Description of the configuration options

  • Choose method: Relative
    • Relative
      • Value
        Relative + value will add the value of a setting in the preset to the current value of the photo.
        Sample:
        Photo Setting Current value Preset value
        New value
        Photo 1 Clarity 12 30 12 + 30 = 42
        Vibrance 16 25 16 + 25 = 41
      • Percentage
        Relative + percentage interprets the value of the setting in the preset as a percentage to be added to the current value of the photo.
        Photo Setting Current value Preset value
        New value
        Photo 1 Clarity 12 30 12 + (12 * 30%) = 15

        Vibrance 16 25 16 + (16 * 25%) = 20
    • Absolute
      Will apply the preset as Lightroom does, overwriting the current photos settings with the preset settings.
      Photo Setting Current value Preset value
      New value
      Photo 1 Clarity 12 30 30

      Vibrance 16 25 25
  • Factor
    All settings in the preset will be multiplied with this factor, regardless the mode it operates in.
    This option allows you to apply a preset stronger of softer.
  • Create Virtual copy (Lightroom 5 and above)
    Choosing this option determines whether the changed settings are applied to the selected photo(s) or if they are applied on a Virtual copy created beforehand.
    • Virtual copy name
      This text is added as the copy name in Lightroom, see your meta data.
  • Run in simulation mode
    Choosing this option will make the plug-in perform all the calculations and list these to the output, yet does NOT apply these settings to the photo. So the photos keeps untouched.
    This option allows you to inspect the consequences of applying a preset without changing the photo(s).
  • Check for invalid settings, see Known errors (2)
  • Inverse calculation when original value is negative.
    To clarify this feature see table below.
    Inverse calculation on/off Original value Preset New value
    Off (default) Exposure = 1.0 -0.2 0.8
    Exposre = -1.0 -0.2 -1.2
    On Exposure = 1.0 -0.2 0.8
    Exposure -1.0 -0.2 -0.8
  • Log settings
    All calculations are written to a local web page that can be read in any browser.
    This section determines the behavior the what is written to the log file and if it should automatically should be opened after the plug-in finishes.
    • Show log file upon finish
      If set, the plug-in will open your default browser with the log file after the plug-in has finished.
    • Show photo settings
      This setting determines whether the old and new photo settings are written to the log file
    • Show unchanged photo settings
      Default all photos settings are written to the log file. Unchecking this option will hide all photo settings that have not been changed by the plug-in, which makes the log compacter.
    • Show preset settings
      Default a listing of the preset settings is written at the start of the log file. Uncheck this option if you do not want the listing of the preset chosen.
  • Select the Views that work properly (only when working with Virtual copies)
    See Known errors
    Check all the Views that work properly when creating a Virtual copy!
