What to do when you change your preset | Aftershoot Tutorial

The tutorial explores how to update presets in Aftershoot, a tool for automating photographers’ workflows. Users can update profiles either by re-uploading images with a new preset, though labor-intensive, or by adjusting the existing profile for efficiency. The guide provides detailed steps for making changes and fine-tuning settings for optimal results.

Today, we’re diving into the world of Aftershoot with a comprehensive tutorial on what to do when you change your preset. If you’re an Aftershoot user who loves tweaking your workflow for maximum efficiency, this guide is for you. Let’s get started!

Introduction to Aftershoot

Aftershoot is an innovative tool that helps photographers automate their post-processing workflow. By training the AI on your editing style, you can significantly reduce the time spent on editing each batch of photos. However, what happens when you decide to change your preset? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered.

Step-by-Step Guide to Updating Your Preset in Aftershoot

1. Load Aftershoot and Access Your Profile

First, open Aftershoot and navigate to your profiles. If you’ve recently adjusted your preset, you have two main options to update your Aftershoot profile:

2. Option 1: Re-Upload Old Photos with a New Preset

This method involves creating a separate Lightroom preset that adjusts all your past images to reflect your new preset settings. Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Create a New Preset: Adjust your old images in Lightroom to match your new preset settings.
  • Re-Upload Images: Upload these adjusted images to Aftershoot.
  • Train the AI: The AI will now be trained on these newly adjusted images, ensuring a clean and accurate profile.

While this method ensures a pristine profile, it is quite labor-intensive, especially if you have a large number of images.

3. Option 2: Adjust the Existing Profile

The second and more efficient option is to adjust the profile you’ve already trained. Here’s how:

  • Go to Profile Settings: In Aftershoot, navigate to your profile settings by clicking on the three dots and selecting “Adjust Profile.”
  • Adjust Individual Settings: Start tweaking individual settings to match your new preset. For example, if you’ve changed the magenta value in your new preset, you can set this as a fixed value in Aftershoot.
    • Fixed Value Settings: Set values for colors, saturation, luminance, and other adjustments to match your new preset.
    • AI Correction: For settings like contrast, you can add a correction value. If your new preset requires more contrast, you can tell the AI to increase the contrast by a specified value.

4. Save Changes and Edit with Ease

Once you’ve made all necessary adjustments, hit “Save Changes.” Now, every time you use your profile in Aftershoot, it will apply your new preset settings to the images.

Tips for Fine-Tuning

  • Small Tweaks: If your adjustments are minor, like a slight color correction, Aftershoot allows for quick changes.
  • Test and Adjust: If the new settings aren’t perfect, don’t hesitate to go back and make further tweaks until you achieve the desired look.


Updating your preset in Aftershoot is a breeze with these steps. Whether you choose to re-upload old photos or adjust your existing profile, Aftershoot makes it easy to keep your workflow efficient and consistent. Thanks for tuning into our Aftershoot tutorial, don’t worry… more coming soon!
