I have no idea IF this can be done, but for those of us that work with tons of mockups and repetitive actions, this would be really handy. Also, it would allow us to share image treatment actions with teammates.

That would be fantastic. There is a library area called actions already so it maybe possible

@John Maguire - Oh, there is? HOW am I missing this? Can you point me in the right direction to where you're talking about? :-)

EDIT: Or do you just mean where the actions are stored in the PS folder? Thanks!

Here's a screen grab of my history panel. In the drop down I found actions in the list. Haven't figured how to add to it even though it already shows one.

@John Maguire Agh, okay! Thank you! :-) I'll look at this more when I get home. I feel like I'm drowning in brand assets, lately, and I feel like actions could help me cut down on some things...like our color overlay templates for example. Some thingsĀ are just better as actions. Thanks!

After a little digging I found that actions cannot be moved to a library. What you can do is find the preferences directory on your hard drive. In there all of your brushes, styles and actions are saved. Copy the actions directory to a shared directory or a cloud account that all of you workers have access to.
