Depends what OS and version of Photoshop your using;
For example Wondows XP Professional anh Photoshop CS5 32 bit version curves presets are in two places and are *.acv files
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Curves" Defaults for all
"C:\Documents and Settings\Your User ID\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Curves" your saved presets.
Make sure you have the nine default preset. Search for *.acv if you cant find the. You can get the from your system backup...
Scripts default install tre is "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Scripts"
Photomerge is a script "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Scripts\Photomerge.jsx"
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Presets\Scripts\Image Processor.jsx"
Thanks for your answer but I am working with Mac OSX 10.6.7. All of my software is up to date. Do you have any other idea?
Use Finder to browser to /Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS5.
Look into the Presets folder. There should be 30 subfolders ranging
from Actions to Zoomify including Curves and Scripts.
Look into the Presets/Curves folder. There should be 9 items.
Look into the Presets/Scripts folder. There should be around 20 items
If you are not seeing the above, you have a busted installation. How it
is getting busted is a mystery to me. If you are running multiple versions
of PS, uninstall all versions before trying a reinstall. I'm having slight issues
with PSCS5.5 and PSCS5 on the same system which is causing me
BTW, this is definitely not a Scripting problem. You should definitely be in
Everything you mentioned is in place. I talked to Adobe again this morning.
from working as well as the presets. They are having me take a bunch of
screen shots and they are going to provide them to their senior engineers.
My guess is that something went funky went I installed some demo versions of
Nik software. All of that program and all the preferences to them have been
removed as well. Still, no progress. I'll try that other forum as well.
Thanks for your help.
It seems the problem stemmed from my renaming my hard drives a few weeks ago as I was reorganizing my data. I named my primary drive Apps/Data ...
Adobe had put out this advisory a few months ago. When I asked the senior support tech why no one down the line, in the seven hours I spent talking to support knew about this, he said it was because most people do not rename their hard drive. There are 4 solutions offered, it was the very first one that solved the problem.
Errors occur when using scripts such as Merge to HDR Pro and Image Processor | Bridge CS5 and Photoshop CS5
Solution 1: Make sure that the hard disk on which Photoshop CS5 is installed does not have the name of a folder that is specific to operating system functionality, such as "Applications" or "Users." Rename hard disk to a non-conflicting name.

That posting was close. It seems that the problem was I renamed my OS drive
a few weeks ago as I was reorganizing my stuff and had "apps" in the
description. Adobe finally told me that screwed up the program. It turns out
this is a known issue at the higher levels of tech support. Thanks for
forwarding that link, it was that info that got Adobe to the right
No problem Im glad you have it resolved… People just c&p all sorts of 'error' strings and a straight forward search along with a 'keyword' or two on some of these can save a lot of IT time. I've searched Console's crash logs before now and found matches and solutions in almost no time… Very few problems are unique…
I tried the google route, I guess I just didn't phrase it succinctly.
Interestingly enough, I did a search on Adobe's site and came up empty as
well. Yet the title of the document I finally got from tech support had a
string in it that should have flagged it. In any case, my nightmare is over
and your help was greatly appreciated.
