PortraitPro 15 comes pre-loaded with dozens of presets to help you create a wide variety of looks quickly and easily. These are perfect for quick touch-ups or beginner users, but what do you do if the default presets don’t suit your editing style or you’re ready to move into more advanced retouching?
What is a custom preset?
A custom preset is built using your own editing preferences and saved to the presets menu for easy access.
How do I create my own preset?
1. Open an image and edit it using the sliders of your choice.
2. Click ‘Save Preset’ at the top of the presets menu.
3. Choose a name for your preset and decide if you want to set it as the default for male, female or child subjects.
4. Click ‘Ok’ to store the preset.
How do I use custom presets?
Once saved, you can apply a custom preset by clicking on it in the presets menu, by selecting it as your default or by choosing it as the preset for your batch processing.
Do I have to use all of the sliders?
No, custom presets can be created using as many or as few sliders as you’d like. For example, you may want to create different makeup looks or lighting states that can then be applied to any image on top of the existing edits. Click ‘Select Sliders to Save’ to choose which sliders should be affected.
