Organizing Actions PSE9

I would like to group my actions in the Effects Palette in PSE9. Searched the threads here and found instructions for earlier versions using "xml files". Not sure if this method is the same for PSE9. If so, where do I find the xml files in PSE9. If not how can I group my actions in PSE9 in the Effects Palette?

Hi ..

The method is the same for PSE9 as it was for PSE8 so just follow those instructions

The XML files go in the same folder as the action files. You must have them named the same as the action file name and the PNG files name. It is not hard to make your own, but if you search this forum, someone posted a place to download an automatic small program that will let you make them fast and lots of them at one time. Sorry I do not have the link, but you can do a search for XML generator. The action files for PSE 9 are the same as PSE 7 location. I forgot which system you have, but if you have win 7 it is different folder location.

Organized

Thanks Tom for your reply and info. Spent last night and finally organized all of my actions into categories. I used a form XML file and found the process simple once I determined the required steps. Will search for the XML generator that will be helpful if found.

So glad that you have managed to sort them out OK. Creating the xml files is pretty easy to do once you have sorted it out so its easy enough to make them yourself

Hi,

Here is the link for the XML generator Tom mentioned. The PSE7 version will work with PSE8 and 9.

Another alternative is to use Graffi's Add-O-Matic.
