    Hi all,
    I'm a photographer and I'm working on creating photoshop actions to quickly processes all the photos I want to put on my blog. Whenever I post vertical images to the blog, I like to put two side by side in one image. When recording the action in photoshop, it does not record my dragging one image into another canvas. How do I go about doing this properly, so that photoshop records when I drag one image onto the other canvas?

    Thanks

    Have you tried it via copy & paste instead of dragging? It may not work though, as the action only wants to paste into the same named file, as the action records the name of the file you copy into. But it might work if you use the same file to paste into and then save a copy of it.

    It won't let me copy the image, even if I make "layer from background"

    For the record, I know it can be done. I did it once before, however that was a while ago, and I have no way of getting back that action to see how it was done...
