Do you have your favorite settings you like to use on most of the photos? It would be convenient to have them as a default setting, and in Lightroom it’s possible with quite simple commands. In this short video, you will learn how to create custom default settings in Lightroom. It’s easy as 1-2-3!
Benjamin Warde shows us in only 60 seconds how to apply our favorite setting(s) in Develop Module so they become default. He likes to always have “Remove Chromatic Aberration” applied. I often apply “Enable Profile Corrections”, so I chose that as my default.
When you choose the setting you want to set as a default, you just need to hold Alt key on PC or Option key or Mac. The “Reset” button will change to “Set Default”. Click that, and confirm it in the Confirmation dialog box, and that’s it. Now “Enable Profile Corrections” is my default setting.
The default settings are specific to each camera model. If you wanna get fancy, you can go to Preferences, then Presets tab, and make the Develop Module settings specific to individual camera serial number or to camera ISO settings.
