Comparing the effect of different presets is awkward and the examples in the selector screen are small. These are the steps: Click “Preset” < Select a preset < view effect of preset on image < remember effect of preset on image < repeat for each preset.
A shortcut that would cycle through the presets, perhaps with an option to select only a particular group of presets. The cycling should be full screen.
(Don’t forget to add tags to specify the platform)
May I add that one can’t see what preset has been used. When I change the preset in preferences, this has no influence on the already existing images. Only on new images. A reset doesn’t change the used preset.
So before comparing I would like to know what has been used on that particular image.
Yes, that’s true. Sometimes I try out a preset, watch the result, go back to the presets to select the next one and so on. But I never can see, which one was the last used one and I always have to start at the beginning. It would be nice if I could return to the same position in the list of all presets and see the last used one (for this image) marked.
Thank you for mentioning my FilmPack presets. However, I believe this request is about modifying the entire Photolab preset preview process to make it more feature rich and user-friendly. You may be confusing the intent of this thread with a different recent one where someone asked about Filmpack presets.
