Here is a quick 10-minute video I did to show you how to create develop presets. Develop Presets are helpful when you are importing images into Adobe Lightroom and you want to apply basic develop settings.
I use the develop preset so that the images will apply lens profiles, remove chromatic aberrations, apply some sharpening and some noise reduction — all designed to save me time as I usually go through and set these settings after I have imported my images. By creating the preset, I end up saving myself some significant time during post processing.
All of this is described in the video where I will walk you through the creation of the preset, then import some images to show you how to apply the preset in the import dialogue box.
If you have any questions about the Develop Preset or want to know more, please feel free to drop me a line!
