Release Notes
March 6th, 2007

Welcome to PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW! This dynamite collection of development presets for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom was created by Photoshop Hall of Famer and renowned Photoshop educator, author and photographer Jack Davis. These presets expand the creative control that photographers have when processing their images.

Designed to work the way you work, the PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW! tackle only one development parameter at a time, allowing you to optimize your image at each step and create the look you really want without sacrificing any quality.  Rather than bloated presets that control all the variables at once and make adjustments that you may not like and you have to hunt down to fix. You start with adjusting your images color and tone and then can add effects like black and white conversions, tinting, split-toning and vignetting.

Getting Started with PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW!
PhotoPresets with One Click WOW! is a collection of development presets for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. You can find these presets by activating the Develop module in Lightroom. You can do this by clicking on "Develop" in the module bar or pressing command-option 2 (control-alt-2 for Windows) on you keyboard. The presets will be listed in the Presets panel on the left hand side. If you do not see the presets panel, go to Window...Panels...Presets to make it viewable.

WOW-a_WB White Balance Adjustments
WOW-b_Auto-Tone Tone & Curve Adjustments
WOW-b_Vibrance Vibrance Adjustments
WOW-c_HSL Hue, Saturation & Lightness Adjustments
WOW-d_BnW Black & White conversions

Workflow Concept - Adjust one Variable at a Time.

PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW! are designed to work the way you do and the way that Lightroom recommends. If you look at the tools in the development panels they are in an order, the order that you should adjust them. Starting with tonal and hue adjustments and followed by fine tuning options like color tinting, saturation, split-toning and vignetting. Using the PhotoPresets with One-Click WOW! works the same way. Rather than creating bloating presets that attempt to adjust many variables at once you pick one option from each of the categories listed above. You can easily preview your choices using the Navigator panel above the presets. This will show you the effect of the presets as your mouse glides over them.  Here are some step by step instructions on how to use them.

1. Start by selecting an image you wish to work on and then switching to the Develop module.
2. The first thing to adjust is the white balance. Run your mouse over the first section of presets that start with "WOW-a_WB" and watch the preview in the navigator. When you find the color balance that you prefer, simply click on that preset.
3. Now it is time to adjust the tonality. Repeat the same procedure as step two but with the presets labeled "WOW-b_Auto-Tone."
4. At this point your image should look like the scene you photographed. You can stop at this point if you wish but there are many more fun things you can do.
5. If you wish to change the Vibrance (saturation) you can use the the presets labeled "WOW-b_Vibrance."
6. You can also use the "WOW--c_HSL" presets to emphasis a certain color range or remove color from all but a certain color range yielding a hand-colored look.
7. If you are looking for dynamite black and white conversions try the "WOW-d_BnW" presets which will convert your image to black and white while simulating different contrast or color filters to emphasis certain tonal ranges.
8. You can also add a color tint, like a filter, to your image by using the "WOW-e_Tint" presets to add a touch of warm or cool.
9. And the final touch, a light or dark vignette may be added using the "WOW-f_Vignette" presets.

Quick Tips

Tip One:  Remember you can save your own recipes as presets so you can always find them again easily.

Tip Two: If you change your mind on setting, don't be afraid to go back and select a different preset at any time. Remember that the PhotoPresets only adjust one variable at a time.

Tip Three: If you ever wish to remove the effect of a preset use the WOW reset preset at the top of each section of presets.
