Hej, 

 

is it really still not possible to sync settings and presets between several computers using photoshop cc 2021?

 

I have a macBook and a workstation (Win 10) and need to sync all settings and presets (brushes, actions, colour settings and shortcuts). Some year ago I remember this was possible using Adobe Cloud, but now I learned Adobe cancelled this opportunity 2015(?). 

 

2015 is 5 years back in time, is there still no way to automatically sync presets? Can’t believe Adobe pushed Photoshop in to the cloud without giving its users an efficient way to sync. 

 

Whats would be the most efficient way share presets (actions, brusches, shortcut color settings etc.) between computers today? 

 

Thank You!

Anders

It should be easy to copy user application files between  machines if  your  install Photoshop versions into Adobe's default locations.  On windows  user application data dpe Adoneapllpication are off  "C:\Users\jjmac\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\"

OK, thank you!

 

I was hoping there would be a more efficient way to do this. Your method works for synchronising once in a while, but not for continuously.

 

Have a nice day, and thank you for the screen shot,

Anders

You can copy your Photoshop preferences to each install on your machines and you can copy or share your photoshop assets via network shares and also via Adobe Cloud and Cloud libraries. Mac OS changes and M1 present some problens check Adobe posted issues.

Can you explain this further?  You mention Adobe cloud, which I think would automatically keep machines synced when signed in under the same account.  

 

Am I able to use Adobe Cloud to do this for all settings, presets, actions, brushes, fonts, etc?  If so, how do I set this up?  I have various items- gradients, overlays... in my Photoshop "library."  How would I include actions, settings, etc. here?  Is it possible?  If no-what other options do you suggest?

 

Specs: 

  • Adobe CC 2021
  • Photoshop 2021 (22.1.0),
  • Lightroom Classic 10.1 (also have Lightroom CC installed, in HOPES of it being the key to syncing, but don't use otherwise)
  • Mac OS, desktop running Catalina 10.15.7
  • MacBook Pro running Big Sur (current)

Plus (if it makes any difference) I use an External SSD for images, Dropbox for Backup and storage of Presets/Actions, plus overlays, backgrounds, etc. (could Dropbox somehow work to keep any of this synced ?)

 

I really feel like there HAS to be a way... 

 

Thanks so much

Nicole

No, one touch syncing even across the same platform still cannot be done in 2021. Adboe takes our money, outsources software development and support to the cheapest labor hire providers in the gloabl south and laughs in our face. Even such obvious features as this are too much bother for them, be thankful for synced libraries, that took a decade from feature request to acutality. Did I mnetion Affinity products?
