3. Within 2 days you receive via email "Your Actions.ATN" file - Photoshop action set created specially to edit "Your Image.TIF" file right on your computer; save it to hard disk

4. Run Photoshop

5. Open your original "Your Image.TIF" file (File > Open...)

5. Open Actions palette (Window > Show Actions)

click on small arrow button on the right-top of Actions palette and select "Load Actions..."
(see example »)

7. Loaded actions will appear in the Actions palette (see example »)
