Q: Why are the presets in the Primer Video different than the presets in the download?

Q: What makes Lightroom Presets CC v1.1 different from Lightroom Presets v5?
- Completely Rebuilt and New Mixologies -
In the new Lightroom Presets CC, we've gone through and rebuilt all of our Portrait Mixologies from the previous 2015 system. This new preset system now boasts an improved control over color and skin tonality while retaining overall contrast. We've also refined all of our Foundation Presets for those who are looking to create and customize their own Mixologies. This new updated version of Lightroom Presets CC also includes revamped film presets with more accurate tonality with an additional 3 new Portrait Mixology Presets.
- Simplified & Refined Framework -
With this new update, we've moved away from our old framework of creating either "soft" or "vivid" images and have instead, implemented a new singular framework that is now even more powerful and easier to use. This new system is made to be more intuitive as it helps our users now to create their own custom Mixologies in just a few clicks.
- Advanced Customization System (ACS) -
In v6, we introduced color toning and B&W toning to the adjustments portion of the workflow. Now, as a part of our new Advanced Customization System, we've added more ways to customize color tonalities. In addition to refining all prior color toning presets, we've also incorporated filmic color toning and a revamped curve system. We've added two whole new curves to the updated curve system as a way to help our users create their perfect version of any preset.
- Refined Brushes for Retouching & Advanced Effects -
We've enhanced our previous retouching and brush presets to now include Detail Enhancers and new Special FX brushes that help with adding tilt shifts, split toning, and more. The previous SFX Color Schemes have also since been removed and rebuilt in the new CC version.
- Note: We have also made small naming changes, for example, the Signature Color preset is now called the Standard Color preset and the Signature Black and White Preset is now the Standard Black and White Preset.
