    I think not but I need to ask: is there a way to 'personalize' actions, for example, have a dialog box come up and ask for a number which can then be used on something else?

    Ugh hard to explain.. Like, if I wanted to increase the canvas size by X amount (variable depending on the size of the photo). It would throw up a dialog box for the X, then use the user input number to incrtease canvas amount by.

    Hope that made sense :banghead:

    I think the answer is no - that's why one can write Scripts (if one is clever enough!)

    you can check the boxes next to the actions after you have recorded it, which will allow you do do such a thing. you could have a string of actions and then if you wanted to resize something it would pause, until you entered the size and hit enter. in the same way I have an action i made which will pause for each picture and let me crop it how i want before continuing with the rest of the steps and saving.
