If you find that you are constantly filtering your photographs using the same criteria, you can streamline the process by saving your custom filter as a preset. For example, when working on my composite images, I often look for photographs of rough paper to use as texture overlays. This requires that I click on the Text option (in the Filter bar) and then select Keywords and type in the desired keyword. Then, I refine the filter farther by clicking the Attribute option and selecting 2 or greater stars. Instead of doing this each time I need to filter for paper photos, I set up the criteria once, then click the double headed arrow to the left of the Filter Lock icon and select “Save Current Settings as New Preset”.
