If you spend a lot of time editing images, then you’ve probably run into a situation where you need to apply the same curve adjustment to more than one image. Photoshop comes with a host of curve presets-but you can also save your own custom curve settings to reuse again on other images.
To create a custom curve setting:
- Make any Curve adjustments necessary for your image.
- Click on the Preset Options button at the top of the Curves dialog box and select Save Preset from the pop-up menu, as shown in Figure A.
- Enter a name in the Save As text box, keeping the default .acv extension. Photoshop defaults to saving the curves in the Curves folder inside the Photoshop application folder.
- Click Save. Your preset now appears in the Curves preset pop-up menu.
