    I love the BW presets. They make creating a monochromatic photo very easy. I reprocessed a few of my photos and was much happier with the results.

    These presets are awesome and have opened new bw visions for me. I’ve reprocessed some of my older files and been very pleased with the results. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to explore bw digital photography. Having the brushes is an bonus.

    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.

    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 !

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