A new pack of presets, called Crush, has just been released by SLR Lounge and DVLOP. With a "bold and vivid" aesthetic, this pack combines DVLOP's technical background in preset development with SLR Lounge's professional style. Want to see what's included?
The presets are based around a lighting condition system where you simply need to select the lighting conditions the shot was taken under and let the preset do the rest. They're designed to automatically create a punchy, vivid style, while still maintaining the skin tones. The lighting situations include soft light, hard light, faux-HDR, backlit, flash, black and white, and more — every lighting scenario is covered by a matching setup. The finished result is a natural but contrasty look, perfect for modern portraits, weddings, and event photography. A matching black and white look is also included, which has a strong contrast, slight grain, and deep shadows, making it a natural counterpart to the color looks.
The pack features 10 one-click presets, but the preset pack can also be bundled with the retouching toolkit. The retouching toolkit features 47 retouching brushes and 26 scene-enhancing tools. The retouching toolkit covers a huge range of editing scenarios, like eliminating skin blemishes, dodging and burning, enhancing skies, and adding sunflares. Since the retouching toolkit is built for Lightroom and ACR, you can complete more of your work within Lightroom, speeding up your editing workflow dramatically.
As the presets come from Visual Flow, buyers are also receiving more than just a one-off download. Instead, they also get access to tutorials on how to use the presets, free updates to the pack to refine the looks over time, and access to the community of thousands of other users.
The presets are available now and are compatible with Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic, Lightroom Mobile, and Adobe Camera Raw. The retouching kit is only compatible with the desktop applications.
