In PS open your swatches window, click the dropdown menu and click Load Swatch, when loaded the new colours should show there

nICE!

is there a way to save each aco in PS? can i do this automatically on import of a new aco?

I would like to not have the colors just loaded into a large list of other colors. would like to create custom collections.
