presets

This menu gives you an overview of the presets that are defined for darktable’s modules. In this dialog you can select whether a user-defined preset should be auto-applied to matching images. By pressing the “import” button at the bottom of the window you can import a saved preset.

Pre-defined presets (those that are included by default within darktable) are shown with a lock symbol. Their auto-apply properties cannot be changed.

Selecting a user-defined preset and pressing Enter or double-clicking on it will open an edit dialog. This allows the chosen preset to be edited, saved to an external .dtpreset file or deleted. Selecting a user-defined preset and pressing the Delete key will delete the preset.
