not be digging deep enough in your search. There are LOTS of them available! What type of action or plug-in are you looking for? I'm not going to search for you, but here's one website with lots of free actions. The Coffeeshop Blog.

If I used Elements or thought I might have an answer for Katrin, I would have done so, Nickli22. @MichelBParis was able to give her an answer fairly quickly on 3 January.
