The custom preset thumbnails are listed upon clicking on the 'My Presets' button at the bottom right, provided you saved custom presets (or move existing ones) to this directory:


The above directory is automatically created when you save a preset for the first time with Photomatix for Linux 1.1 or when you click on the 'My Presets' button for the first time, but you can also create it manually (if you want to install third-party presets for instance).
