I updated CS4 (student version) to CS5.5 commercial version. The brushes, patterns, shapes and styles I had installed in the CS4 Photoshop version were not loaded into the new version. I no longer have the original files of these assets (or customizations).
How can I load these in the updated version?
Wow, I don't think I've seen a response that more completely misses answering any part of a users actual question.
IberoMedia, do you still have Photoshop CS4 installed? So you can do things like run it, save the assets out of Photoshop CS4, then run CS5.5 and load the assets in I mean.
how would i save a brush I loaded into CS4 to CS5?
Save as an .abr file on your hard disk as shown in the following image, then load into Photoshop CS5 using the Load Brushes entry:
It's not a bad idea to save your custom brushes on disk from time to time, as you would be protected against the loss of Photoshop settings.
