How to uninstall older (or trial) versions of PanosFX actions
If you've downloaded a newer version of a particular set of Photoshop actions, it's recommended to uninstall the old version before installing the new one.
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
STEP 1: Unload the old version from the Actions Panel:
If the actions are loaded in the actions panel, please select the actions set (1). Then, click on the panel's trash icon to unload it (2):
Please be aware that this process won't delete the old version of the actions from your hard disk; it will only unload them from Photoshop. To delete the files, please proceed to step 2.
STEP 2: Delete the old version from your hard disk:
Locate your PanosFX action files folder. If you can't recall the location, follow these steps:
- Mac users: Press Ctrl-space for Spotlight, enter 'pfx' (pre-2021 versions) or 'panosfx' (from 2021 onwards), and wait. When the search finishes, click 'Show all in Finder.
- Windows users: Open File Explorer, go to your hard disk's root directory (e.g., C:), enter 'pfx' (pre-2021 versions) or 'panosfx' (from 2021 onwards) in the upper-right search box, and press Enter.
Next, select and delete the old or trial file versions.
STEP 3: Download the new files and load them in Photoshop:
Download the latest version from PanosFX. Save the zip file into the folder where you keep the PanosFX files. Extract the files, then load the actions in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements using the menu button in the upper-right corner of the Actions Panel.
Note: If you choose to store the actions in Photoshop's 'Presets/Actions' folder, restart Photoshop once you've done so. The PanosFX actions will then appear in the flyout window when you click the menu button in the Actions Panel. Click on a PanosFX set's name to load it into the Actions Panel.
