Little-known "feature: unless you explicitly save them, your actions are NOT saved anywhere, except in your prefs.

hmmn, typepad seems to not want to let me post the link to my blog in the url field...


Regarding the photoshop actions,
They are saved in the following file:

C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\9.0\Adobe Photoshop CS2 Settings\Actions Palette.psp

It might look like a shortcut, but it's not

I hope you managed to restore them

I have a little program backing up all my important preferences on a daily basis, since that is the stuff that REALLY takes time when restoring a system from a crash...

Another good idea is to start recording an action before you start changing any preferences on a fresh installation of PS. This way all your preferences are stored in an action.

Good luck


Guy is right, but unless you saved those actions - exported them, essentially, before re-installing Photoshop, they're gone, baby.

I'm new to your blolg, but thoroughly enjoying it - thank you.
