Sets the Mood with a Warm Color Temperature
Homey Warmth. The Family Day preset makes photos expressive by increasing the color temperature. The added warmth makes photos look sunlit and radiant — an accurate visual representation of familial bond. This adjustment works best on images taken outdoors. Sunlight would appear golden, thus adding a magical and nostalgic feel.
You can examine the result in the above After photo. The family portrait is now brilliant. The sunlight through the leaves looks subtly golden, as though the photo was taken during the golden hour. Because of this simple adjustment, the family photo now looks more joyful. The preset further refines this effect in the succeeding improvements.
Moderates Tones for a Nostalgic Feel
Deep Tones. The preset compresses tones to make them crisp and vivid. It also makes sure that highlights and shadows are in moderate intensity. Because of these, tones remain textured, whether light or dark.
You can examine the result of these adjustments in the above After photo. Note how the structures appear less bright but look more defined.
To go with the overall warm motif, Family Day preset also adds warm tones in highlights and shadows. This adds depth to the image, all the while blending with its color palette.
Produces Brilliant Colors
Lively Hues. The preset lowers saturation to soften hues and draw attention to the subject. You will notice that, despite it, the skin tones remain vivid: this is because of the preset’s increase in clarity and balanced vibrance.
The liveliness that the preset exudes largely comes from its luminance boost. Green and warm colors thus look brilliant. These enhancements are most noticeable in photos taken outdoors.
Clear Features. After applying thorough enhancements in light, color, and tone, Family Day preset now focuses on texture. It sharpens images further to reveal more detail; after all, you would want to capture as much of the moment as possible.
As a final touch, the preset applies some soft vignetting. It subtly helps draw attention to the subject of the portrait.
Look at how all the tweaks come together to produce such an endearing father-daughter photo above. Both subjects are well illuminated; we can appreciate much of their features and tender expressions. The radiant warmth that coats the image also heightens the mood of such a loving moment.
