Downloading settings

When I have completed making changes to my photo I know I can save them as a Preset but if you did this for every photo you would end up with literally hundreds of presets; even by putting them into a folder on their own would still mean a lot of presets. I know I can create and save basic settings presets that I am likely to apply to every photo and then make adjustments after that.

I want to be able to have a list of the final settings for each photo in a text file so that I can a) send it with a photo that is being critiqued by a tutor on a course, b) to make a database that I can look at to see common settings to create presets and c) not have to figure it out all over again because I cannot remember what I did a few days ago or even minutes.

Currently I am making a screenshot of the settings and as you can appreciate, that could be several photos per photo.

My thoughts are that perhaps a menu item or some kind of button could be designed into the software to lift these settings out of the database of any given photo and then export it. This could sit nicely in with the EXIF and IPPC buttons. If it is complicated to export it then taking a screenshot of a list like this would dramatically reduce the number required.

Comments from other users, and ideas, would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the sidecar .ON1 files contain those setting, but encoded. I guess it would be relatively easy to have an option to convert/decode the sidecar settings into a human readable format.

    If you use layers isn;t that enough? Each layer retains the settings.

    You can always take the settings from any photo you like and create a preset. You can also copy/paste or sync settings too.

    Yes, of every image you’ve worked on, every setting is always retained and shown as soon as you open it. I understand that in some rare cases you may want the editing-info to be available off-line, but you can always install ON1 on your laptop and take it with you, couldn’t you?
