This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Relative Develop Presets would save the day!


My name is Vicente Alfonso, professional photographer from Spain.

I ́m a Lightroom user since LR2.

Well, I would like an option in wich I can add an adjustements sum not copy from others. I ́ll try to explain:

When I ́m going to send a copy to the laboratory for print, I need to do same changes in all my photos, 5+ more red, 10+ more yellow, because of copy shows in paper the same colors than the monitor.

In lightroom you can only copy the same adjustments than the other photo or preset, you can ́t add a sum and create a prest with that.

For example: I would like a preset in wich colors option, adds 5 more red, 3 more green... etc. If I have a photo with +30 yellow, the presets would give me 35 in total. But now, If I do a copy from an adjusment from other photo or a preset, the preset give me a total number not a sum.

I hope you can understand that I ́m trying to say. My english is not good.

Development presets is what you are asking for and it is a superb idea and one that people have been asking for since LR3 came out.

It would be so useful to be able to do and I agree, this really should be implemented

Good suggestion

The OP is asking for relative presets (as opposed to absolute presets). This feature request has been made before and this request should be merged with it.
