  • JM

    I still don’t understand why Adobe doesn’t automatically port the presets and plug-ins from the 2015 to the 2017 Photoshop folders during the install of the new app. Having to locate, then “authenticate” each transfer is absurd.

    • Some people still use older versions of PS even after upgrading. Also, the plugins aren’t always compatible. But its still worth you posting this as a feature request on Adobe forums. They do listen to FRs

  • Good to know! I’ll keep this in mind when I update. Thanks, Colin!

  • This is helpful! I’ve done, Already. Thanks Colin, Thanks so much!

  • Not yet update my Photoshop. After watching your tutorial, really thinking about updating my machine. Looking very easy to me.

  • Not yet update my Photoshop because I was not sure installed plugins will remain or not. After watching your tutorial, really thinking about updating my machine. Looking very easy to me.
