Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Building import presets, part of Using Presets in Lightroom.
So far, we've been focusing on how you can create presets for file renaming and for…metadata that you can include as settings here in the Import window when you're…bringing photos into Lightroom. But there's even a bigger way to use…presets when you're importing, and that is to set up all of your import settings and…then save that whole group of settings as a preset that you can quickly apply to…other photos in the future. To show you that, with a memory card…attached to my computer, I've clicked the Import button to open this Import window…and I'm going to quickly chose some settings and then save those as an Import preset.…
Now what I chose over here on the left will not be included in the preset, this…is the source of the photos, which is the card attached to my computer, this device…called No Name. And I'm also going to uncheck some of…these files because I don't want to import them all, we would just take too long…right now. So I'll click Uncheck All and I'm just…going to check a few of these photos to import.…
