How to Customize Lightroom Classic’s Default Develop Settings (v9.2) 

Lightroom Classic now provides an easier and more intuitive way to customize the default rendering of your raw files in order to streamline your editing workflow. For example, if you prefer to apply custom raw settings upon import (such as using camera styles defined “in-camera” or using a different camera profile or  slider settings in Lightroom), instead of first importing files and later changing the settings, you can use the new Raw Defaults Presets preferences to manage the default rendering of your images.

Working with Snapshots in Lightroom Classic

Creating a Snapshot in Lightroom Classic “captures” all of the settings applied to an image and saves them as a single entry in the Snapshot panel.
