In one of our previous articles, Create a New Document Preset in Adobe Photoshop CS5, we learnt how to create a document preset and save it for future use. The other day, one of our users asked if he can import document presets onto another system that has Photoshop CS5 installed on it. The answer to the question is yes, it can be done.
All you have to do is locate ‘New Doc Sizes.psp’ under following paths:
For Mac OS X: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets
For Windows XP: [Drive]:\Document and Settings\\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings
For Windows Vista: [Drive]:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings
For Windows 7: [Drive]:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Adobe Photoshop CS5 Settings
NOTE: In Windows, the ‘Application Data’ or the ‘AppData’ folders will be hidden. Enable them by choosing ‘Show hidden files and folders’ in the Folder Options or in your control panel (‘Folder options’ in the ‘View’ tab).
Else just go ahead and type in the folder name in the path.
TIP: You should be able to import the ‘Document Presets’ in the earlier versions of Adobe Photoshop as well (though I have not tried all the versions).
You can also import other presets that are found under the ‘Presets’ folder under this path;[Drive]:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\
