I saw this mentioned in a newsletter I get. Supposedly, after you tell it where to look, it will display your Adobe Presets, styles, shapes, brushes, etc., whether they are loaded in Photoshop or not, and on any drive. It's only $25.00 or so which would be well worth it if it did what it says it does. It's by a company called TumaSoft, nobody I've heard of.

Thanks,

Laylajean

    If there's a cure for this, I don't want it!

That looks kind of interesting - but I don't know anything about it.

Currently I put the marketing image of my brushes, styles, and actions in my folder system and have them appropriately named. I organize my folder system with Picasa - so it just takes a quick search term to pull them all up. But that doesn't include the ones that are preinstalled in PSE - but I rarely use those anyway.

Haven't heard of it, though it would be a nice feature to have. Keep us posted if you get it!

Well, I got it. At that price, it was worth a shot. So far, I've been very pleased with it. I set it up to see the files installed in PS and all my other ones installed on my EHD. It found them all. Even the ones in subfolders. It has 3 views, small, large, and extra large. It won't load anything in PS, but that's okay. I'm just very happy to see everything. Among the styles, there have been a couple of files, it's called unviewable although I don't know why; I see them just fine in PS. None that were SG, though. <g>

There does seem to be some graininess(?) which makes me think the color palette is small. I wouldn't consider it a big issue since you're just finding things not editing them. I think you might be able to change that, though.

From the user guide, these are the file extensions, it will find.

One of the first things you want to do is set up your preferences. By default, Preset Viewer will search all available drives for the following file types:

Image Files: .bmp, .dib, .jp1, .jp2, .jpg, .png
Adobe: .abr, .acb, .aco, .act, .ase, .asl, .csh, .pat, .psd
Jasc: .jbr

Here's a link if you want to check it out.
