    I totally love these, do they work for Elements too? I have downloaded them into my Elements, but they aren’t working! So sad!

    1. Yes, they are compatible with Elements 6 and up … please be sure to look at the included guides for both the actions and the separate instructions for the templates. :) You can also find them all (including videos) here http://paintthemoon.net/blog/support. :)

    Hello Annie! Thank you for this generous giveaway, you are too kind.

    I did have a question too…is the sharpening action only applicable for Facebook or can it be used on websites, blogs, Flickr, etc? Thank you, and again thanks for the giveaway and inspiration!


    thank you so much for this wonderful free stuff…i have elements 10 and dont see the actions for storyboard where is this supposed to be?


    never mind i just figured out it is a psd file…

    Thank you so much for the Freebies. They are great, especially the new Watermark actions. I am trying to find the Watermark Logo Bar Action, but it’s not in my list. I have the ATN file (PTMPPWatermarkLogoBar.atn) but no PNG or XML file so it’s not showing up in my Effects Pallet (Elements 9). I’ve downloaded it twice but only the ATN file is there. Any suggestions?

  13. Christina says:

    THANK YOU!!! Absolutely, I will share!! I really really love your storyboards! I’m so excited to use them!

  14. Emily says:

    These are truly wonderful. Thanks so much for taking the time to create and share these!

  15. Jamie says:

    Thanks so much! I liked and shared, but where do you find the actual downloads?

  21. Thanks for the kind words, Stacey! I’m just quick … I very rarely use a tripod and mostly never with kids … they are too fast! :) And I am constantly changing angles and perspectives – moving this way and that, crawling on my belly an then up again standing on a chair a second later – a tripod is just too restrictive for the way I shoot. :)
