ok got the time to test and i find the clutter and distraction not that big if you switch all off.
For all see this video:link to clip
(my waving around with the mousepointer means “see no visual local tool lines”)
And to make this a partial preset to use see this clip as example
personally i think this is the most effective way to apply groups of corrections.
i have a “temp folder” in my presets which i can use as “project” store room for quick repair of many the same image’s. (as a temporaly group of corrections i want to use in a project of image’s)and as test folder. (so i know easy which to delete when ready. if i want to keep one i replace it to my "partial preset folder)
i made this before we are able to use this:
Now you can also use a Virtual Copy to store a certain level of correction and use that as source for selective pasting on different image’s
step 1 make your adjustments
step 2 create from that point a VC.
step 3 edit further on image 1
step 4 copy settings of VC and use selective paste to add your work on the next image.
step 5 edite further on image 2 . (adjust vc settings if needed)
selective pasting is much like a partial preset.
hope i helped.
