Re: Photoshop CS5 - Can actions be modified??

Good staff, 10X,

I could not find the way to edit the text that is in the action. if i double click it insert the text. i didn't find the script in the Adobe folder.

let's say i inserted "Uri David" watermark text and i want to change it to "Uri David 2012"
how can i do this?

thank you in advance

Yes actions can be edit/modified the Action Palette is a full fledge action editor. Often you better off not doing the save in the action itself but use the image processor or automate Batch to run you action. These can do the save for you athe image processor script can resample resize and save. Can even process images you have open in Photoshop where you made other changes.

Download my crafting actions package I think if you read the text files you may learn some things.
Action Actions Palette Tips.txt
Action Creation Guidelines.txt
Action Dealing with Image Size.txt
Action Enhanced via Scripted Photoshop Functions.txt
CraftedActions.atn Sample Action set includes an example Watermarking action

Sample Actions.txt Photoshop CraftedActions set saved as a text file. This file has some additional comments I inserted describing how the actions work.
