    PSP file won't load into PS 2017

    MitziMay2004 Level 1

      I saved my actions palette, it saved as a PSP and not an ATN file. I have put it into the actions menu but it doesn't recognize it, It tells me wrong file type. I am running PS CC 2017 on windows 10. Help greatly appreciated.

          Photoshop save your save your Actions Pallets into your Photoshop's preferences in a file names "Actions Palette.psp"  Is contains all off the action sets you have loaded in Photoshop and ant medications you have made.

           

          When you save Action Set they save into a file named "Action Set Name.atn"  You can save and load *.atn  from  and in to your Photoshop's Actions Palette.  These  *.atn can be in any folder.

           

          You did not save your actions into "Actions Palette.psp"   That file in you Photoshop preferences folder contains your current Actions Pallets Content.  It is loaded into Photoshop when you start Photoshop and Saved when close down Photoshop.  Should your Preferences be reset you may loose any Actions you have edited or added.  So when you edit or add actions you should save the actions sets involved into *.atn file for safe keeping.

          The Actions Sets that are install by  Adobe that you can load.  You can save and load you in any folder on your system.

                How do you save you actions Palette.  Photoshop does not have such a feature.  You can close Photoshop and copy "Actions Palette.psp" out of you Photoshop version User ID preferences folder to a folder of your own for safe keeping.   In case your Photoshop preferences get reset or wipped out.    Also use It when you install a new version of Photoshop  you can also use the file to get you Actions palette to the way you like it.  

                 

                If you have made a copy of "Actions Palette.psp"  close down Photoshop and then copy the copied "Actions Palette.psp" into your User ID Photoshop Preferences overwrite the "Actions Palette.psp" file in there  with  your copied "Actions Palette.psp" file.    When you then start Photoshop you Actions palette should be populated like it was when you closed down Photoshop to copy "Actions Palette.psp" for safe keeping.

                  That folder is normally hidden.  To see it you must change your windows File Explored View options.

                      Quit Photoshop. You will need to rename or move the file titled Actions Palette.psp, then rename the file titled Actions Palette [2].psd to Actions Palette.psp and then restart Photoshop and check if the actions are visible. If they are, immediately save out the actions as individual .atn files.

                        Actually you did not follow my instructions you did  not overwite the "Actions Palette.psp" file in there. Now delete the "Actions Palette.psp" file in there. Then rename the "Actions Palette(2).psp" file in there to "Actions Palette.psp". Then start Photoshop...

                          I am having this same problem and have tried to re-name the actions palette.psp file and it still doesn't show up when I try to load actions in PS.  I just changed to a new computer and thought I could save the folder and re-load to ps. I have spent hours on this.  I didn't have problems like this last time I upgraded computers.  I am running Windows 10. Please help!

                            You should be able to load actions from any folder you saved actions set in. Your *.atn files.
