Draws Out Your Pet’s Colors
Color Boost. Notice how much more captivating the After photo looks. The retriever’s fur looks more complex, plush, and even more golden. The soft warmth complements the charming appeal of the image as well.
To create this look, Family Pet amplifies contrast and slightly increases warm temperature. It overall result just looks great on this golden retriever’s portrait!
These fundamental adjustments also make way for more detailed improvements in tone and color. More on this in the examples below.
Reveals Details with Moderated Tones
Details Revealed. We all know how important it is to showcase the features of our pets. We want to emphasize the attractive eyes, coat patterns — well, as much of them as possible.
Family Pet thus moderates tones to make the most of the captured shot. Its softening of highlights and shadows helps reveal more details.
Try to examine the results in the After photo above. You can see more of the tabby’s patterns and lightened chest fur.
Brightens and Reinforces Midtones
Crisp Midtones. The preset brightens the whites in an image, thus adding some brilliance to light areas. In the above example, see how whiter and brighter the wall is. The kitten’s toy and white fur look softer because of it, too. Just imagine how amazing this preset will look on a predominantly white pet! This helps them look cuddlier, as cuddly as you perceive them to be.
Then, to produce the strong midtones that make colors pop, Family Pet boosts clarity. This goes hand in hand with the amplified contrasts mentioned above.

Produces Rich and Vivid Hues
Bright and Vivid. Family Pet softens the saturation of hues, given the already heightened clarity and contrast. This moderates the intensity of colors; it will give just enough boost to produce striking pet photos.
The preset also increases the luminance of green, warm and cool colors. As a result, these colors appear brighter. In the above example, see how it adds some sheen to the dog’s patterned scarf and luxurious copper fur. For a photo like this, you can also easily use a warmer and film-like look.

Sharpens and Gives the Image a Nice Polish
Fine Textures. The preset further refines details by sharpening the image. You can perceive the textures more because of this adjustment; this is, after all, very important for your pet’s expressions and patterns. Look at the puppy’s ears in the image above. You can see so much more of the fur!
Finally, as a finishing touch, Family Pet reduces noise in the image. This gives a nice polished look and feel.
