"Saving Defaults"


Olympia, US
          



I'm fairly new to Lightroom, however I have been able to set up some presets and so forth.

In a given set of photos, I may have basically the same sharpening parameters, so I would like to have it preset, so I do not have to keep entering the numbers for the sharpening level, detail, etc.

Is there a way to include the sharpening in any preset?

The easy, not-a-preset way is to adjust an image to your liking, edit>copy, select which settings
you want to copy (one, several, all) select other images (you can select one or several or all), then edit>paste.

The make-a-preset way means you'll collect lots of custom presets, as I am sure every batch will require
different amounts of sharpening, etc.

To create a preset:
1. make your edits in the right panel
2. click on the + sign in the left panel
3. select sharpening and any other setting you want included in your preset
4. name your preset
5, create it

You can also have a set of parameters designated as your default for all images taken with a certain camera. Those can include whatever your want, but common things to include in your default setting are sharpening and a color profile. Presuming you want to use this sharpening setting for the majority of your images, you don't need to include sharpening settings in your presets; your new default values will stay set. To create a default for a specific camera, start with an unedited image, go to the Develop module, adjust the sharpening values to whatever you want and any other parameters you want included in your default setting and then select Develop>Set Default Settings>Update to Current Settings. From this point on, those settings will be applied to all images made with that camera when you import them into Lightroom.

There are options you can set for how default settings are used within Lightroom if you want to get fancier. You can have them set by camera model (the default), serial number (if you have multiple camera bodies of the same model that are individually color-calibrated) and by ISO (if you want to apply differing sharpening and noise reduction automatically based on ISO). I tend to keep it simple and just do it based on the camera model.

I'll add one more method to the good advice you've been given. In the Develop module, select all the images in the filmstrip that you want to share settings with and use the 'Sync...' button to copy settings. Alternatively, toggle the button to 'AutoSync' and then any changes you make to an image will automatically be applied to all images selected in the filmstrip.

With a bit of selection discipline, LR can really speed your post-processing. Good luck!

Reminder - you will make mistakes while learning, use the undo feature to get back to where you were.

Thank, guys. Even more help than I could hope for. I will certainly avail myself of this info.

I already noticed with a couple of things I did to a filmstrip of images, how quickly I could make a change. For someone who was not interested in trying it because I already used and loved Photoshop, I have become a believer!
