    Hi Guys,

    My Photoshop just experienced a fit and crashed big-time... and after a restart its asking me to re-activate but also its being really strange now (the gradient tool is playing up and a few other things)...

    does anyone know the location on the hard drive where all the important stuff like registration settings and kernels etc are stored so i can just use time machine to backtrack to before it went all mental so save me doing a reinstall or re-registering etc?

    Well, the user-specific prefs are stored in ~/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS3 Settings/

    It also puts a whole mess of files in /Library/Application Support/Adobe/ -- there are about a gig of shared CS3 files in there, but I'm going to guess that's also where it stores the registration info... you do only get that once per install, right?
