Frequently Asked Questions
Can the Signature Preset (Desktop) be tweaked to match my personal style?
Absolutely. When we created this preset, we designed it in a way that didn’t max out any of the Lightroom slider adjustments. We wanted our users to have as much control as possible, especially when working with extreme lighting situations. Once the preset is applied, most photographers only make standard adjustments to the exposure, temperature and tint. You also have the ability to tweak the HSL sliders, utilize split toning, remove lens correction or adjust the grain to your liking. Additional edits can be made with the included Enhancers.
When applying the Signature Preset (Desktop), what do you recommend adjusting first?
After applying the preset to your RAW, unedited image, we recommend adjusting the exposure first, followed by fine-tuning the temperature and tint. Then, depending on lighting, we suggest bringing in more blacks, adjusting the saturation level and contrast as needed.
What camera was the Signature Preset (Desktop) designed for?
Noble was originally created using images from Canon bodies, but has been thoroughly tested on images from Sony, Nikon, and Fuji cameras with great results!
What film stock inspired the Signature Preset (Desktop)?
The Noble Signature was mostly inspired by Fuji 400H photos taken on medium-format film cameras.
Is this Desktop Preset just for Wedding Photographers?
Noble was created by wedding photographers to be a versatile solution for an array of lighting situations. It can can be used by anyone who has a DSLR camera: portrait photographers, bloggers, landscape photographers, commercial photographers, and parents of really cute kids!

Does the Signature Preset (Desktop) work on both RAW and JPEG files?

Can the Signature Preset (Desktop) be used with Photoshop?
Yes, you can use the Noble Preset on RAW images in Photoshop using ACR (Adobe Camera Raw).

Does the Signature Preset (Desktop) work on indoor or flash reception photos?
Yes! Just like any preset, you will have to make slight adjustments to accommodate different lighting situations (exposure, temperature and tint). We’ve tested the preset on thousands of reception and flash images and have found it applies beautifully and consistently. If you need additional help achieving the look you want with your particular flash set-up, we would highly recommend utilizing the Enhancers included in your purchase.
What program do I need to use the Desktop Presets?
The preset is compatible with Adobe Lightroom 4 or later, Adobe Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera RAW.
Will Noble presets work for me if I don’t shoot film?
The Signature preset was created by film photographers but it can be used by anyone who shares an appreciation for the incredible color palette and luminous skin tones offered by film. Hybrid photographers have raved about its easy-to-match capabilities, but the preset produces beautiful film-like results for dedicated digital photographers as well.
