I had lots of brushes put into my preset manager and now they have gone????? this has happened before to my patterns textures preset. one day open and find them gone???
Also is there a way that I can back up what is in my preset brushes and textures that are loaded??
many. ps cs5
HI i AM NOT SURE HOW TO SAVE THESE PRE SETS. They are ones I down loaded off the web. then when in photoshop when brushes or the preset manager i clicked load and put them into the preset manager that way. I had heaps and it was a lot to scroll through but generally knew where abouts to find. I know I often delete the zip file if that what they are in and just use from preset manager and wonder why they have 'gone' I did hav e a lot there and in patterns and textures and have wondered if ust too many there?????
I had tried unsucessfully to make my own folders within the preset manage ie put all grunge together, all botanical etc etc but was unable to dso this. I know I could set up this with in my documents but if working in ps and I want to use a brush i just want to go to brushes fly out or preset manager and not have stop to load as I want to use.
In the Preset Manager you can select several items and save them as a preset.
Preferably to the proper folder (either in the program folder or the user library) so that they can subsequently be loaded easily from the respective Panels’ fly out menus.
Preferences can become corrupted and if presets have not ever been saved they can get lost thusly.
thank you for your help. when I load some again I will have a go at saving in the prest manager. so do you recomend me setting up a folded in my doc,> my adobe stuff where I place what I have down loaded or should I save them to to adobe folders that are on programme files on my c drive. I am always a bit nervous about going there, olr maybe there is a 'web page' that will give step by setp instructions 'for dummies" also is a brush that I have down loaded of a site a called a preset or is that a group of similar brushes???
