Creating, Applying, Saving and Loading Presets in Adobe Camera Raw!

Adobe Camera Raw, while not known for its creative capabilities, holds a treasure trove of awesome preset possibilities.  (Say that 10 times fast!)  I was editing some pictures of my boys the other day when I noticed I was getting pretty creative in ACR with the effect.  I really liked it so I decided to save it and have a go with it on some other photos.  Of course, this led me on a Preset making rampage!

As I was creating these new Presets I discovered something pretty useful.  During the saving of the preset in ACR there are quite a few options that allow you to optimize the Preset for use on other images.  It can be pretty convoluted at first so I created a video tutorial.  Below are the time stamps for the topics covered:

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
