I might have “missed the mark” here.
partial profiles, as far as I know cannot be implemented in succession on the same photo, thus they are only as a starting point for tweaking, or ‘as is’.
The presets that I referred to can be used like building blocks, with already preset values without the need to tweak every one of them afterwards.
-Again, ‘styles’ in DT work the same as ‘profiles’ in RT. However, there is no parallel to user presets for each profile, where you can pick and chose to compile a new ‘profile’ as needed. For this you have to tweak for each photo the desired filters.
The workflow time saving with such an attribute is immense.
Usually, I start with over 5000 photos, cull them to ~ 1000, and only then start processing. The desired end result is ~ 30 photos, or less. So, the more glow I can bring to my work, the better it is and more beneficial.
On average I take ~ 10,000 - 15,000 photos per week.
