Changing Camera Raw Import Defaults

When I first open a Nikon raw file in Photoshop, it begins with the Camera Raw application. I'd like both checkboxes under Lens Corrections to be automatically selected, by default. I always use Adobe's lens corrections, and it's frustrating to have to switch to that pane and turn those options on every single time I open a camera raw file.

 

How do I save that setup as the default when opening raw files?

 

Thanks for any help.

I would make a preset that includes checking these profile boxes:

Then under Preferences > Camera Raw select the preset as below in Raw Defaults:

Moved to the Camera Raw forum, from the Photoshop forum.

Yes, that worked great.

 

I would add one additional step: When setting the Lens Corrections before saving, I had checked the Setup: Custom box rather than Setup: Auto, so the settings were saved for that particular lens, rather than for the lens used in each raw file I would open.
