I have about 10 presets I use very often for different types of pictures. They are quite different so I don't want to apply them to all pictures upon import. Instead of having to click on each preset, I'd like to be able to assign each preset a keyboard shortcut.

Allow 5 to 10 presets to be assigned to a keystroke. You make a menu to pick the few you want and assign to your preset keystroke options.

Yes, shortcuts would be very nice.

I created workaround with LUA-script and programmable keyboard (example game keyboard).

I work with a list of different presets for wedding pictures and i miss the option to highlight a bunch pictures and click on the preset for all pictures.

An option for preset shortcuts. So you can go thru the pictures with the arrow keys and assign with the shortcuts the presets.

It would be amazing if I could assign custom buttons and icons for presets and profiles using elgato stream deck directly. That way I could have a sunset icon for my sunset presets etc. A blue hour icon for my blue hour preset. Just push icon and have the preset applied. As well as other keys and features. Currently I think I can only do that via UI scripting but this is cumbersome it would be great if I could directly apply a specific preset via keyboard short cut etc. It would speed up retouching tremendously.

The MIDI2LR plugin lets you assign shortcuts to presets, but I don't know if it works with the Elgato Stream Deck.
