Upgraded to the latest PS version since the old one suddenly started freezing on the splash page.
Absolutely cannot stand how the gradients and swatches are in folders. How do I ungroup them, please? When I try and import new swatches each import ends up in a separate folder.
Figured it out. You can select them all with a shift+click and drag them out of the folders.
Adobe, this sucks.
This is a user Forum, so you are not really addressing Adobe here, even though some Adobe employees thankfully have been dropping by.
And I think being able to organize Photoshop-presets better (as with groups for example) has been a long-standing feature request.
I'm all for the option being there, I think it's gonna be great for a lot of people. I am not a fan of them abruptly putting all my swatches into them without asking me and not making it easy or intuitive to get them out.
Thank you so much! I couldn't figure out how to work with that.
I. Hate. Folders.
I hate that everything I used to be able to access in a single click is now nested into a million folders.
Please add an option to remove assets like gradients, swatches, and shapes UNIVERSALLY from folders--to disable it universally.
I hate almost every single change Adobe has made with this new version. I am one "feature" update away from ditching the CC sub I've had for years and moving to a competitor program.

»I. Hate. Folders.«
I suppose you mean »Groups«.
There are Photoshop users who did not like having all the presets of one kind presented as one hodge-podge series of icons/names etc.
Maybe the new options will truly never be of advantage to you but if you give it some thought you might appreciate thtat they could be to others.
As for Photoshop Feature Requests: Please post those over on
That's why I said an OPTION to remove it. I'm not telling them to get rid of your groups if you use them. I'm telling them not to force them onto ME.
You are right to voice your wishes, but you are not exactly addresing »THEM« here, this is a user Forum.
Please post a Feature Request and post the link here so that others that might share your exasperation can find it easily and add their votes.
I'm going to be that guy for a moment... I don't like wasting screen real estate, nor do I like wasting time picking a color when as a visual artist, I know exactly which ones I want to use at a mere glance and these folders do exactly that. IDK who asked for these folders, but if they honestly need these things then they need to stay away from anything visual and take up programming. There should 2 and ONLY 2 folders Web save colors and print safe colors, anything more is nothing but a waste. The only exceptions are Pantone books.
So do us all a favor and point us in the right direction.
Thats rediculous, they are horrible. 98% of the users hate the folder system, but two% "might find them useful".
What do you base those numbers on? Have you actually asked at least 50 Photoshop users?
Take a look at this Request from 2011 for example:
Any why would Photoshop users hate Folders for Presets anyway?
When one uses Groups for Layers then using Groups for Presets does not seem such an outlandish concept.
