    Default Presets - do you use them?

    If not, why not? If you love them, why?



    Just curious. I've always just edited my photos. I'm not a huge fan of overly processed photos, but I'm not really accurate either and I adjust only to eye rather than to set numbers.
    Just looking at a couple of preset packages and in my head, the ability to just click to adjust is kind of cool. Just not sure how much I'd really use them.

    I use them a little, but they are more of a guide as I still adjust more after applying the preset. I kind of think they helped me learn a little bit because you can see in the settings what had been adjusted so you can get an idea of how to achieve a certain look yourself if that makes sense. I wouldn't say I love them, but they can be handy if you're like me and just learn as you go

    Cool thank you GHF.
    It does make sense. Shame they are so expensive to learn...

    If you like certain fb pages of different photographers they usually have freebies. I think I got a Paint the Moon one, and 'maybe' one from My Four Hens.

    I use them, but rarely. I prefer to edit myself.
