General Features


The Menu Bar

BWStyler's menu bar is located between the Preview tab button and the tool icons above the preview. The BWStyler plugin offers four menus. The Standalone version provides an additional File menu, which is discussed on the Standalone/Lightroom Features page.

The Preset menu features items for opening and saving presets as well as setting the default preset folder. The Open Preset and Save Preset (As) items are for opening and saving preset files. The sub menus on the Preset menu represent the different preset groups that are also displayed on the preset list and on the combo box on the Preset tab. Clicking one of these sub menu items immediately opens the appropriate preset. For more details see the Preset Tab page.

The Show menu contains the names of all BWStyler effects. Clicking one of these menu items displays the effect controls in Advanced or Advanced+ Mode. If one of these effects is active, there is a check mark at the left hand side of its menu entry.

The Disable menu displays the names of the currently active BWStyler effects. Clicking a menu item disables the selected effect. This can be useful for removing individual effects of a preset that you do not want to use, e.g. the grain or brightness adjustments.

The Help menu lets you display the BWStyler manual, the BWStyler web page and an About dialog.
