Hi,

I am sharing a computer with my collegue because we both work part-time.   He has created some batch processings for use with jpeg pictures.   The only problem is that when I want to use these batch processings I always have to log of my computer and log on with his account to be able to use them.   I there a way that I can export these settings from his account and import them into my user account ?   I've allready searched this forum and other forums, search files etc... but I can't figure it out.

Thanks in advance !

If this is a custom action from within the Action settings you can find it in the directory:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Presets\Photoshop Actions
asuming that is your directory

I will dig for more info and report it for you here shortly.

You may want to search the Photoshop directory if you haven't already for the name gien to the batch process. More than likely if it's a custom batch that you do often it's actually an Action.

Look in these places.

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Presets\Photoshop Actions

asuming that is your directory

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Plug-Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only

asuming that is your directory

Or here...
This is where the custom settings are stored for individual users.
C:\Documents and Settings\THE LOGIN NAME THAT HAS THE SETTING\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings

asuming that is your directory

Good Luck

The solution if that is the case.

When you are logged in using an Admnistrator rights account, copy the settings from your co-workers custom settings folder and paste them into your custom settings folder, make sure Photoshop is not running to avoid any conflicts or unwanted file permissioning errors.

Good Luck

Yes !!!    I've found the solution with the help of mrwebdev !!!

The batch was created using the Actions Menu but I didn't find the proper .atn file.    I've searched the user folders on the server I and managed to find it.   Then with the 'load actions'-command in the actions menu I've loaded the .atn-files and now when I go to File -> Automatic -> Batch I can choose the procedure that I want.

Thanks to all who have replied to my question to help me out !
