Applying presets

I'd like to spend a few minutes with another pop-up menu here in our Adjustments pane, the Presets pop-up menu. This is wonderful because Aperture gives you some very nice presets, and then you can create your own and save them and even share them with other people. So, for instance, looking at the shot right here, if I wanted to apply some Black & White presets, I could just go to Presets > Black & White, and I have the Red Filter. Now, these are back from the days when we shot film and we put these different filters over our images.

But now we can just mouse over these labels here, and we can actually see the effect of the preset applied. If I decided that I wanted to use one of these, I would just click on it, and then that preset would be applied. So, I just applied the Infrared Preset, which looks okay, but I sort of have a different view of infrared. So, maybe I want to create my own infrared look and then save that as a preset. So, I am going to go ahead and undo that...
