Photoshop 6? That doesn't even run on modern OSes.

Are you talking about Photoshop CS6?
If so, which OS version are you using?

OS 10.7.4. I have Lion, it turns out that Apple hid all the preferences and you need a special command to get to them. Thank you for your help!

Yes, Apple hid your Library folder, and you have to use a command line command to expose it, or use the "Go to Folder" command in the Finder to get to that folder.

Why they hid a folder that you constantly need to modify with fonts, profiles and preferences - I have no idea.

That's right! I don't know why they did it either. If you put a plist in the trash it regenerates it's self the next time you open the application.
