Adobe Photoshop CS2/CS3/CS4/CS5

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


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:

1.   Make any Curve adjustments necessary for your image.

2.   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.

3.   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.
