AI Adaptive Presets:
The term Adaptive presets simply refers to presets that can adapt to the image they are applied to in some way. You may have heard about ISO Adaptive presets which V3 does support (see the video above), they adapt to your images by applying different settings based on how the preset has been trained to respond to an image’s ISO value. Macro Presets V3 will use the new Adobe Sensei AI-powered Masking features to select the subject in the image and apply the setting to enhance it.
In designing V3 AI Adaptive Presets, I combine professional retouching settings with AI-powered masking and apply changes to the subject in one click! They can also be synced across whole image sets and will compute appropriate masking for each image so your changes apply only where they’re supposed to, this is a great way to colour your focus bracketed images before stacking them!
For even more control, all of these presets are Amount Slider compatible. This means the strength of the preset can be adjusted after application directly from your preset panel without having to fiddle with anything in your masking panel!

Q: WHAT DOES THE “AI” MEAN IN THE PRESET?
A: These presets take advantage of the AI selection tools within Lightroom, they will attempt to select the subject and make adjustments to it. To learn more, watch the video above.
Q: WHAT IF I WANT TO ADJUST THE INTENSITY OF A PRESET?
A: In the top left-hand corner of the Develop module, there is a new “Amount” slider that you can slide to adjust the overall intensity of the preset. You can also go in and adjust each individual slider on the right-hand of the screen. This option is recommended for advanced users.
Q: I BOUGHT THE PRESET PACK BUT DON’T SEE AN EMAIL TO DOWNLOAD IT.
A: Please check the spam folder in your inbox. Allow 1-3 minutes for digital delivery. Alternatively, you can log into your account here and download the files.
Q: ARE THE PRESETS JUST FOR MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY?
A: No, as you can see from the two examples above you can use the macro presets 2020 on images other than macro.
Q: WILL MY IMAGE LOOK PERFECT IN ONE CLICK?
A: It’s possible with one click that your image might look perfect. More often than not, you will need to tweak your exposure since every image is slightly different. Keep in mind the goal of these presets is to give you a starting point with your editing. You will need to adjust exposure, sharpness, noise reduction, and the texture sliders for each individual image.
Q: HOW DO I INSTALL THE PRESETS INTO LIGHTROOM?
A: Click the plus (+) button that’s next to the presets folder in Lightroom CC. Next, find the zip file named Stewart Wood Macro Presets 2020 either on your desktop or in your downloads folder. Once installed, completely close out of Lightroom and then reopen it and the presets should all be there. (See the video above for more information)
Q: WILL THIS WORK ON MY STANDALONE VERSION OF LIGHTROOM CLASSIC?
A: No, you need to have been using Lightroom Classic CC (7.5 & up) in order to install these presets.
Q: WILL THESE PRESETS WORK ON JPEGS?
A: These presets were designed to specifically work with a RAW file format in the Adobe Color profile but they will work with other file formats.
Q: I DON’T SEE ALL OF THE PRESETS IN LIGHTROOM, DID THEY NOT IMPORT CORRECTLY?
A: First, make sure that you are editing a RAW file and not a JPEG image. Only select presets will be available when editing JPEG since these presets are designed to specifically work with RAW files. Click on a RAW file and everything should show up.
Q: CAN I RETURN THE PRESETS AFTER PURCHASING THEM?
A: The presets are non-refundable.
