Tool presets can save hours of time a week depending on the tools you use. For example, if you have three different fonts that you use for different clients all at certain sizes with specific alignment options, colors etc., simply set those options and, at the far left of the Options bar, click the tool icon to display the Tool Presets Picker (or select Window > Tool Presets to view the Tool Presets panel). Click the New Preset icon (the dog-eared page icon) to save your preset. You can also click the arrow for a variety of additional options such as saving and loading tool presets that you may share between machines and/or with friends. Obviously Tool Presets go far beyond fonts, as they can save any tool’s options such as cropping sizes, dodge and burn settings,paint brushes etc.
