Combine different Lightroom presets into one

Hi all,

I am sure the title is confusing you but I have a question concerning the ability to combine different Lightroom presets into one. So over the years I made a whole collection of presets for weddings, landscape, travel etc. And I was wondering if it is possible to combine say 10 presets from my wedding collection and make one which is basically an averaged out look based on all the tweaks contained in the presets.

I know this can't be done in Lightroom, but with the addition of profiles I thought the might be a way to achieve this in photoshop or a LUT program which lets you add 10 presets at 10% opacity or presence if you will. I know it can be done manually by taking each slider in Lightroom and take the average value of the slider (e.g. vibrance (+20;+10;-20)/3 = +3) but for 10 presets per collection this would take ages to figure out.

So far my workflow has been to create virtual copies with different presets and adjusting opacity of each virtual copy in PS.

If anyone has an idea about how I could create a combined preset that would be great!

Marc
