I was working last night on and Photoshop suddenly crashed. Had around 400 brushes created by me and now are available only in .psp format which I can't import, which is located in (C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Adobe Photoshop 2020 Settings), and when I am trying to access the preset manager, there are only contours and tools to import, but no brushes. Another thing I tried was opening the .psp file directly and it doesn't open it and pops an error that states "Could not complete the request because it is not the right kind of document.". Total b*.

Hope anyone can help me with this stuff 😞

If there is a way to export the .abr files out of the preset file, I would be very thankful. Thank you! Atm I am searching for a solution myself, but hope somebody can help me out with this too 🙂

Hello, did you try to install an older version (2019), and check if you can open it that way?

I tried to open it in Adobe Fresco, but still, it doesn't read such formats and doesn't have the presets library, just pure brushes to import (.abr).

I tried to decode the .psp format and it includes two files of a total size of 1.4GB, but its contents are unreadable anyway.

Too bad Adobe doesn't care about people losing their stuff as long as their software is "intact". Doing hard work and ending with wasting months in vain is a perilous experience for their product users since nobody wants to fix their bugs or the vulnerability into their program code, making things older jewel creations incompatible in newer versions of their software. What a shame, and what's the sense of keeping this useless .psp file, generated by their own Photoshop product that can't be opened in either of the versions. The finale of this thread will be one shrugging his shoulders, nothing else. But I hope there will be an answer to this. Thank you in advance, and I am here, waiting for an answer to be told.
