I really like this. I've moved over to keeping my Adobe presets in my dropbox account, but it would be great to see this implemented through CS Live.

this would be great - especally if you could choose which service you'd like to use. i know Adobe would need to include CS live but dropbox definetly has to be there as well.

I'd really love this. Good suggestion.

A fair amount of work, but would be handy for those with more than one computer they work from. (If it counts, I'm another Dropbox user, but would also be happy if this was a Photoshop.com thing, or similar.)

If adobe made this as a AIR app inside PS it can not be such a big deal can it? :)

It would be nice with a quick share function to share your assets, workspaces or what ever with friends and colleges - With a nice easy to use load, save, sync and export feature.

It will be great if there is a button to sync all in Photoshop between computers.

A long term frustration with many programmes like Photoshop, Lightroom Premiere, where your customised workspace and presets are so important to how you work, is the inability to simply export/import your preferences.
DIrectory Opus [an amazingly customisable programme] makes this very easy with a simply export and import facility. And for a few versions now, Opera the browser has been able to sync your browsers on various computers with your setting without you having to even do anything other than first set up the programme and sign in on different machines.
This implementation by Opera, would be a particularly useful tool for those who often need to do work on other people's computers as you could simply sign in using your Adobe LogIn and then get all your shortcuts and layouts that you are used to and then rest to previous setting when you log out.
I know I can sometimes get stumped when using other people's software at times as I have no idea where to find things with the standard layout and my shortcuts removed.

This could also back up your actions, brushes, presets etc.
And would also make testing of updates/betas a lot easier too

AJP Lawrence, I merged your topic with this one, seems it is very similar in nature.
I will just post a link to an useful script, that is somehow related: the migration assistant: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/860/cpsid_86... It will not move prefs from one version to the other, as they change between versions, but a good scripter might use it as a starting point to export Ps's presets...

Export/Import Preferences and Workspaces in Photoshop. I can save and load just about everything in Photoshop, and do since I work in a multi-computer envrionment. Not these two critical ones. Please let that happen!

@ PECourtjoie - I recall looking at scripts a while back, but IIRC it was more hassle than simply manually locating and copying the various folders.

Also note my request is for all CS products, LR and Elements, not just PS. This could even be something handled by Bridge if using CS to do all your programmes in one fell swoop, just as it handle Colour Management for CS.

I've been requesting this for a very long time, so am pleased to see it is being considered at least.

I don't care if this saves to the cloud, I'd prefer a local save - but the idea is great. We need to be able to export and install Actions, Scripts, Workspaces, Presets, Preferences, Color Settings, Automations, and Configurator Panels in an easy way. These are all great features in PS, but when one uses multiple features, they become a pain to gather, then to install all in the right places.

For local saving of Lightroom preferences, presets, etc. check out TPG LR Backup from Matt Dawson. It's brilliant and can be set to work automatically :

re: not being able to provide security w/ 3rd parties (dropbox) I dont use Lightroom much anymore but I remember a big advertised feature was flickr and facebook upload built in. So i think dropbox settings sync should be possible

I really like this idea too!
But I hope Adobe doesn't charge a ridiculous amount for the cloud service. If they do I simply won't use it, times are tough. Cover the cost but please give us a decent value and don't try to get rich off a nice feature to compliment the software.
