Presets Change the Colour Rendering in Surprising Ways

Exactly, that’s why the shortlist is so important. Building that short list is four or five hours work (not necessarily all at once), but once it’s done, working with PhotoLab is much, much faster and your results will be more consistent/better. At this point, I know all of my shortlist Renderings very well and can judge how to best adjust an image to make it shine with any given (shortlist) rendering.

Many thanks Alec. Great tips and the time required is reassuringly short.
