    Organizing adjustment brushes?

    media kat Level 1

      What is the best way to organize adjustment brushes? Just name them based on something relevant? Is there some way to group them in a folder like system?

       

      Thanks.

          1. Folders are not possible. The Brush presets only exist in one long list.

          2. Name them with a description of the effect.

          3. After the default brushes, the rest sort alphabetically (ie. Numeric/Alphabetic).  So if you rename brush presets with numbers you can force the sort into some semblance of a sort order. An 'Empty' brush preset can be used as a 'Group' dividing line.

           

          eg.

          00  ----------------------

          00.1 Exposure + 0.5

          00.2 Exposure +1

          01 -----------------------

          01.1 Clarity +20

          01.2 Clarity +40

          02 ----------------------

          02.1 Saturation -20

          02.2 Saturation +20

          02.3 Sky Saturate +10

            What is an 'Empty' brush preset and how do you make one?

             

            Thanks.

              'Empty' is just my own terminology for a preset that does nothing- all the sliders set to default [0] . They would work as a brush 'Reset'

              They are there purely for a visual division between brush preset groups. To divide up a long list of presets- they do make the list longer though

              Created exactly the same as all other user brush presets- set the sliders to '0', drop-menu > Save current settings as new preset

              You could use group names like- 00-----Color, 03-----Retouch, 05-----Detail, etc. They need to use the numeric name to sort in place.
