Essential
The name says it all. This is the foundation of Abide. The place where the color in the file comes to life and where every other preset in this pack was built from. Slightly open shadows, a warm welcoming tone, rich contrast, and a cinematic drama lives right under the surface. Essential is always the right place to start.

Essential - Soft Color
This is my favorite preset in this pack because the tones are so subtle and yet the way the light comes through is still modern and crisp. A little less punch in the colors that sometimes cause some trouble like green and orange allows skin tones to feel true to life while being incredibly forgiving in mixed and complex lighting situations.

Essential - Punchy
Just enough extra. We rebuilt the Essential preset for Punchy to allow for a bit more drama throughout the entire file without saturations going crazy. It's meant to lay right beside a soft color or essential edit and not get too much attention but still get noticed. The perfect preset for backlit or low contrast situations to add flare and spice back into the image.

Essential - BW
Just enough character without losing the moment. This Black and White is balanced and timeless. A blend of modern dynamic range and nostalgic film inspired blacks make this my very favorite black and white I've ever worked with. I love using this preset when I have an image packed with emotion or context and the color is taking away from the moment.

Matte
Similar to the Soft Color preset but like the artsy filmic little brother. The Matte preset is a break from the timeless vibes of the Essential set. A trendy cross between expired film and polaroid with grain and texture and the perfect soft tones throughout. It's not for every session but when it's perfect, no other preset comes close.

Matte BW
Muted but not muddy. Soft but not glowy. Textured but not gritty. This BW pairs perfectly with the color Matte preset as a playful unexpected element in this pack. It's the BW I never knew I always wanted.

AI Tool Kit
Subject Retoucher
With just one click, this AI mask delicately enhances facial skin, brightens teeth, and brightens eyes.
Background Softener
This mask was designed to gently soften excessively sharp backgrounds, imparting them with a dreamlike allure.
Sky Crusher
A preset mask that resurrects a blown-out sky, allowing you to feather it to your desired degree.
Background Crusher - Full
This enhancement tool produces the same effect as the Sky Crusher but applies it to the entire background. When used alongside the Sky Crusher, it amplifies your dynamic range.
Background Crusher - Lower
Equivalent to the Background Crusher - Full, but specifically designed to darken the lower part of the image.
Calm Orange Skin
Harnessing the power of AI masking to subtly reduce orange saturation in targeted areas of the skin, this preset intelligently mitigates excessive orange tones, especially when the skin appears overly saturated.
Smart Warmer
We crafted this mask with the art of precision warming in mind. Often, when we adjust the white balance temperature for warmth, the entire image and subject can become overly heated. Instead, this mask employs AI to delicately add warmth to select areas of the image while also tempering areas where excess warmth may not be desired.
Smart Warmer +
This represents an intensified iteration of the Smart Warmer, empowering you to infuse your image with a generous dose of warmth.
