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..

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.

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.

There are about a billion little ways to tweak LR to the users way of working including options and presets of all types.
Many of these can be exported and imported piece by peice in different dialogues.

What would really save a lot of work is:

a) export/import (actually meaning copy) option to copy all my settings and templates and presets from one "old" LR database to a freshly created one

b) export absolutely all settings/Templates/Presets via a single action into a folder of my desire to be able to import these later on - typical usecase is a new or second computer where I reinstall LR later and dont want to start from scratch with all the personal tweaks I have created.

Sync Settings is now one of the features of Photoshop CC, and other Creative Cloud programs, proof that the team listens to our feedback.

Sync users Presets, Actions, Scripts to Creative Cloud..


With Creative Cloud, Adobe apps should be able to sync the users Presets, Actions, Scripts etc..
This is a function that would make it an awesome "Cloud" connected app.

Thanks

My workaround:
Cobian Backup is running everyday task which uploads settings into my FTP storage
You need something about 1 hour to set backup if you already know Cobian. Now I can only make automated backup. Next I will try figure out both-way syncing. http://www.cobiansoft.com/cobianbackup.htm

All apps within CC should have cloud synchronized presets and preferences. It doesn't make any sense to have all this stuff local nowadays. We have the ability to save most things in the libraries but the library ux itself is very clunky and time consuming. I work in the studio and at home and having to constantly save my assets onto a separate cloud service just so I have access to it at the other location is total nonsense.

The workspace profiles should just be an all encompassing profile that syncs all of your preferences, presets, actions (everything!) to your CC. That way when you log in from another location, everything is the same. This obviously needs to account for differences in mac/pc ui.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop: Document size presets should sync in creative cloud.

I just spent a few hours creating about 40 document size presets in photoshop.  I've been on with Adobe help and they cannot tell me how to sync these saved doc presets with creative cloud so that I can use them on my desktop.  In fact they can't even tell me where they reside so I can copy them and move them over manually.  I switch between my laptop and desktop all the time.  It does not make sense that creative cloud syncs EVERY preset except for this.  I will be spending the remainder of the day recreating all of these doc size presets on my desktop machine.  And I have a bout 150 more to create... TWICE.  Would love to see this be something that syncs in the future.  Your help people spent almost an hour trying to figure it out.  Finally they said... we did the best we could to help you.  That they did, but dang.
