The software was designed to transfer all the user presets. Some customers have reported the user presets are not appearing after updating to the current software.
Here are the instructions to manually move your presets from version 2.5 into the new version 2.6.
Macintosh preset location:
- Go To: Macintosh HDUsers<Active User>LibraryApplication SupportonOne SoftwarePhotoTools 2.5Stack Presets
- Locate the user created category or to the folder where you saved the presets.
- Next, you can either copy your custom category into the 2.6 folder or copy individual presets into the same folder in the 2.6 folder.
- Example: You created PhotoTools 2.5 preset called “My Amazing Preset” and you decided to save it in the onOne Presets category. You will need to move “My Amazing Preset.pto” from the onOne Preset folder in the 2.5 folder to the onOne Preset folder in 2.6.

- You can use the same instructions as the Mac (see example above): Copy the entire custom category folders into the 2.6 Stack Presets folder
- Individually created presets in one of the default categories can be moved into the associated 2.6 folder.

This can be a result of an out-dated video driver. You will want to double check your video card manufacturer in the Device Manager and then go directly to their site to download and install the latest video driver. An example would be if you have an EVGA 7200GS 256MB PCI-E video card. EVGA is using an Nvidia chipset, so you would want to go to the Nvidia website to get the latest driver available.
PhotoTools 2 can process any ﬁle-format that Photoshop can open including raw. It supports 8 and 16 bit RGB image modes, the most common modes used by photographers. PhotoTools 2 is limited to RGB images to support many of the effects that do not work or would provide erratic results in other image modes.
