If you use Lightroom then I hope you’ll be interested in this post. It’s a sort of review and a sort of promotional one.
A few days ago freelance photographer Samuel Zeller, a Fujifilm ambassador (X-Photographer) based in Switzerland, offered a set of presets to celebrate an event on Instagram. This was to be a free set of tools to assist in image editing. It’s a very useful package containing presets, curve settings and a set of eight of Samuel’s RAW images each to match a specific preset. Providing one’s own images to others is a very rare occurrence, indeed, I can’t remember any pro photographer doing so.
I’ve downloaded Samuel’s package and I have to say that I’m delighted with the results. I’m still playing with presets and curves on my own images and I really like the results. I’ll post an image later this week, all being well.
Even if you are not an Instagram member, you can still obtain this set of presets by registering your e-mail address at presets.samuelzeller.ch and Samuel will send you a link to the download. Full instructions for installation are contained in the package along with a licence agreement.
There is a likelihood that further presets will be made available and I’ll keep my eyes open for future packages and pass on the details to you here.
The presets are NOT specific to Fujifilm cameras and should work on RAW files from most camera platforms.
