Lightroom: Revert Presets

It would be great to right click on a preset and revert that preset to the original settings. Often they are updated over, and going back to the main one, can be a life saver.

Yes you can just re-import but that can be cumbersome.

So you essentially want presets themselves to have some kind of versioning? Or perhaps a way to "lock" presets so you can't change them would avoid the issue?

First off,  fan of your website. thanks for all your help over the years. :-)

Kind of like we have with images. Settings>Reset. 

For instance I have some presets I purchased. Many come with some sort of grain. I am not a big fan of grain added in post. So I often remove the grain and add a new preset or update the main one. Sometime back, a new version of LR messed up a bunch of my presets. So I wish I could right click and say "Reset Preset" back to what it was imported as. 

I know its kind of minor, but would help me. Maybe others too! :-)

Thanks Benjamin!

Interesting idea. You might be better to save a new preset when you want to update, if you think you're going to go back.

If a new version of LR is messing up your presets, that's a whole other discussion we ought to be having.

I should have been careful when stating as such since I have can't recall when that occurred. Within the last year for sure.

I do typically add a "new preset" from the settings, but I still end up with odd issues. Being able to say, "OK let's start over." Would be helpful. I agree it's probably minor. Oh well... :-)

Even minor things are worth requesting - it might be the minor thing everyone else wants too. The voting system here works well for you.
