I have just made a complicated set of actions for my workflow and want to save them on an external drive and also add them to a laptop. Can anyone tell me how to do this in simple terms. Thank you.

  • For better reference you should tag the program you are using.

  • Open the Actions Panel Window -> Actions

The action needs to be saved in a folder, as you can only export a folder of actions, not the action itself.

(You can call the folder the same name as the action - to make it easier to find)

Thanks @Ovaryraptor for reminding me of this.

  • Click on the drop-down menu (top right)

  • Select Save Actions

(this will give you the option to export your actions)

    It's worth noting that the action MUST be in a folder to save otherwise you can't perform this. Please update your answer. Nov 20, 2017 at 20:54
