- [Voiceover] Presets are great because they save us time. We don't have to keep entering the same information. over and over again. And when you use good tools like this, like presets, that's what makes this type of work a lot more fun, and therefore, we'll do more of it. And our images will have more data associated with them. So, it's all good. Right? Let's start with this image right here. What we're gonna do is we're gonna create a basic preset. So, we have some information here. So, I already have my name in here.
I'm gonna add a title. There we go. So, make sure you type correctly when you do this. Let's add All Rights Reserved down here. Good. And that's all we're gonna do right now. Now, we can add more stuff later on. In fact, we'll create a more detailed preset. Right now, I just want a basic one that has my name, my title, some urls here, my copyright and All Rights Reserved. All based on the information that we've entered for this image.
Now, to create a preset I go up here to the menu, and I do Save User Preset. Now, it's basing this preset upon the information in this image right here, number 576. Which is this guy right here. Actually, it's this gal right here. Now, in my preset do I want the rating? I don't. It's checked because I've added that metadata, but I don't want that as part of the preset. So, I'm gonna uncheck that.
And I'm gonna uncheck Color Tag too. Otherwise, every time I apply this preset, which what I'm shooting for is my name and my copyright. I would be overwriting the Rating and Color Tag or adding it. And I don't necessarily wanna do that. I do want Creator, however. So, we're gonna check that. I want the Creator Job Title. I want the Website. I want the Description. Let's go down here. And I want Copyright Notice and I want Usage Terms.
That's all I want. So, you have to double-check your work here because once I hit Save then this is how this preset is gonna be set up. So, I think we're good. So, I'm gonna go ahead and click on Save. Now, I get to give it a name. So, I'm gonna call this Dex Basic. By the way, Dex is a nickname I have had ever since I've been in this business. It was given to me by a coworker accidentally. And I like it cause it's short.
So, it's handy for things like this. And it's gonna put this preset in the metadata folder right here. Capture One Pro will pick the right place to put it. So, all you have to do is just leave it there, and don't mess it up. So, I think we're all set here. Just gonna click Save. And now we have our preset. And you'll notice if we go back, look at it, there it is right there. Now, if you made a mistake, you can delete the user preset up here.
We should be okay. Let's check our work. Let's go over to this photo right here. Which is a 4-star with no color tab. None of that information. So, let's apply the preset. So, apply Dex Basic. Stays 4-star, doesn't change the color tab, adds Photographer. And look at this, All Rights Reserved, copyright. Very nice. Let's try it again. See.
Dex Basic. Ta-da. Just like that. And if you decide that you don't want this preset, you can just go right back, and you can say Remove. And it just takes it away from this image. It doesn't eliminate the preset, it just eliminates it from the image that you have highlighted. We'll go ahead and leave it for now though. All right. So, that is our basic preset. Now, we're gonna create another preset in the next movie. And then I'm gonna talk about stacking them which is kinda fun too.
We got our feet wet. So, let's keep paddling along here.
In this course, photographer, author, and educator Derrick Story embarks on an in-depth exploration of Capture One Pro. The course structure mirrors the design of the software itself, with chapters that step through each of the tabs in Capture One Pro, from organizing to editing to refining to outputting images. Derrick investigates Capture One Pro's intuitive library structure, its robust editing tools, its tethered shooting mode for going directly from camera to computer, and its photo printing and sharing features, including options for creating web pages and slideshows straight from Capture One Pro. These tutorials are ideal for former Aperture users who are looking for a new photo editing application, as well as current Lightroom subscribers who are interested in Capture One Pro's more powerful import, color grading, and tethering features.
