Vivid Nightscape

Nightscape photography images can be a challenge to edit, with a wide variety of difficulties that arise from exposure and white balance, to noise reduction and sharpening. And, there isn’t always one “correct” way to process a nightscape image!

The SLR Lounge Preset System for Adobe Camera Raw contains multiple presets that offer both “Natural” and “Vivid” versions of bright, dark, and HDR style processing for your nightscape photos.
