In this download 11 presets are included that I made for portraits. They may also be applicable for other things, but you can try that for yourself. Again, don't forget: A preset is a preset, you probably have to adjust it to the characteristics of your photo. So learn all possible settings well by playing a lot with them and seeing the effect. You can read how to install them in an article whose link is at the bottom of the article.

Below the download you can see the examples of the presets with the names. You can determine which preset you want to install based on the images. Click on the photo to enlarge it.
