How to Install Elements Actions (versions 15-20)
Step 1: Receive Your Download Email
Step 2: Download the Actions
Can't find your downloaded file? Downloaded files are often found in the downloads file on your hard drive.
Step 3: Unzip the Files
Save the extracted files in a documented location on your computer. In the picture above, I have saved my unzipped file in my downloads folder, with my zipped file.
Step 4a: Install the Actions (option 1)
Open Adobe Elements
Select Expert mode
Open the actions panel by selecting Window --> Actions
Below is a screenshot of an open actions panel
Click on the dropdown menu to the right of the word actions and select load actions
Next, a screen will pop-up that shows the file pathway and final location where your actions will be installed. From this screen, click on the location of your unzipped file (in this example, we kept the location in the downloads folder). Select open, and this will load your actions.
Your actions are now loaded and ready for application. Click on the arrow to the left of the action collection folder to expand the contents of the folder.
Step 4b: Install the Actions (option 2)
Alternatively, you can navigate directly to the installation location by following this file pathway on your computer:
Users --> Your Name --> Library --> Application Support --> Adobe --> Elements --> Presets --> Actions
