How Do I Make a Macro Open a Selected Image in Photoshop?

I have a macro written that automates turning a transparent PNG into a 144x144 icon for my Stream Deck, but I'd love to be able to automate a bit more. I'm hoping to be able to select an image in Finder, trigger the macro, and have it open the file in Photoshop (the rest of the macro will occur after this, of course), but I just can't seem to figure out how to do it. I see the "Open a File, Folder or Application" action, but I don't know what to do about the "Open" section. Any ideas? It's probably something simple that I'm not seeing...

The Action you are looking for is called "Open Finder Selection". And in that Action you pick the app you want to use.


@Zabobon Thank you! That worked perfectly! :slightly_smiling_face:
