    Default Question about deleted step in Actions - Photoshop CS2

    Calling all Photoshop CS2 experts,
    I was playing around with Actions and accidentally deleted one of the steps in the Action that I had created. Can you experts help me how I can recreate that step and insert it into the Action ? Thanks so much, in advance.

    Dont think there's a way to retrieve it. Unless you backed up ur action before deletion.

    expand the action until you see the indivdual actions, click the step where you want to insert the action, click the record button and add in whatever action you deleted then click stop.

    Ah you wanted to insert a step - I thought you wanted to undelete that step.

    In which case kgston's directions is a confirmed winner.

    BTW, just like to ask about actions, after I save the action, which folder can I find in Photoshop so I can back it up?

    If I'm not wrong, they are not in any folder (although there's an actions/plugins folder). That actions in that folder does not update itself when you add new actions.

    You can export/back up your actions by using the "Save Action" menu item inside the Actions box itself - click on the triangle arrow thing.

    Rmb to click the action set first or else the save action button will be unavaliable, the first time i tried to save my action, it got me stuck there for like an hr b4 i figured it out... haha
