The basic presets in Quick Lux were designed to be inspired by various types of film rather than try to emulate a specific type of film exactly. This isn’t an attempt to be a film simulator, but rather take cues from the days of celluloid and use them as a base for your digital processing. It also includes a look based on modern digital photography too.
The set takes inspiration from 5 main types of popular sources of photography. Negative Film, Positive Slide Film, Special High Saturation Transparency (Chrome) Film, Black and White Film, and modern Digital Vivid looks. It also includes a bonus bleached bypass look. Each of these categories comes with several variations of look, and within each look are variations to help speed up your workflow with options to push the shadows, pull the highlights or both.
Quick Lux also includes a copy of ”Thomas’s Toolbox”. This is a set of tools to quickly apply common adjustments to an image and Thomas uses these himself in his daily photography workflow. It contains everything from commonly used Grads to vignettes, to quick setups for lens correction and sharpening.
