The “Dreamy” action mentioned in the email will not download. I get the save screen but then a message that says this file may have been deleted or moved. Can you check on it? I received to emails for the PET “Dreamy” Action and neither will download.

I took a look at the link this morning and everything seems to be in working order (we test out all of these download links on multiple computers, just to be safe!). If you’d like to send me an email at email@example.com, I can try emailing you the action instead – hopefully, that’ll do the trick!

I try downloading and opening this file. All it does is to open Photoshop Elements. There is nothing else. I am working on a MAC

this file will not open. When it is downloaded and opened, it just opens Elements.

Hi I was able to download the PET “Dreamy” Action without a problem. It was easy after using and learning from Karen’s Video in PET. I can’t wait for her 2nd Video using Full Edit. Ed Weidman.

It doesn’t work in Elements 10. It takes me to a point then it asks me to adjust the top 2 layers, but the only command I can click on is the stop button and then it reverts back to the original.

I use other actions that I have loaded into the Effects area, and they work fine. Is this an action that will only work in the Action Player section of Elements 10? I’ll try to load it again.

This action does work in Elements 10, but you’re correct – it only works in the Action Player. It does not work in the Photo Effects tab of the Content panel. So you will have to follow the path to your Workflow Panel folder on your computer.
Since a lot of people seem to have problems finding it (I don’t know why they have to hide it so well!), I suggest just doing a computer search for a folder entitled “workflow panel.” I did this on my computer (I have a MAC in my office) and on my studio computer (which is a PC) and I was able to find it on both accounts. Also, don’t forget that when you do copy and paste that action to the folder, you have to restart Elements for it to appear!
Feel free to message us at our customer service email with further questions!

I can not find an “Action” folder. Where did you locate it?
August 21, 2012 at 11:48 am
I have a MAC and under Application Support>Adobe>Photoshop Elements. (I selected 10, but I also have 9) there is no “Locale” folder. There is one in the other Library but no folder that says Workflow Panels. In fact I can find no such folder on my MAC

As I mentioned to the other Timothy in my comment above, try searching for a folder entitled “workflow panel.” If you’re on a Mac, when you do a search like this it will typically show you the ‘path’ of where that folder is located on your computer.
Again, if you run into any more issues, feel free to drop us a line at our customer service email!

IMPORTANT NOTE for Windows 7 Users:
Check out the instructions in the cheat sheet that comes with the video lesson. You may get stuck trying to find the ProgramData folder – and its subfolders.
The ProgramData folder is a hidden folder on your system. You can easily make it appear by changing the folder options. The following article explains how to show hidden folders in Windows 7:
(I usually make all my “hidden” folders visible when I first set up a computer – so I completely forgot that the install folder may be invisible to you. Sorry for the confusion!)

It works fine for me in the action player area. Thanks.
