Photoshop Elements’ Camera Raw develop window is a limited version of its “big sister’s” ACR window.
Among other things, it also lacks the ability to save presets. That’s a pity however, there is a workaround for that…
Lets say you prefer a certain color profile and you want to reproduce this particular look, on a number of photos.
First, we recommend that you get your camera’s Cross Camera Color DNG Profile pack.
Check out the supported camera list*.

After installing the DNG profiles, open a photo in Photoshop Elements:

Click on the the Camera Calibration tab.
Click on the Camera Profile menu and choose the preferred color profile.
Personally, I like the color scheme of Nikon D3 Portrait profile:

Now, comes that little workaround…
Show the windows menu and choose – Save New Camera Raw Defaults:

That’s it!
Next time you open a photo, this will be your default color profile:

If for some reason the new default doesn’t work automatically, choose Camera Raw Defaults from ACR’s menu:

* If you can’t find your camera in the supported camera list, contact us and we will be happy to create it for you.
