Create a New Preset

To start, click the Preset + button at the bottom of the capture window. There are 2 ways to create a preset:

  1. The quickest way to create a preset is to save your current capture settings by selecting New preset from current settings.
    This creates a preset of your current settings, which allows you to quickly reuse them with the click of a button.
  2. The second way is to select New Preset… and customize the capture settings just the way you want.
    The Edit Preset window appears with all the capture options available.
