This week I released my presets for the Macphun software Intensify Pro.
The last few weeks I’ve been using Intensify pro on 99% of my images, sometimes very subtle and painting the effect in in select areas of the shots, but also sometimes on full power for my street photography.
In the past I got into the hyperreal look with a software plugin called Lucis art, but they really dropped the ball by leaving out Mac 64bits support. After this the best alternative was NIK Tonal Contrast but it somehow was just a bit too rough for me, when I got Topaz Clarity I finally found something that at least could give me some of that hyper sharpness back without halo’s around the images and I still love Topaz clarity and highly recommend it.
However when you’re on the Mac make sure to check out Macphun’s Intensify (pro) it’s awesome, it gives you a lot to play with and the results are awesome.
I dedicated a Quite Frankly episode to the plugin version which you can find here
After this episode I got a lot of questions about my presets for Intensify so I decided to create a special preset package for you guys to use. These are the presets I use on a daily basis and are fine tuned for the work I do, so they are aimed at street/travel photography and model photography. I’ve included several BW conversions with loads of contrast and details and a very subtle (but very cool) skin pop preset that will really pop your beauty portraits, and I even included a Lastolite background pop preset and a Semi Lucis version.
You can download the presets from our online store they are priced at EU 7.50 and the package contains 23 presets.
Here are some samples.
