How To Make your own actions

Hi all ok i have a dumb question, I was wondering How to make My own actions the only programs i have are PSE 5&6 What program actually makes the actions you can use in any of the elements programs? Probally one that costs a fortune huh.....LOL I have been browsing alot of sites that offer actions but alot of them only work in Cs programs and i dont have them i dont even have Reg photoshop just elements, any help would be appreciated or maybe some help on making them as a template i can color myself that would work the same as an action but without it being an action
thank you for ur time

You're right Wendy, PSE cannot record actions... only Photoshop (CS2, 3, 4, etc.) can record actions. And in order for someone to record an action in Photoshop that works in Elements, the action can only contain commands that are doable in Elements.

There are plenty of good sites that offer actions specifically for Elements. Here are some of them:

If you are a subscriber to Photoshop Elements Techniques magazine and online video tutorials at www.photoshopelementsuser.com, the Sept/Oct issue of PET has a feature article on actions for Photoshop Elements. You should check it out, if you're not a subscriber... it's well worth the subscription.
