Applies a Subtle Warm Tint
Homey Warmth. This preset subtly increases the color temperature of the image. As a result, you can notice how the above After photo looks gently sunlit. It remains realistic, natural-looking — not at all overdone. Porcelain Pro further balances this out by adding a touch of green tint.
You can compare the whites in the example above. The one on the right, with Porcelain Pro, appears warmer, somewhat like ivory. The couch is also grayer, given the subdued colors. All objects in the photo now look unified and exquisitely inviting.
Moderates Light and Color Intensity
Pastel Hues. To display more of its adjustments in color and somewhat brighten scenes, Porcelain Pro moderately increases exposure. You can see how the After photo above is now a bit brighter than the original.
The preset then adjusts the intensity of colors. It blends color enhancements so well that, even with the apparent transformation, the hues retain their natural look. It lowers contrast, saturation, and vibrance to produce pastel hues. Then, to retain depth, it increases clarity. It, therefore, reinforces midtones as it mutes most colors in the image.
Produces Soft Neutral Whites
Soft Whites. Porcelain Pro preset produces images that do not have any harsh elements, whether in tone or color. In this case, we will examine how it handles tones.
First, it mutes highlights and lightens shadows; this means that the preset narrows tones. You do not get harsh blinding whites, nor plain inky blacks. Then, the preset refines this by adjusting the tone curve accordingly and adding a light gray tone in the highlights. This, as a result, produce crisp, detailed, and more neutral whites.
Creates a Serene Color Palette
Serene Hues. The preset's artistry lies in its distinct color blending. You will consistently get a serene palette. Its improvements in the Hue, Saturation, and Luminance (HSL) panel are so refined that the palette can be applied in various scenes.
Porcelain Pro further warms yellow and orange colors, as it lightens blue hues to aqua. Then, to complement these, it also deepens aqua, green, and purple shades. You can immediately see the result in the above image of Santorini: the door and the sky are now more tranquil in aqua shades.
Undersaturation. To go with its soft and understated motif, the preset lowers the saturation of all colors, except aqua. It further complements this look by lowering the luminance of all warm colors while adding some brilliance to aqua and green.
As you can observe, these effects are most visible in photographs with natural elements. You can examine the result in the above After photo. Note the muted leaves and flowers in this quaint urban street.
