ActionsXXL works under Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista, XP (32-bit & 64-bit).

It requires the following applications to be installed:

  • Adobe Photoshop Elements (Version 6 and higher)

All menu items and most dialogs of ActionsXXL are localized to the language of Photoshop Elements, but a few messages are displayed in English or German only.


Supporting Plugins

There are three special plugins which support ActionsXXL: ElementsXXL, LayersXXL and FilterHub. ActionsXXL cooperates with them for playing and recording actions. Especially ElementsXXL helps ActionsXXL to play back actions that were recorded in Photoshop and that would not run in Photoshop Elements otherwise. However, the following versions are required to make it work:

  • ElementsXXL (Version 3.50 and higher)
  • LayersXXL (Version 1.50 and higher)
  • FilterHub (Version 1.05 and higher)

Older versions of ElementsXXL, LayersXXL and FilterHub are not able to cooperate with ActionsXXL.
