Photoshop: Provide preference and preset syncing via the cloud! (Settings, Brushes, Actions, Tools, Workspaces, etc)

We need this in Photoshop:Save and sync brushes, actions and assets to the cloud!If i then log in to another computer (at my work..what ever) all my tools, patterns and so on are in sync.ps: could also be the workspace..

I'd be happy with preset saving and loading, rather than full syncing. Syncing is often a very difficult problem to solve, but wouldn't have much benefit over saving and loading for me (or maybe saving, loading, sharing).

I would definitely want BOTH! It wouldn't be a problem to implement both. Just as you for sure want to be able to do it without synching there are those (a lot) that for sure want synching.

I would not be at all happy with simply saving and loading. That's already easily accomplished using backup software and plugins. Syncing is not so easy and would definitely be a great addition!

loading and saving is a pain in the @$$ and time consuming. It should be simple. Hit a button, sync prefs...done.

I love LR - it's so much more"professional" than Aperture and certainly than iPhoto. The Apple WWDC conference announced iCloud with seamless integration to Apple products.

I doubt Cuppertino are working to integrate with LR (they want to sell their stuff).

Here's a way out there thought.

Could LR create (by export or ideally, in parallel) a "fake" iPhoto l;ibrary to provide full integration with Apple services. iCloud would then give LR full integration with with all Apples iThings: phones pads, pods et al.

Wouldn't that be cool?

I hope this idea will be applied to all Adobe apps. Every time I have to install Dreamweaver I have to import my sites and shortcuts for Illustrator and so on. Would love it if I could just sign in and my settings would be downloaded to any computer. Please make it happen!

Also make it exportable to USB for when cloud is unavailable.

This is a great idea! Using our Adobe IDs would be a great way to sync/store certain elements of our Adobe products together. Extra storage space could be included when users buy the 'Extended' version of Photoshop.

my bridge has stopped working in cs5, just says building criteria, after months of working fine. Reinstalled but forgot to copy my own actions etc

can you add a script / reminder to copy actions etc before uninstall finishes and it copies them to a desktop folder.

my bridge is still not working, ah well an entire day wasted and zero info anywhere on your website-cracking stuff adobe.

Absolutely. Probably the smartest thing that Adobe didn't come up with. Adobe Preferences being live/synced in a cloud that you can call up at other studios or computers- awesome. Adobe should hire the guy who thought of this, you need him. :P

Yes this is an absolutely great idea. Needs to be secure and password protected though.

To take syncing even a step further for companies like retouching houses, the Wacom intuos 4 tablet can recognize individual styluses. Can you add an option with the syncing mechanism to load prefs by stylus so any computer an operator sits at with their stylus, photoshop will recognize them and load accordingly.

Dear Adobe Gripe #16507

"Why don't you implement backup/export preferences/profiles?"

The entire Photoshop Preference set just got a lot bigger, which won't help. From CS4 to CS5 I mean. Not sure why this is the case, but stored patterns seem to be stored a lot less efficiently. And there are increases in the sizes of other files within the preference set also. transferring some of his data over the cloud is going to be a cludge if the team don't keep an eye on this.

Patterns are stored like a set of images, including compression -- but patterns are pixel data and some will compress better than others.

Thought I had the same pattern set in Photoshop CS4 and CS5, I'll check

it doesn't matter. If the team finds issues with this, it will only exploit how inefficient the program really is. Its bloated and spinning out of control.

Yes! This would help! Every time I try and use a new computer (and it happens a lot in my line of work) I loose at least a half an hour trying to get all the preferences and such in the right place.
It did get better with workspaces.
And don't forget brush presets! I use them all the time... Same thing for Ai and Indesign, preferably all at once.

I am very disappointed to find that creative cloud would not sync Photoshop settings for tools, actions, and keyboard shoat cuts automatically across all computers that I am using. I also used Creative Cloud for place to save my Photoshop Actions but I can't even download folders not to use the Cloud for place to load all my Actions. Plus, Photoshop need a feature to be able to search Actions.
