How to create your custom preset

The preset feature in Adobe Lightroom lets you apply several changes just within a click to several photos at once. Photographers create their presets and share them on the internet for other photographers, so that they can learn from each other. Wouldn’t it be cool if you know how to create your custom preset?

Following are the steps that will enable you to create your develop presets:

1) Open the photo

You need to open the photo to apply the effects in the Develop module. Choose whatever photo you want, just make sure that the photo is colorful on which changes can be spotted easily.

2) Apply filters and make changes

Now, apply whatever changes you want to apply to your photo. Remember that these changes are going to be saved in your new preset. You can later choose which of the changes you want to include in your preset.

3) Create new preset

In order to create a new preset, go to the Develop Preset panel (on the left side) and click the Create New Preset icon (+). This brings up the New Develop Preset window. Give the Preset a name and select a folder to save it in (User Presets is a good one). Click the Check All button or select changes manually and press Create when you are ready to save the Preset.

 

4) Apply Develop preset upon import

To apply the Develop Preset you just created, launch the Import Window and go to the Apply During Import panel. Set Develop Settings to the the preset that you’ve created. This is where creating several presets helps saves time, as you can pick the most appropriate one for the photos you are importing. When you click the Import button Lightroom applies the settings in the selected preset, and renders a preview that includes those settings.
