    plug-in or action? not the same thing leh...

    plug-ins are third party programmes that work with photoshop.

    actions are recorded sequences of photoshop tools being used, e.g. autolevels then unsharp mask then save for web.

    you talking about actions is it?

    Hi Pai
    Thanks for your quick response
    I guess you are right - in that I am referring to the macro recording function that saves scripts into the action tab.
    I have been trying to figure how to save the scripts into *.atn files - as the action files are atn (from my limited understanding of photoshop.
    So you if you know how to save personally created recordings - would appreciate if you could share

    Once again, thank you for responding
    Hope what I asking is clearer now

    Cheers

    argh, i spent a long time typing out detailed instructions about how to record actions, then finally realised that maybe all you wanted to know was how to get your actions into an .atn file...

    ohwell. i think you can only save action sets, not individual actions in a set. so when you're making your actions, record them a new set, not in "default actions".

    once you're done recording, select the set, then look for a button on the top right side of the actions window. it's a round button with a triangle on it, and it's just under the close window button.

    click on that, and a menu should appear. choose "save actions", and choose the name and location of the .atn file.

    hope that is what you need.
