Presets Migration

You can migrate presets and some settings from Photoshop CS6 to Photoshop CC, or you can copy them to another computer. Preset options are available when you launch Photoshop CC for the first time, and thereafter by choosing Edit > Presets from within Photoshop.

When you launch Photoshop for the first time, the Preset Manager appears. It offers to migrate all the presets listed below from Photoshop CS6 (or the most recent version of Photoshop you have installed). If you want to perform this migration after first launch, choose Edit > Presets > Migrate Presets.

Several changes were made from Photoshop CS6 as to how presets are migrated:

  • The Preset Migration dialog box that appears at first launch of Photoshop CC does not appear again after you reset preferences by using Shift+Ctrl+Alt (Windows) or Shift+Opt+Cmd (Mac OS). To migrate after first launch, choose Edit > Presets > Migrate Presets in Photoshop.
  • It’s no longer necessary to restart Photoshop after you migrate your presets.
  • Presets are migrated from the latest version installed before Photoshop CC, going back to Photoshop CS3. To migrate from multiple versions of Photoshop, migrate presets from one version of Photoshop at time.

The presets you can migrate are:

  • Actions
  • Black and White (Adjustment)
