Lightroom: Relative Develop Presets would save the day!

Lightroom--I would love to see relative presets as opposed to only absolute presets. For example, I may want to add +10 of yellow in Temperature to what ever setting exists and not a static number.

This would be great for white balancing where pleasing color is preferable over accurate color. I may want to white balance a set of pictures and add +10 of yellow to warm things up.

I find a lot of presets aren’t useful in my workflow, but a relative color temp/tint would be.

Thanks,

Reid

I know this request is old, but I'd still love to see this feature realized!

Eight years later and this feature is still desperately desired.

So sad our simple request fallen on dead ears all these years. What's the best alternative plug-in right now for this?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Make relative adjustments to multiple images.

Many images in a set may all have different adjustments for contrast, exposure, temperature, etc.

I would like to then be able to say e.g. "Add +0.1 exposure" to one or more selected images. So it will take whatever the current value is for each image, and add the relative adjustment.

This is useful if, for instance, initial edits have normalised the photos (e.g. made them all look consistently exposed), but then I realise actually I want them all to be a bit more exposed. Or, for instance, we can start by normalising white balance to neutral, and then decide that we want to colour the whole set of images slightly more warmly.

for now, you can get around this by adding an offscreen gradient layer and adding your changes there. Then sync local across your images. It's really unintuitive, but until Adobe decides to finally implement this as a feature, it's all we have.

Nine years and counting, hence why I keep saying presets are snake oil... and Matt Kloskowski still keeps pushing his collection for sale.
