The Luxe Stack-Its Color Pop presets are uniquely crafted as quick stacking tools to provide powerful final touches to your images for a unique and professional edit, no matter the general preset used.
How does this collection work? We recommend that after addressing any present lighting issues in your image with exposure and white balance corrections, that you first apply a standard/general preset from an appropriate collection. Then, for final professional-grade refinements to your image, you can apply 1 preset from each category of stack-its. Select your category based on the unique needs of your image. (It is not necessary to use a preset from each category, simply mix and match those fit for your image.)
We've created a visual guide for you here, with 3 unique editing outcomes using Stack-Its:
1. Correct White Balance:
Here we've corrected White Balance with the auto "Daylight" setting.
2. Adjust Exposure:
Here we've boosted Exposure to "+0.35"
3. Apply General Preset:
Here we've applied the "Subtle Sunshine" preset from the Luxe Portraits collection
4. Apply Stack-Its:
Here we've applied "HDR" + "Vibrance/Saturation 5"
Here we've applied "Pop Colors" + "Warmth" + "Blacks 40"
Here we've applied "Clear" + "Faded Shadows/Highlights" + "Pastel" +"Cool" + "Shadow Details" + "Blacks 40"
