The “Allow Tools Recording” option in Photoshop actions panel

I tried to create an action in Photoshop to add watermarks to my photos. I used brushes. However, when recording the action, I saw that there was no step added to the action when I clicked and applied the brush. To fix the problem, I searched some for some materials on Google and found that I have to enable one option in the Actions panel. The option is called “Allow Tool Recording”. Working without this option being checked, all of my behaviour with brushes would not recorded. The picture below tells us how to find this option. I enabled it and achieved my target.

Remember to check this option when you want to recording new actions in Photoshop.
