    I am really enjoying the Portrait Essentials bundle. It’s easy to use and the effects are very powerful. I’d say some of the presets are a bit too extreme in changing the photo too much but that’s where the brushes come in for more subtle changes!

    The presets work really well if you know when to use them. Even if you don’t, it’s easy to see them in your preview window by hovering over each one to see the effect. I thoroughly enjoy using the brushes to touch up my clients, its simple and quick.

    I am beginner and am enjoying the workflows thoroughly. I have both the landscape and the portraits essential collection. I get a lot of appreciation for the way my pictures have transformed into professional looking after I started using these workflows. I will strongly recommend these collections.

    The presets and brushes in this set are phenomenal. I went back through some of my previous photographs and ran them through this set and they looked significantly better. I would most definitely recommend getting this bundle if you take any portraits!
