Recovering Adjustment Presets

Last Modified: Apr 2, 2012 7:40 PM

If you ever delete any of the stock Adjustment Presets supplied by Aperture you can do the following to get them back:


First Quit Aperture


  1. Go to folder ~/Library/Application Support/Aperture - That is your home Library folder. In Lion that Folder is hidden so to see in Finder do Go->Go to Folder, in the window that opens enter ~/Library/Application Support/Aperture press return
  2. Move the Adjustment Chain Presets file to the Desktop
  3. Restart Aperture


The factory presets should be back.


Note: if you have any custom presets you should export them before doing this and then import once the stock presets are back.
