Installing Snu Resize It Action

10 posts in this topic

Please help. I am trying to install Syndee Nuckles' Resize It action. Directions say to install the styles first.

I have two folders for PSE - one with 16 .atn and 16 .png files and one with an .atn file that is an action player.

I'm confused as to what's an action, what's a style and what I should install? Do I install all of the .atn and .png files and the action player into the location indicated in the instructions?

That would be 33 files all together.

 

I'm working on a Mac in PSE 6 (Syndee told me it works in PSE 6) and I can follow the correct path from the instructions, I'm just not quite sure what to install.

Thanks for any help!

Sorry Marilyn I can't help. I've got a PC and PSE 9. I just bunged everything into Add-O-Matic and it works.

Thanks Belle. I think that what I'm working on/in doesn't matter as much as I know where to install it, I'm just not sure if I should be installing all of those files in there.

Hmmmmmm. Maybe I should look into Add-o-matic! :)

The .atn files are the actual actions; the .png files are the thumbnail images. So yes, you need to install all of these individual files into the location of the instructions. I don't think PSE6 has an action player (I'm pretty sure that feature didn't appear until pse 8 or 9), so you can probably skip that one.

 

 

 

P.S. - Styles would be .ASL files

Oh THANK you Theresa. Good explanation and exactly what I was wondering - the terms confuse me and I'm never sure what is what! Any and all info is very helpful

I appreciate your help ;).

Marilyn, the last I heard was that Add-O-Matic is for PC only. I know several people have looked for it for MAC, but I don't think it exists. Maybe the Add-O-Matic people will create one? ;)

And yes, right now it looks like Add-O-Matic is only for PCs. Which is a shame...I LOVE it and use it for all my installations :)

Thanks, Tiza for the explanation of the different file names! I never made those connections before.

And, MariJ, I install the .pngs along with the .atn's and it seems to work.
