Please add customizable presets to blend ranges. I use them a lot, e.g. to protect highlights while sharpening the image or in order to restrict noise reduction to dark areas of the image. This means I have to set the same "curve" for blend ranges over and over again with no way to save my settings for further use with other layers and in other images.

If you File > Place an image rather than directly opening it, it will remain an image layer in the Layers panel.

You can add Blend ranges, other adjustment etc and once done hit the Replace Image button and all those settings are applied to the replacement image(s)

Not sure of your workflow but the above may be useful as long as none of the "adjustments" you need to do force an automatic rasterisation of the image layer


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

This does not help me as I use blend ranges for adjustment layers and live filters.

Have a look, if you like, at a set of Luminosity Masks for Adjustments & Filters (link below). This may solve your problem. Instead of creating a Preset for each specific Blend Options curve, record it as a 1-step macro. Use the "Underlying Layer" side of the Blend Options graphs, and this takes its cues from the layers underneath the adjustment/filter that need masking. Of course, these are luminosity masks – you obviously have other, more personal and specific curves that you use. I offer the macros below as an example.

Thanks for your input. I know that there are ways to workaround the issue. But most of them involve almost as many clicks as simply setting the curves (my curves are not too complicated). I just wish there was a way to save my curves so I could use them whenever appropriate.
