Duotone grouping

Is there anyway to group sets of Duotone presets? More particularly, a group of home-made Duotones. This to avoid hunting through the long alphabetical list.

Thanks

I don’t think so. 

 

Hitting the initial letters quickly should move the focus to the first match in the dropdown menu.

Derived from your kind answer, I stuck the letter Z in front of each one so they now appear as a neat group at the bottom:-)

Hello; thanks for the response. That would appear to be the only way to narrow things down. Seems somewhat of a lack in the Photoshop scheme of things.

Thanks again.

Let me be blunt: 

Duotone is not very relevant nowadays. 

4C printing is not as expensive as it used to be and printing spot colors can be somewhat of a hassle (what with the ensuing cleaning needs). 

 

And for anything except printing Duotne does not actually make much sense as the effect/s can be approximated in RGB etc. otherwise. 

 

So I would not expect improvements for Duotone preset management in the future.

I was using it just for black and white photos. It was handy to have single step preset for a change in tone that would be consistant .

Have you tried using Gradient Map Adjustment Layers (and Gradient Presets) to that end?

No, I'll have to teach myself to use them as I'm a bit ignorant.

Thanks for the advice. Youtube and Google here I come

Renaming assets is a great idea.  I mainly do it with brush .abr groups so they list together.  I am less inclined to rename individual presets because if the group they are in is in the main right click brush presets menu, then the best way to find a particular preset is the search bar.  Same thing with the other groups like Patterns, Styles, Shapes and Gradients.  They all have search bars.

 

Another approach is to create a favourites group, and drag presets to that.  There are something like 700 brush presets in Kyle Webster's Megapack, and I bet I only use the same dozen or so.   Speaking of which, and going off at the obligitory tangent, there are some nice presets in Kyle's 2024 Winter Pack. He must get very bored turning out brush presets by the thousand, and having to include presets as near identical to ones he has produced a dozen times already.
