Importing images into LR we often find our self using many of the exact same steps
I like to add 5 points of Black to every image I import
as well as automate many of the other importing steps
Once you get to the screen that allows you to select which images to import or eliminate the few you do not want to import, notice a thin Black line at the bottom of that window titled "Import Preset"
Click where it says None and you should get a pop up window allowing you to create (name) a preset for this
