Let’s try this again…

It’s not secret that I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to sharing actions with you guys but I’m certainly willing to try! It sounds like some people had trouble when the actions being unflattened so I’m flattening them and sharing them that way too. Here are all the links…choose the one that’s right for you and let me know if it’s working!

Color for full photoshop – unflattened (updated that with the right link!)

Color for full photoshop – flattened

Color for elements – unflattened

Color for elements – flattened

If you’re an elements user there are some tips in the post below for how to load actions. Amy also had a good tidbit in the comments section about how to color balance in elements. Help each other out in this comments section too if need be!

Have a fantastic weekend!

I just wanted to say thanks! I’m excited to play with some of my pictures:o)

LauraJanuary 26, 2008 - 8:08 pm

Thanks Erin!!! The flattened one works for CS3 now 🙂

DaisyJanuary 26, 2008 - 9:34 pm

Wow! You’ve opened up a whole new world for me! I mostly use photoshop for resizing photos. I had no idea where to begin when it came to messing with any of the other stuff (and still don’t, but after seeing what your action did to my photo, I might have to chase down some Scott Kelby books since you recommended them in your questions-answered section.) Thanks!

Thanks, this is amazing. The first one didn’t work for me, but it turns out I didn’t load it right. But I used the flattened one and will try the unflattened tomorrow.

CarrieJanuary 27, 2008 - 6:30 pm

Thanks Erin! I have been a lerker for a long while and love your pictures. My problem is that I have Elements and I have tried using the tutorial that you provided in the previous post but I think my problem is that we are running Vista and those instructions are for XP. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks again! You have a beautiful family!

Carrie, I did a quick google search for you and found this site…


I scanned it and it looked like the info that you need. I hope it helps. I LOVE GOOGLE!

Awesome! Thanks for sharing. The unflattened version worked for me in Elements 5!

Thanks so much! You’re so generous with sharing! I’ve been your blog stalker for a year now and actually took Wendy’s class because of your recommendation. I’ve come a LONG way since then. Thanks for being a great inspiration!

Arg…am I the only one who can’t get it to open in PhotoShop? I have PS CS…is that why it won’t work? I tried saving the files from GigaSize to my desktop and opening them in PS. I also tried just opening them and downloading them from the site…my PS automatically opens, but nothing shows! Ugh… can anyone help? I didn’t think I was this computer-illiterate!

OkemaJanuary 30, 2008 - 4:28 am

Coming out from being a lurker to thank you for the action. I used the unflattened version for PSE and it worked just find. Thanls for sharing!
