Quick Tips

Moving Camera Raw Presets

Camera Raw 4.1 has a new Presets panel.  It lets you save popular or frequently used settings so you don't have to re-create them each time (say, for a black-and-white photo).  Here's the tip: If you ever change computers, you'll probably want to take those settings along with you. It's not quite as easy as you'd think though.  So here's how: First go find the presets folder. On a Mac, it's located in User:Library:Application Support: Adobe:CameraRaw:Settings.  On a PC, look in C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings. Then copy any of the preset XMP files in there to the same folder on the computer you want to move them to.  The next time you go into the Camera Raw dialog, you'll see your new presets in the Presets panel.
