Setting Up Your Tools with the Preset Palette

In the section in Chapter 3 called “Creating or Displaying a Brush,” you learned how to create and use your own custom brush in Photoshop. In addition to creating a custom brush, you can create a preset. To make a preset, you select a tool, choose your favorite settings for the tool, and then save the preset. The preset stores your favorite settings for the tool. Later, when you load the preset, the tool and specified settings immediately become active. This section describes how to create and use presets, as well as how to load additional brush, color, or pattern choices for your tools using the Preset Manager.

Saving a Preset

Because Photoshop offers so many tools and settings, you have nearly unlimited possibilities for editing images. Over time, however, you’ll probably develop favorite techniques that involve using a particular tool and particular settings. Rather than having to remember the desired tool and all the associated settings, you can simply save each favorite combination as a preset using the Tool Presets palette.
