Gives A Softer Look On Your Image

Soft Pastels. The preset plays with its lighting by reducing highlights and whites. This enables the preset to cut out harsh lines, and edges, creating an overall softer look. The images above show how these effects look once applied. In the Before photo, some elements such as the woman’s features, the flowers, and leaves, also the woman’s dress all appear crisp and sharp. Once the preset is applied, you can see how these areas are suddenly darker, toning down the sharpness and adding some haze to create an overall softer, delicate look.

Creates Warmer Skintone

Under the Sun. The Uber Fade preset increases yellow color saturation and purple color luminance. When mixed together, this helps create warmer looking skin tones, as well as intensifying blonde or brown hues that you can see this in the images above.

Notice how in the After image, the woman’s skin tone looks more tan and tinted rather than pale. Her blonde hair also gains a darker shade, making it pop. Lastly, the wooden beam on the wall changes in color, having more intense pigments than the other faded elements.

Adds Warm Magenta Overlay

Facing the Wall. The Uber Fade preset adds a thin magenta filter throughout the image. This gives an overall warm effect on the image as the magenta tints have warm yellow undertones. The image above shows how this filter performs in an image with lots of whites. Looking at the After photo, it is evident that the light magenta filter covers the entire wall. It also gives a hazy grained effect, making the image appear slightly blurred. Another color element is also seen through the corner shadows of the embedded windows, displaying light yellow tones. These subtle details add to the look and feel of the overall image.

Brings Out Darks and Contrasts

Coastal Cove. The preset reduces highlights, whites, and saturation. It also increases shadows and contrast. These adjustments mean having the lesser appearance of brighter clean lines and bring out more dark areas. The image above perfectly shows this. Look at the Before image: you can see most of the details from the rock formation on the side, the trees surrounding the cove and structures below. The ocean water is also lighter, and clearer. Now, turning to the After photo, darker elements are more evident. The details of the rock formation on the side are now dark and blurred, the surrounding trees turn into a cluster of darks and contrast. The ocean water has more color separation, seeing lighter and darker pigments. The overall image has now more contrasts than highlights, also gaining a textured fade throughout.
