Develop presets is extensively made locally and downloaded from all over the web, But it can be very diffycult to figure out witch areas of the develop-panel that a preset actually will effect.

Therefore, it will be a great help if Lightroom can show which parts of the develop-panel that will be affected when the user have pinpointed a preset.

With a little effort you can see what is in a preset.

- Open the Lightroom preferences dialog
- Select presets and then "Show Lightroom Presets Folder..."
- Select Develop presets
- Select User Presets
- Select the preset and open in a text editor.

It should look something like this:

s = {
id = "59390847-18AD-4FFC-ADA5-390A55559475",
internalName = "D800",
title = "D800",
type = "Develop",
value = {
settings = {
AutoLateralCA = 1,
BlueHue = 0,
BlueSaturation = 0,
CameraProfile = "Camera Neutral",
ChromaticAberrationB = 0,
ChromaticAberrationR = 0,
ColorNoiseReduction = 25,
ColorNoiseReductionDetail = 50,
ColorNoiseReductionSmoothness = 50,
Defringe = 0,
DefringeGreenAmount = 0,
DefringeGreenHueHi = 60,
DefringeGreenHueLo = 40,
DefringePurpleAmount = 0,
DefringePurpleHueHi = 70,
DefringePurpleHueLo = 30,
EnableCalibration = true,
EnableDetail = true,
EnableLensCorrections = true,
GreenHue = 0,
GreenSaturation = 0,
LuminanceNoiseReductionContrast = 0,
LuminanceNoiseReductionDetail = 50,
LuminanceSmoothing = 12,
ProcessVersion = "6.7",
RedHue = 0,
RedSaturation = 0,
ShadowTint = 0,
SharpenDetail = 100,
SharpenEdgeMasking = 16,
SharpenRadius = 0.8,
Sharpness = 32,
},
uuid = "05002E53-336D-4147-8F0D-E00410CB03D3",
},
version = 0,
}

I know, but this solution will never be user friendly. Lightroom needs to quickly gives you an overview of the settings affected as illustrated.

I believe Lightroom should by default set the relevant options when creating or updating a Preset.
1) When creating a Preset, Lightroom would mark only the associated Options that have the sliders changed.
2) When updating, it would only mark the options that was originally selected by the user - and the user could mark or unmark other options if needed.
