I’m undecided

Photoshop: How do I copy actions and presets I created on one computer and install it on another?

I need to know how to copy actions I created on one computer and install it on another.

I found the /Actions folder inside the Photoshop application folder, but only the default actions were there, not the ones I recorded.

    User saved presets are located here:

    Mac: Users/[Username]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets/[feature name]

    Windows 7 and Visata: Users/[Username]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets/[feature name]

    Windows XP: Documents and Settings/[Username]/Application Data/Adobe Photoshop CS5/Presets/[feature name]

    Alternately, if you just need to move one preset, you can select the item you want to move and save it out and load it. For example, select an action in the Action panel and choose "Save Action..." from the panel menu. After you've saved the file, you can load it by simply dragging the action you just saved on to the Photoshop application icon in the Finder or Windows OS.

    If you're just trying to move them from Photoshop CS4 to Photoshop CS5, there is a migration script that can help you with the process:
