CS3 Action Transfer To Photoshop CS4

Hi,

I have been using Photoshop CS3 and just installed Photoshop CS4.

I want to install or transfer all my Photoshop CS3 Actions and Batchs to Photoshop CS4 Exactly As They Appear In Photoshop CS3.

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Hersul

Re: CS3 Action Transfer To Photoshop CS4

C:\Documents and Settings\Keven\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3

Copy the folders from the above to the below. You will have to show hidden folders to see the application data folder (tools>>> folder options >> view> show hidden files and folders). Always save the files from below somewhere else before you copy over them.

C:\Documents and Settings\Keven\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4

You can also save the folders of your actions and then just drag and drop them into CS4. It’s always a good idea to back up atn's anyway.

If you installed a program, you must install it again, especially if it has a password.

Hope it helps,
-Keven

Thank You Kevin,

I tried your suggestion and it worked absolutely perfect and as you stated, I had to physically install all the plug-in that required a password.

Have a wonderful evening.

Best Regards,
Hersul

Re: CS3 Action Transfer To Photoshop CS4

Yea plug-in’s are a pain. But having to reinstall them really makes you realize witch ones that you really need and use often. Not to mention how much money you may have wasted...

Anyway, I’m glad it worked out,

How can I do this on windows 7, I dont have a documents and settings folder. I checked in the presets folder where the actions should be, but none of the actions I've created, or downloaded show up there. It's a real pain re-downloading all these brushes and actions, hope you can help me! Oh I have 64 bit windows 7 laptop, if that helps any. Thanks!

EDIT*

I realized something, that when installing an action or brush, I would always choose open with photoshop, I dont know if this means anything, but could that be why my actions arent in my actions folder?

Re: CS3 Action Transfer To Photoshop CS4

In Windows7Pro/64, I found the settings folder under:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3

We needed to migrate a photoshop user profile from one computer to another, CS3 to CS3. So I took everything in that directory and copied it wholesale into the new one. BTW, you must have Photoshop closed when you do this. All the Actions came over beautifully. Woohoo!

Cheers,

Ryan
