How to use the NY pack.
1) Load an image and ensure you’re in the sRGB colour profile.
– You can set your colour profile in the Edit Menu using Convert to Profile.
Why do we use sRGB?
– Essentially because none of the images we based these looks on required the wider colour gamut of AdobeRGB.
– Experienced users can easily toggle between sRGB and AdobeRGB when necessary, while for the less experienced, sRGB makes for a simpler standard.
2) Locate your Actions Tab.
– This is found in the Window menu, if it’s not obviously available on screen.
3) Select the Leiblitz S preset and press the Play button at the bottom of the Actions tab.
4) If you’re happy with the result, select all the layers and merge them together.
– You can find Merge Layers in the Layers tab, or use the keyboard shortcut.
– If you’re not happy with the result, simply select all the layers apart from the bottom (Background) layer, and press delete or drag them into the bin.
– Otherwise you can toggle individual layers on and off; mix them in and out (using the Opacity slider); or edit any individual layers.
5) Using (pre) presets (optional) and Modifier presets.
– Many of the looks in the pack were reverse engineered from images shot under specific circumstances.
– A (pre) preset will attempt to match your unprocessed, colour-balanced image to the circumstances the presets in that series were developed under.
– Run the (pre) preset prior to applying any other processing, then (as above) select all the layers and Merge them.
– You can now run any of the image presets in that series.
– There are currently only (pre) presets for a few of the looks. Running the image presets with and without them will produce slightly different results.
– The example above (step 3) was processed with Leiblitz S preset, after first applying Leiblitz (pre).
