When you refer to Macros---are you referring to Actions----and yes, anything with that is .atn is cross platform usable.

Yeah my bad... i'm thinking of M$ there... :) So how would I do it, simple drag and drop of the .atn file into the target's photoshop directory?

You can actually place them anywhere you want on your computer, but it is probably wise to create a subdirectory in a Photoshop file tree. Then you just load them from Photoshop.

ok in your adobe photoshop folder there is a presets folder inside the presets folder is the actions folder (as well as a lot of other folders) ...drop .atn files in there it is very simple

uh... ok... :confused: no need to be rude. I never said you were responsible..

I know you told me where they were. The actions that were made were in the Default Actions file. They were not in a separate .atn file (I didn't make them at the time). I tried to make a new one, and I thought I transferred the actions to the new atn file but I didn't save it and lost them. I will need to remake them again and make sure that i save it.

Apologies not being rude just wondered if you had any trouble finding the proper folder wanted to make sure you were following the proper file path. I am concerned something has been modified in your photoshop. Ok Maybe actions are not supported in Photoshop 7 if there is no default actions folder I would check at this point with Adobe tech support miss.

I would have thought this would have summed it up :D

I had to remake them and this time i have saved them :) I think the default actions are somwhere in the application itself and not as a normal .atn file.

Thanks for putting me in the right direction though.,
