People who saw my black and white photos with fog asked me if I also wanted to make a preset for color. I started on that but in the end it ended in the "Multi Film" for Color Efex. It's called that because with these settings you can give the photo many different shapes in terms of color and atmosphere. To do this, change the settings for Infrared Film, Old Photo and Cross Process.

In fact, this is a multi-purpose preset for you to experiment with.

Below an example of a photo that has been edited with this preset. By clicking on it you see it large and you can quickly switch back and forth with the arrow keys between the two photos to see the differences. The preset that you download gives the result below with the default setting also on similar photos.

If you click on the photo below you can see it on Flickr and see the responses to the photo.

Fading Distance

This is a preset to really experiment with. The Infrared Film, Old Photo and Cross Process settings in particular can greatly change the appearance of the photo, hence the name “Multi Film” for the preset. If you make something beautiful, save it. Do you want to share the preset? That is possible via this website, then give me a message,
