How to Create Action Sets in Photoshop CS6

By Barbara Obermeier

Action sets keep you organized when you’re working a great deal in Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 6. All those bits of creative genius can get a little overwhelming. If you create your own sets of actions, you may want to include some or all of them in custom sets that you can load or remove, as needed.

Just follow these simple steps to create Action Sets:

  1. Display the Actions panel in List mode.

  2. Click the Create New Set button in the Actions panel or select New Set from the panel pop-up menu.

    The New Set dialog box appears.

  3. Enter a name for your actions set in the New Set dialog box and click OK.

  4. Drag any existing actions that you want to include from their locations in the Actions panel to a new location within your new set folder.

  5. Create any new actions that you want to include within the new set.

  6. Select the name of the set and choose Save Actions from the panel pop-up menu.

  7. Save the set in the Actions folder (which you can find in the Presets folder within the Adobe Photoshop CS6 folder).
