Batch Import of Images to User Presets

Scroll Prev Top Next More

If you have a range of images you would like adding to the User presets, you can drag and drop the images onto the Presets panel, and they will be added a Element: Images. This is ideal if you have a library of HDRI maps for example that you would like available within HDR Light Studio.

Simply drag and drop the selected images onto the Presets panel.
It doesn't matter what type of content is active in the drop down menus, the images will always be added as Element:Images

batch_import_images_01

Once the images have been dropped, you will be asked to confirm you wish to continue with converting the images to presets.
Choose Yes to continue.

batch_import_images_02

The Presets name/description will be inherited from their file name. But you should tag them appropriately. Here we have created a new tag HDRI_Maps
Press OK to continue.

batch_import_images_03

Now each image will be processed into a .tx file that is added to the User Presets folder, with an accompanying .xml file describing the preset.

batch_import_images_04

Once all of the images have been processed a confirmation will be displayed.
Press OK to close the panel.

batch_import_images_05

If you select Element: Images and the tag HDRI_Maps, you will now be able to see the images that have been added to the User Presets.

batch_import_images_06

These images are now available to drag and drop onto image fields in the light properties panel.
