Presets allow you to quickly add effects or combinations of effects with specific settings already applied, greatly speeding up your workflow and making it simple to apply the same settings to multiple images.

Applying presets

You can access your available presets through the Presets menu. Select any preset from the list to immediately apply it to the current layer.

  • Preset menu: Click this icon in the Effects header and select any preset from the list inside.
    • Save preset: Use the Save Preset command at the bottom of the list to create a new preset, containing all effects currently applied to the layer.


The preset menu to the right of the Effects header title contains presets made up of multiple effects. These presets can be beneficial for creating specific looks for your images, or for quickly adding specific combinations of effects to a layer for further adjustment.


The preset menu to the right of each individual effect’s name contains presets of specific settings for that effect.

Layer presets

Some layer types offer presets as well. These speed up your workflow by allowing you to have certain effects automatically applied to a layer as soon as it is created.

  • Image: Click the new image layer icon to access available presets for image layers.
  • Text: Click the new text layer icon to access available presets for text layers.
  • Adjustment: Click the new adjustment layer icon to access available presets for adjustment layers.

Export presets

Export presets are useful for accessing specific combinations of Output settings, in the Batch export controls.

  • New Output presets: Click the new output button and select a preset to create a new output item which includes preset export settings.
  • Output presets: Click the preset menu for any existing output item to view and select your available presets. Choose any preset to immediately apply its settings to the current output item.
    • Save preset: Use the Save Preset command at the bottom of the list to create a new export preset, containing all of the settings in the current output.
