Save Presets in Photoshop CS5

All tools in Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 5 allow you to save presets so that you can retrieve them from a list of presets. This is an example of saving a Brush tool preset, but the same method can be used for all other tools as well.

  1. Choose a brush size, color, softness, or any other characteristic.

  2. Click the Tool Preset Picker button on the left side of the Options bar.

  3. Click the triangle in the upper right corner to access the fly-out menu and then choose New Tool Preset.

    The New Tool Preset dialog box appears.

  4. Type a descriptive name in the Name text field and then click OK.

    Leave the Include Color check box selected if you want the preset to also remember the present color.

  5. Access the preset by clicking the tool’s Preset Picker button and choosing it from the tool’s Preset Picker list.

Each preset you create is specific to the tool it was created in, so you can have a crop preset and an eraser preset, for example. After you get in the habit of saving presets, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them.
