Heya there,

First time user to this site so be gentle :thumbsup:

One of my queries with this software is saving actions. Is it possible?

Id like to make my post production work much quicker. Say if i use the unsharpen mask function for ALL of my pics at the same percentage, and also add a certain amount of colour to ALL pics, is there a way of doing this to all open pics by saving this to one action?

I have read about it using another photoshop vresion, but the actions button isnt available on Elements 2.0, (as far as i am aware).


Was wondering if there is a way to de-select multiple sections of a photograph when using the magic wand.

I'm having a few dramas when inserting backgrounds into photographs.

Is there a way to de-select a certain area of a photo once you have pressed 'select similar'? At the moment, i have to de-select individually.

There must be a faster process?????

Thoughts? Comments? Help? :flowers:

Hi veronikaka!

I'm not sure about saving the actions. I know that you can save them in Photoshop, but I'm unfamiliar with the ins and outs of elements.

As far as deselecting a portion of the background once you've already selected something, try choosing a lasso or magic wand tool, then hold " alt " while using the tool to subtract from the selection (also can hold " shift " while using a tool to add to the selection). Try the wand tool first (if it's available in elements). Click just once, and if the results are undesirable, then press ctrl+Z (edit>undo) to undo your last action.

Hope this helps!
