Preset selection in "Adjustments"


Recommended Posts

Are you aware of the Adjustment Panel/Presets Thumbnails? When you add a preset to an adjustment, this is where they go. If you don't see the Adjustment Panel, go to View>Studio>Adjustment. The default location is to the left of the Layers Panel

Yes I am aware of the adjustments panel because that is how I select my presets currently 😅 but it would be quicker if they had a drop down menu next to the add button.

But if you were to use the adjustment panel to add your new adjustment you can actually see the effect the preset would have, which you wouldn't from a pull-down such as you have suggested :)

Two thumbs up for including relevant presets in their associated panels. I suggested this quite a while back, but it never gained any significant traction. The way to answer Walt’s concern, obviously (to me, at least), is to include the previews in the list of presets - not just as a drop-down menu. I included a mock-up, which I have also shown below.
