Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
I've been playing around with LR3 (trial version for the moment) and have developed a photograph that I really like.

Is there any way to save the steps I've made (as a preset, maybe??) so I can reapply it to a new photo without having to start from the beginning again?
I think this is from a tutorial on LR2, but it should be the same in LR3.

Create a Develop preset

Presets you create are based on the current settings of the selected photo.

1. In the Develop module, click the Create New Preset (+) button at the top of the Presets panel or choose Develop > New Preset.
2. Click Check All to select everything or click Check None to deselect everything, and then click to select each of the settings to include in the preset.
3. Type a name in the Preset Name box, specify which folder the preset should appear in, and click Create.

The preset is added to the list in the Presets panel in the specified folder.
Thanks - I saw that but wasn't sure if the checkboxes represented what I had already set-up including levels, etc. I'll give it a go.
ETA - Just had a play around and it works perfectly! Thanks :)
