Question by Messenger†: Can you install CS4 and Final Cut Pro on a computer with a legit license w/out the original install discs?
I am thinking about buying a macbook pro on ebay with Final Cut Studio and Adobe CS4 (master collection) already installed, however, because they said that they will not include the original install discs, I am worried that if I buy it now and then buy a new mac later, I will not be able to use CS4 or Final Cut on the new mac.

Yes, you can install any software as long as you have purchased license to it!

Question by Jinxess: Why can’t you install Adobe Photoshop CS4 on flash-based storage devices?
Does that mean you can’t install Adobe Photoshop CS4 on a solid state drive or do they only mean external flash-based storage devices?
Answer by DelusiveVision92
They only mean external storage devices.
The reason is because typically, when installed, some applications need to be able to write to the Windows registry or store its configuration files (such as an INI file) in the user’s profile. This cannot be done in external storage devices such as USB flash drive. Photoshop is one of those applications that write to the registry and store a lot of configuration files on your profile.
This is also what separate the portable applications from them. Portable apps are software programs that are able to run independently without the need to install files to the system it is running in.
Question by simpliines: How to install actions for photoshop cs4?
when i download an action, where do i save it to? i go to the “C” drive, find the photoshop file but i cant find an “actions” folder. help?
Answer by Jonas M. Rogne
If you download an action file (.atn) you can save it wherever you want (i suggest some folder where you collect your actions).
The easiest way to add them to the actions panel (Window->Actions) in Photoshop simply double-click the file and it will add itself (you will get no confirmation or dialog box, but it will show up in the list).
Question by Sam Merlotte: How to install photoshop cs4 without loosing .bmp in new files to create?
After installing photoshop i loose ability to create .bmp on desktop (Right mouse click > new > bmp).
why photoshop replace this and i want it back.
Answer by Nahum
This has more to do with your operating system than with Photoshop. PS does take ‘ownership’ of the BMP format, but you can return it to the OS.
If you’re on Windows 7, you have to make a registry change. This site has a file that can automate the change for you:
In Windows XP, you can add items to the C:\WINDOWS\System32\SHELLNEW folder. Copies of these will appear in the “New…” dialog.

Question by Reehanna: I cant install photoshop brushes on vista.?
Okay so i downloaded quite a few brushes for photoshop cs2 and i put them in the right folder but when i go on photoshop they dont show up can anyone help?
Answer by Mujer Alta
As long as they’re abr files and they’re in the right folder it doesn’t matter what the operating system is.
New brushes will usually appear at the end of the Brush Selector dropdown. Click on the Brush Tool, then in the Options Bar click on the Brush Selector and scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list.
If they’re not there, click on the load brushes icon (looks like a big arrowhead) and see if they’re listed there.
An easier way to keep your brushes handy and safe (especially if you ever have to uninstall and reinstall the program) is to keep your new brushes in a separate folder on the Desktop or somewhere easy to find. Then open Photoshop, go to File Locations (which is usually at the end of the Edit menu) and just tell the program where to find your brush folder.
Question by Riley: anyone know why i cant install photoshop cs4?
i’m trying to install the 30-day trial of photoshop cs4, but whenever i get to the setup it says that the operation failed because adobe drive couldnt install. what does this mean and what do i do?
Answer by Carling
installing demo’s is not a good idea because when you don’t buy after thirty days you have to un install it, and that can lead to problems if it is not un-installed right.
download Gimp for windows is is the same thing and it is free to download and use, it is a professional package the professional graphics designer use to create animation and 3D drawings with
Question by Erin R: How do you install fonts into Adobe Photoshop CS4 Only?
I don’t want to put the fonts into the C:\Windows\Fonts directory. I want them to only be used by Photoshop not all of windows. Thanks in advance!
Answer by Herbert
Copy the fonts to:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts
That way only Photoshop (and other Adobe apps) see them. If no Fonts folder exists, create one. You do not have to restart Photoshop.
If you are using the 64bit Windows version, put them in the same folder, not the “Program Files (x86)” one.
