History of Major Changes

Version 02.01 (10/09/2010)

  1. Added "Deeper Frame" action, which creates frames with a more pronounced 3-D effect.
Version 02.00 (09/30/2010)

As of today, Elements 9 has the following bug: starting the Action Player when editing a multi-layer image creates an extra, unnecessary, layer. This layer has a generic name, such as "Layer 1." I have reported this bug to Adobe. Meanwhile, I have made some changes to the actions in an attempt to help you deal with this bug.
  1. Added instructions for removing frame in Elements 9.
  2. Added a note about PSE bug and how it affects the "change color" actions in Elements 9.
  3. Added a note about PSE bug and how it affects Tweak actions in Elements 9.
  4. Changed Tweak Frame and Change Frame Color actions to move the frame to the top layer, as a work-around for the Elements 9 bug where opening the Action Player when editing a multi-layer image creates a new layer.
Update: On 10/06/2010 I received from Adobe a notification that they have verified the bug and logged it as a formal bug report.
Version 01.02 (05/14/2010)

  1. Changed name of temporary channel used for mats, so it won't interfere with the use of our other action sets.
  2. Remove the "Before Frame" channel when run "Remove Frame" action.
  3. Delete temporary channel when "Plain Border..." action ends.
Version 01.01 (05/05/2010)

  1. Grouped tweak and change actions together, for ease of use.
  2. Added "Remove Frame" action.
