Apply presets without the need to press "done" afterwards

I have custom presets that I apply to most my pictures. Since I need to do this individually by picture, the need to press "done" before swiping to the next picture is a pain in the flow. On Desktop, the additional "done" button is not needed.
Alternative: Multi-select and apply the preset would work for me. But unfortunately is also not available

On the desktop, you can hover your cursor over a preset and see the effect. That means that clicking on it can apply the effect, so a 'Done' button is not necessary. On the iPad there is no hover function, so you will have to tap a preset to see what it does. That means you need something else to actually apply it, otherwise you would constantly apply presets by mistake. That's why that 'Done' button is needed.

Well, if you change exposure, contrast or any other setting on the iPad, this is applied without any preview and done button - you can swipe to the next pic immediately. And if you don‘t like your edit, you can revert it. Mobile needs to be about convenience.

There is a big difference between a single slider that does something that is totally predictable, and a preset. Some people have dozens or even hundreds of presets, so they need a way to see what a preset does without applying it. What you suggest is that they'll have to tap 'undo' dozens of times, instead of having to tap 'Done' only once.

Like you said: it's about convenience and apparently Adobe felt that this is the most convenient way. I would agree, you don't.
