Hi,

This may be a very basic question but I'm only 16, not a native english speaker and a relatively new user.

I have recently downloaded Photoshop CC (19.1.1) but am having trouble with the curves I use to edit my photos. I have downloaded several from the internet and saved them to a folder but can only load one at a time to photoshop, and whenever I re-start the app I have to re-load them all over again, one by one.

I never use the default ones and would like to substitute them permanently for the curves I do use. I remember being able to just copy the contents of my curves folder into the appropriate folder on photoshop and delete the ones I don't use, but don't seem to be able to do it now. I really don't want to spend ages loading each curve manually every time i restart the app. Could anyone kindly point me to the right direction? Thank you so much for your time.

Open an image and load the Curve

Click on the gear to the right of the Preset field

Choose Save Preset... and name it

Repeat for each new Preset

In the future go to Preset, click on its down arrow and choose your installed preset

They will be available each time you use Photoshop

I know that it has been a while since this question was answered, yet I have the exact same problem as isabel. If I save the curves, they still won't show up in the drop-down menue once I restart photoshop. This is really frustrating, because I have to load all of them seperately into Photoshop every time I start the program.
