How To Change Default Develop Settings In Lightroom

Have you ever wondered how to change the default develop settings in Lightroom?

Make a change in develop, hold alt key (reset button changes to set defaults) click set defaults, then click to confirm.

Long version:
In the develop module you can set your own custom develop defaults. Here is how you do it:

  1. Make the setting change you want.
  2. Hold down option on mac/alt on pac (reset button will change to say set defaults)
  3. Click the set defaults.
  4. Click to confirm.

These defaults will be set specific to each camera model. But if you want to get even more advanced you can set it to apply to specific camera serial numbers or ISO settings in the Prefernces/presets menu.
