I have searched and read how to locate and add atx files to addon folder and I have done that but when i go to load actions in PS it doesnt show up. I cant find photoshop by going in thos format 

 

  • (Windows) C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop <version>\Presets\Actions

I can only find it by going this PC  to C drive to program files to adobe then PS 2022 and I place the file into the correct folder and nothing. If I go the route of username to aapp data I dont have PS in there just LR and raw and some other things. 

 

This is bothering me bc I had them there the other day and I wasnt aware I updated PS and now they are missing...

  • macOS 
    Applications > Adobe Photoshop <version> > Presets >Actions
