Did it hurt? Falling from heaven?

Kindred Essential is our flagship preset and the entire reason Kindred exists. If you use nothing else in your editing kit, Essential will be there for you! With a strong focus on skin tone elevation, essential excels in ideal lighting situations and can even do the heavy lifting in other lighting scenarios as well. 

You will receive our base film emulation preset provided in original and the "softer version" preset along with 10 powerful quick adjust buttons for the best skin tones, color and detail retention.

This is THE preset everyone is talking about!

KINDRED PRESETS IMAGE TESTING SERVICE

If you'd like to have your images tested with Kindred Presets before you buy, please send us a link with no more than 5 RAW images and let us know which preset you would like tested on your work!

THESE STEPS MUST BE FOLLOWED FOR YOUR IMAGES TO BE TESTED

1. Upload a folder with no more than 5 RAW images to the cloud service of your choice. Make sure you have your privacy settings to where we can view them without needing to request access.
2. Title the folder with your name.
3. Create a shared link and drop it in the contact form.
4. If your files are in JPEG format, you MUST tell us in your submission or your images will not be edited.
5. You must fill out every question on the submission form.

If you do not complete the steps above, your editing request will be ejected from the queue without notice. 

We highly recommend you send RAW file format images for the testing process unless you edit in JPEG exclusively. While the presets work on both RAW and JPEG formats, we prefer to show you the full range of ability that Kindred has on a RAW image when possible. We also recommend that you send us photos from varying light and locations so you can see the full breath of the presets capabilities on your work.

Test edits are done twice a week, if there is a desired aesthetic or editing style, please note that for us, otherwise you will receive a basic panel edit. Should you need a faster look at your images, our Facebook group is highly responsive to test edits and is happy to help as well. 

Thank you!

Your image testing request has been received, please allow us time to review your request and add you to our queue. Currently we are completing requests on Tuesday and Thursdays.
