When i create my own presets with CameraRaw, i can save them on my Mac. But when i take a look in the path: library/application support/Adobe/Cameraraw/settings I can't see my own saved presets here? Where does Photoshop keep them?

And in case the difference is not clear already, the literal location of the path in your post is the central read-only system location outside of any user accounts…

[STARTUP VOLUME NAME]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

 

…which is not the same as the correct path for where your own settings are stored, which is within your own user account:

[STARTUP VOLUME NAME]/Users/[USERNAME]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

 

Sometimes you see that in shorthand, with the ~ symbol as the first character, so if you see that character at the beginning a path in a help file or web page, don’t ignore it because it means a user’s path, not the system path. For example:

/Library/… would be the system location.

~/Library/… would be within a user account location.

 

If a Mac has 3 user accounts, each user would see their own settings in the Library folder within each of their own user accounts, not the central read-only settings in the Library outside of all user accounts. This is the standard hierarchical folder organization for Mac/Unix and Windows systems.

I understand that i should be having 2 directories on my Mac, the problem is i only have one!

 

But wait.... After some google searches, i found out the library map on my user account is hidden! 

With CMD + SHIFT + . (period) you can make the hidden files visible. And voila, i found my own created presets!!!

Thanks for the suggestions!
