Professional photographers from around the world have helped us create a comprehensive group of presets that give your images amazing enhancements in a single click. These live previews offer the easiest and quickest way to get great results.
You can use the presets as a starting point for your image editing. Start by selecting the Presets Button and the Category you wish to view. Next use the Up and Down arrow keys to scroll through each preset. Real time rendering speeds up your preset viewing. By moving the tab on the Amount slider located within the Preset name you can lower the intensity that the filter effect has on your image.
Intensify CK contains three areas to access presets.
Default are presets created by the Skylum team.
Favorites are the presets that you tagged with a star. Use these presets to create a consistent edit across a series of images.
Custom presets are presets created by you and other users.
Architecture. Strong clarity and structure effects to help bring out details and texture.
Black and White. Desaturated images with a variety of contrast and detail information to make beautiful monochrome images.

Detail Enhancement. Increased clarity, detail, and sharpness to bring out the details in an image.
Image Tune. Presets to bring out the natural beauty of your image with enhancements ranging from boosted colors to shadow saturation.

Here are few examples of the same photo with different presets applied.
Once you select a preset, you have the ability in the Adjust panel to modify that preset to fit your specific image needs by using slider adjustments for Exposure, Pro Contrast, Structure, Details, Micro Sharpness, Vignette, and Opacity.
Within each section are a variety of sliders that control everything from highlight and shadow detail to softness and luminosity. Every preset can function as the jumping off point for your own customization with user-friendly tools and one click adjustments.
Create a custom preset.
To create your own presets click the “Create a Preset” button at the bottom of the adjustment panel. A dialog box will pop up asking you to name your preset and to Add or Cancel. Once you've added the preset, it will appear in the Custom tab of the Presets panel.
