Creating Presets in ACDSee Pro 6

2013-09-04 00:03:35 GMT

Last week we talked about speeding up your workflow. Today, we’re going to go into more detail about one of the ways mentioned, Presets.

In Develop mode of ACDSee Pro 6 you can save your settings to apply the same adjustments to multiple images without having to repeat the changes each time. For example, if you always correct your images using the Contrast tool with the value of 25 and the midtones tool with the value of -8, you can save these settings as a preset and quickly apply them for future images.

You can create and access presets by clicking the develop settings button.

To create a preset from the top of the pane:



Use the develop settings button from the top-level to save all develop settings from Tune, Detail, Geometry, and Repair tabs. Presets created at this level can be accessed from Manage and View mode. In Manage mode, presets can be applied to multiple images at a time.

  1. Make corrections to your image in Develop mode.
  2. Click the develop settings button located at the top of the pane.
  3. Select Save Preset from the menu.
  4. In the Save Develop Settings Presets dialog, click Select All to save your settings, or select only the specific settings you want to save as a preset.
  5. Enter a name for your preset.
  6. Click OK.


To create a preset from a tab:



Use the develop settings button within a tab to save develop settings exclusively from the groups within that tab only. The example shown below shows the settings button to click to save develop settings from the Tune tab. A preset created in a tab can only be accessed through the same tab.

  1. In Develop mode, select the , or Repair tab.
  2. Make corrections to your image in the tab.
  3. Click the develop settings button on the top right of the tab.
  4. Select Save Preset from the menu.
  5. In the Save Develop Settings Presets dialog, enter a name for your preset.
  6. Click OK.



To create a preset from a group:



Use the develop settings button within a group to save develop settings exclusively from within that group only. The example on the left shows the settings button to click to save develop settings from the General group. A preset created in a group can only be accessed through the same group.

  1. In Develop mode, select the Tune, Detail, Geometry, or Repair tab.
  2. Select a group and make corrections to your image.
  3. Click the develop settings button located on the top right of the group.
  4. Select Save Preset from the menu.
  5. In the Save Develop Settings Presets dialog, enter a name for your preset.
  6. Click OK.
