I am brand new to Photoshop – where do I start?

A good place to start for “newbies” is FREE Photoshop Training Webinars at Pretty Photoshop Actions!

What the heck are actions?

Actions are files that load into Photoshop and/or Photoshop Elements and play out steps that the creator recorded. They usually help fix issues like exposure, contrast, etc., or they add creative looks such as vintage, black and white and more.

The Using Actions in Photoshop webinar is perfect for helping new Photoshop/PSE or action users to learn how to download actions and when & how to use them.

How are actions installed?

Installing actions varies by the program you have. If you have Photoshop CS or CC, click here. If you have Photoshop Elements 6 – 10, click here. For Photoshop Elements 11-15 users, click here.

Will actions work on a Mac?

Definitely! In fact, I work on a PC desktop and a Macbook Pro laptop and all actions have been tested on both operating systems.

Will actions work in Photoshop as well as PSE?

Definitely! 100% of the actions work in both Photoshop CS3 thru CS6, CC (Creative Cloud), and PSE 11 thru PSE 15. And, when you purchase action sets from Pretty Photoshop Actions, you get the Photoshop and PSE sets; no need to ask for upgrades should you ever move up from PSE to Photoshop.

Do you have any free actions?

From time to time we do offer free actions.  Be sure to check out our weekly specials for limited edition FREE Photoshop Actions.

How do I install and use overlays?

Overlays are actually images. You do not “install” them into Photoshop/PSE like you do actions. Instead you layer the overlays on the image you wish to add them too.

Do you give refunds?

No. Because these products are all instant digital downloads or online workshops we do not offer refunds.

Do you teach Lightroom workshops?

I do teach Lightroom, but not here at Everyday Elements. Instead, I am the “Lightroom Instructor” for Pretty Presets. You can check out what live and recorded classes we have available by visiting the workshop page there.
