Adds a Layer of Soft Warmth
Tropical Air. To set the tropical motif, Tropical Tangerine first warms color temperature and coats images with a soft green tint. The combination of these fundamental adjustments gives an airy summer feel. The preset will later fine-tuned this with improvements in color and tone.
The preset then produces the attractively gentle hues by decreasing color intensity. This means that it lowers contrast and saturation. Although muted, these colors remain brightly illuminated because of the preset's moderate increases in exposure and vibrance.
Moderates Tones for a Detailed Matte Look
Elegant Matte. This premium preset's matte look blends well with the warm color motif. For that, we have its fine tone adjustments to thank. It lowers black and white tones, making them look less brilliant yet crisp. Then, to draw out detail, it softens highlights and lightens shadows. These tweaks are useful when accentuating subtle hues and split toning.
Adds Subtle Tints on Highlights and Shadows
Split Toning. This little splash of color in highlights and shadows makes a whole world of difference — a small yet vital cohesive adjustment. It goes hand in hand with the warm color temperature and greenish tint.
Tropical Tangerine adds an aqua tint in highlights and a grayish indigo in shadows. Instead of being mostly black or white, these extremities in tone now comply with the preset's sophisticated tropical aesthetic.
Applies a Thorough Adjustment in the HSL Panel
Color Blend. For photographic elements to blend better, Tropical Tangerine preset sees to it that hues do not stray from its motif. Colors are made to look soft and warm: the preset lowers the saturation of all colors, and some hues are adjusted to look yellower — sunnier. Then, to further optimize the aqua and tangerine motif, the preset brightens warm colors and deepens cool ones. As a result, sand, skin, and hair will look sunlit, while skies and water will look crisp.
