Hi all,

I want to share my own recreated presets. Because of Pixelmator's somewhat limited color management nature, I could not fully recreate the effect I wanted but with some tweaks presets can help you to speed up your workflow or at least give you different look. Clarity tool would be useful for some adjustments and boosting the mood!

Awesome stuff, thanks for sharing! The URL wasn't working initially (looks like our forum doesn't like it when the 'https' part is omitted) so I fixed that for you.

Other than a Clarity adjustment, what other improvements would you like to see?

Hi/Labas Andrius!

First and foremost - White balance in Kelvins (crucial for professional photography).
Secondly - Lighten/Darken, Gradient and other edits should be available in RAW too!!!
Thirdly: something like Adobe's calibration would make great addition and would help to improve both colors/presets.

Fourth: Adjustment brush would make a day.

Long term improvements:
Lens profiles.
Change history visible somewhere in the corner.
Copy developed photo settings and pasting on another.
Split toning option would be nice at some point (but at least you can mimic with Levels now).

Huge thanks for great program you have created with your team!

Ah, thanks! The only one that may not be possible is white balance in kelvins, at least without bigger foundational changes... In any case, I appreciate the clarification and certain other things are more likely (local RAW adjustments, possibly via adjustment layers). Edit history is something we've also considered in the past. Copying and pasting settings is already kind of possible, if you have both photos open, that is. A more expanded version of this workflow might also be more suited to a Pixelmator Photo-type app on macOS.

Cheers, it's pity that Kelvins are not possible but we hope for the best!
