To create an action, choose Window > Actions to display the Actions palette. Click on the Create New Action icon at the bottom of the palette. It looks just like the Create a New Layer icon, and is circled in Figure 2. Clicking this button brings up the New Action dialog box. Give your action a name (let’s call it "Luminosity Sharpening" for this example) and click the Record button. Notice that the button doesn’t say OK or Save; it says Record because it’s now recording your steps.
