How to set photoshop target colors as the default

I had set the target colors in Level to check the tonality of a photo. First, I double-clicked on the white eyedropper and set it for printing to an inkjet printer for RGB 245,245,245, and clicked ok. Second, I double-clicked on the black eyedropper and set the shadow target color to 5 percent or RGB 12,12,12, and clicked ok. Third, I set the midtone to RGB 128,128,128, and clicked ok. I would like to know how can I save the target colors for the eyedroppers in the Levels or Curves dialog box in Photoshop Cs2 as the default.

With Curves open, click on Options, then Save as Default.

Gerald, In the levels dialog box, after you set the target values, actually perform a levels adjustment by using those eyedroppers on the open image. When you click the final OK button, PS will ask you if you wish to save the new target values. Click OK and they will be saved.
Regards, Murray
