Poor George ii. He’s got a long wait ahead of him. To keep him from becoming bored I’ve left him my new set of presets to play with! The Christmaseh Presets Pack. You can play, too – bored or not.
Christmaseh Presets Pack
Now available as a download for :
Also available for PSE 6&7 as individual DNG files:
Examples of the presets applied to an original untweaked image can be seen below. Original and untweaked describes the state of George ii here, btw. When you have that much light you don’t really need process0rating, do you?
Examples of the Christmaseh Presets applied to an original image, no tweaking:
Also? While uploading the most recent files to mediafire I noticed the stats on the account. Oy. Astounding.

I’ve tweaked the presets for use with JPEGS and made them available for download as either a Lightroom Package or an ACR Package. Caveat Emptor – they will not be exactly like the RAW presets, there are some things you can do with RAW that just do not translate.
Why did I do this? The presets, as they are, when used on JPEGs tend to blow everything out; add too much light (I would never have thought that possible had I not seen it with my own eyes!). I have toned them down for use with JPEGS in ACR and then converted them for use with LR.
The packages both include:
Also if you’re like me you may be scratching your head. JPEGS in ACR? Heh?? It seems if you go in via Adobe Bridge and right click the option to “open in ACR” is there. Who knew. Not I. Until a few days ago.

How can such a festive bike be sad? It pines for teddy. Where, oh where, is teddy?

I wanted to take the vintage aliumery preset used this morning and make one that had more of a pinkish cast to it – like those very old photomographs you find buried in your grandmother’s attic. I came up with this, vintage aliumery 2 for Adobe Camera Raw | Lightroom. Yes, I’m very original.
The point I am trying to make? These free presets (along with all the others) are now available for download, free, for Photoshop Elements (6 & 7).
Instructions on installation have been updated (with graphics) for using the Presets in Elements
Also? I think I have a vintage addiction. I can’t stop applying these two presets to my photos.
Also, also? I discovered today that the rounded corners, which I cannot do in ACR/CS3, works when applied with a preset made in ACR/ CS4. I’m going to make up a preset for rounded corners! Just not right this instant. Sry.

I was messing around with this photo last night. It had been a royal PITA for days – nothing looked right. Then I applied the aliumery preset and started tweaking. This is what I ended up with. I rather like it. A lot. I have named it “vintage aliumery” in honour of its beginnings.
It is available as for download in both Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom formats. I also have Aristotle with me today, time permitting I will snap a few smaller RAW files and make up the Elements 6 & 7 files for emailing.
