Creates Warm Tones
Warm and Relaxed. With the Terra-Cotta Road preset, your images easily transform into a warmer relaxed look. This photo perfectly portrays how the sand transforms in the After photo - creating an impression that the sand's color reflects from the rays of the sun, leaving you with a hearty natural look.
Notice how this preset changes the other two elements in the photo: the bridge and the ocean. In the After photo, the bridge's light and color suddenly resonates with the rest of the image creating a coherent front. The ocean's color is swiftly altered by increasing purple luminescence. Suddenly, the blue tones of the water are varied and create an accent and depth on the overall image.
Defined and focused. The Terra- Cotta Road preset is able to define the different points and elements in the photo by increasing its saturation, contrast, and highlights.
In this photo, the mountains and trees slightly changed in color with added definition on the shadows and light. Through this, the image changed its sole focus on the man to the overall scenery and other elements of the photo.
Highlights Deeper Shades
Calm and Cool. The Terra-Cotta Road preset, highly resonates purple hues and tones. It is evident in this example, how the water turns into a cool and serene space that accentuates and compliments the horizon. This is all achieved by increasing vibrance and purple luminance, and orange saturation.
Adds Radiant Touch in Light
Magical and Clear. This preset can turn around your gloomy photos into something that blooms. In this photo, it is very noticeable how the preset transformed the photo with more layers, depth, and character.
The sparkler in the photo is the focal point of the photo. It is highlighted with a mix of orange and yellow tones depicting the very clear luminance.
Notice the sky and the cityscape at the background — because of the rapid change of colors, the preset's blue and purple tones both act as a contrast and highlight which resulted in a more evident layer rather than just one focal point. The elements behind can now tell a story on its own.
Adds Brilliance in Orange Tones
Brilliant and Lively. Capturing city street photos with low light definitely leaves you to adjusting your camera's settings to achieve a clearer photo. The Terra-Cotta Road preset helps you enhance your low light photos by sharpening and adding the highlight and depth on the shadows and light.
In the After photo, the green grainy undertone of the dark sky transformed into a darker hue creating a contrast with the elements with light. The lights are heightened with orange and yellow tones to give you a brilliant and lively focus shaping the overall image.
Intensifies Low Light Images
Strong and Stunning. This photo perfectly depicts how the Terra-Cotta Road preset works in a dark, low light setting. Observe how the purple hues touch the shadows of the image, creating an illusion of fog and mist on the trees and the side of the bridge. This instantly gives more context on the blurred parts of the photo.
The sky in the After photo changes its depth through different colors bringing out more stages and elements. The lighter part of the sky now has an indigo lining that mixes with the clouds and the different shades of blue that creates contrast with the other aspects of the photo.
