Backing up Styles and Transitions

Postby ShoeQueen » Tue Feb 14, 2017 12:31 pm

Good Day, All!

I'm a first time poster here, but have been lurking for about 6 months. I've enjoyed learning from you all!

Since I have begun to create custom slide and transitions I wanted to verify if I understand PSP's file structure for backing up my custom files.
I'm a little confused as to where everything is being stored.

I know I can backup the files from C:\ Program Files (x86) \ Proshow Producer \ Styles and C:\ Program Files (x86) \ Proshow Producer \ Transitions
But is that sufficient?
What if a style uses a custom mask? Where are those files located?

Thanks for your assistance,

Welcome to the forum !

You don't need to create any backup for the styles and transitions that are in the path that you mentioned above.
Those are the styles and transitions that are built-in, that come with the program. They are created when you install the program.

Customized styles and transitions are saved in this path: C:\ProgramData\Photodex\ProShow

Normally this is a hidden directory in Windows, and if you can't see this directory on your computer, then I suggest that you use ProShow's own function of Manage Effects > Styles (or Transitions) > Export.

Hello

I also created many transitions ans Styles.

What I have done is
  • create one folder for transitions where I export my own transitions
  • create one folder for styles where I export my own styles

In each of these 2 folders
  • create a sub folder called source
  • in those subfolder create one sub folder for each style or transition.
    In those sub folders, I keep the psh file and the elements used so to be able to modify easily the transition or the style or to create another variation of the style or transition

I off course save regularly those folders

Thank you both for clarifying!
I would hate to lose the items I created, and now I feel like I can back these up confidently! :D
