Adobe Lightroom Settings: Creating a Preset vs Copying/Pasting a Setting

I want to create some custom Lightroom Presets. The default images are getting old and boring to look at. Here’s a few things I found out.

  • Lightroom Presets don’t capture Local Adjustment settings, which are…
    • Crop Overlay
    • Spot Removal
    • Red Eye Removal
    • Adjustment Brush
    • with the exception of Graduated Filters, which it does capture.
  • If you Copy/Paste/Synchronize settings between photos, however (instead of applying a preset)
    you get the capability to transfer over additional settings!

    • Spot Removal
    • Crop (Straighten Angle, Aspect Ratio)
    • Adjustment Brush
    • Graduated Filters (again)

If you think about it, it makes sense. You don’t really want to capture “local adjustments” for “global” presets, especially with the red eye reduction tool, which has very specific size/location. For what I was trying to tweak Lightroom to do though… bummer.
