Can I somehow export/backup my Adobe Photoshop settings?

All the stuff in Edit -> Preferences

Depends on your system, depends on your version of Photoshop.

Say you're on Windows and using Photoshop CS3.

Head yourself to this location:

C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Adobe Photoshop CS3 Settings

But if you're on a Mac:

Computer/Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS3 Settings

Copy all the contents of that folder and that's all your preferences. Next time you re-install, just drop these files back into the same position.

Tweak as necessary for your setup.
