Presets speed up your workflow by allowing you to quickly apply a set of effects to an image. Presets are not meant to be the end point in your editing, just a quick start to it. These presets were developed after shooting thousands of landscape images on and around Philip Island, Australia. They are named after some of our favourite places on the island. Some of our Presets work better for light images and others for darker images. After choosing a preset you’ll want to tweek the sliders on the right in the Development module a little. If it’s too dark, increase the exposure, increase the shadow slider and white values. If it’s too bright, decrease the exposure, blacks and shadows a little. You may want to apply a graduated filter on the sky to bring it’s exposure down just a little more and increase the clarity to make the clouds pop out and so on. Go on, have a play aronud with all those sliders. If it gets too out of control, just select a Photo Ranger preset again and start over, very simple.
