Excellent set that made my workflow much faster on a job I needed to output everything to black and white

Grate preset and workflow. Will use this a lot

A lot of variable options that work well with different subject matters, from moody to light!

Verified buyer

If you’re looking for an easy solution to improve your photos, I found that the Sleeklens presets, brushes, and profiles provide an affordable and time saving option which produces good results. Their presets don’t require much tweaking as it is surprising how quickly you'll end up with that desired look. Depending on your picture (soft light, shade, dusk), your left with just bumping the exposure and nudging the white balance to give you that desired taste.

Verified buyer

Being primarily a black and white photographer, I have often have found it difficult to find presets and brushes that are useful to my workflow. Grayscale Essentials was a pleasant surprise in that it has presets which are useful and brushes that allow my workflow to go much more smoothly. One of the most important aspects that I have discovered from Sleeklens is their commitment to customer support. It's not what other product can we sell you, but is there anything we do to assist you in using the software you purchased. That's a sign of customer support that goes beyond many other software companies. Very pleased with this company.

All of the presents save a ton of time and give good results in the end.

Verified buyer

Although I haven't had much chance to play with them yet, I'm really impressed with these workflows. I now have the portrait pack as well as the Greyscale and couldn't be happier. I've used other companies in the past, but these are very easy to use and do exactly what they say on the tin (and more). Would like to see some more creative videos and tutorials on their use from Sleeklens.

Verified buyer

I was given presets for free by friends (all from other companies) and just did not like them. Something about Sleeklens presentation convinced be to purchase their B&W presets and I just loved them ! I then purchased my second set (Vintage Postcards) and couldn't be happier !

Verified buyer

I had only the pre-installed Lightroom presets in the past. These presets give me new ideas and they are intuitive to use.

Verified buyer

Awesome product, changed most of my images to something worthwhile printing. Saves a lot of time and brushes are excellent.

B&W workflow is the beauty. My B&W style photos got a new life.

outstanding selection of tonalities renderings that are subtle though well defining excellent set of presets; well worth the cost

These presets are perfect!! I recomend!

Even if I have not been using all the presets, I have found that several of them are quite useful for portrait black and white photography.
