In this download 3 presets are included that I made for portraits and street scenes. They may also be applicable with 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 easily install the presets in Color Efex. If you have started Color Efex you will see on the left, where the examples are shown, a choice "Imported". On the right is a +, by clicking on it a window will open in which you can look up and install the presets, so very easy.

Below 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 see it enlarge on a black background.
