If you use Photoshop on a regular basis you probably have made customizations to the way that Photoshop functions. A common thing to modify or add to the default Photoshop configuration would be actions. Actions allow you to record multi step processes so they can be repeated easier in the future. One of the more common Actions that might be created would be the batch modification of a set of images as described in a QD article located here.

The actions described above are stored in your Application Data folder so knowing exact location will allow you to back this file up in case you ever need to restore it in the future.

Windows XP Location: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Adobe Photoshop CS4 Settings

Filename: “Actions Palette.psp”

If you want to restore this file either because the file was lost or if you even want to transfer these settings to another computer simply close Adobe Photoshop CS4 first. Then copy the backup into the folder mentioned above and restart Photoshop CS4. The actions will automatically be loaded into Photoshop for immediate use.

If you have not upgraded to CS4 you can do so by purchasing the below upgrade.

    I really was having trouble with photoshop cs4. I ‘ve been trying to blend my pictures but i have not yet grasped the concept. Anyhow, I’d like to let people know that there is a risk when downloading photoshop cs4. My computer crashed because of the download.

    Hello sally,

    It sounds like there may be another issue with your computer. If downloading a file made the computer crash then there is likely something else wrong. Could you possibly be out of disk space or something similar. Hope you were able to get your problem resolved.

    Thanks.
