PRESET FAQs

Software Compatibility

In order for all features to be utilized at their highest efficiency, the Mandy Ford Situational Lighting Presets are only compatible with Lightroom Classic Desktop 12.0.1 Release or later, and ACR 15.0 or later.

At this time, is not recommended to use these presets with Lightroom Mobile or Lightroom (Cloud-Based Desktop App)

BOTH!

In the past, we had to choose between whether we wanted to edit with preset or profile bases. 

The Situational Lighting Presets are pre-mixed recipes with both a jumping off point preset, and an underlying base preset, and the full suite includes adjustment intensity slider presets to make editing even more efficient. 

We've tested these on hundreds of thousands of images over the last 7 years, and have found they are compatible for every brand (even jpg film scans!). 

What changes from camera to camera? Grain - The size of the megapixel that your camera provides may make grain appear larger if you are on an older DSLR with less image data and lower megapixel. 

White Balance - Our presets are auto-white balanced, so if you are on a newer, high-performing white balance camera such as Sony A9, you might prefer the camera's white balance over this preset. We have a simple, one-time fix for this if it's too distracting for your workflow.

Our presets work best on shots that have been properly exposed, or just a smidge underexposed. Though, they handle underexposure like a champ!
