As you may or may not have noticed, I've taken a big step back from working with Silky Presets over the last two months. I've had a lot of family and personal adventures taking the front seat lately, but today I'm back and ready to rock your summer with a BIG SALE (40% off our ENTIRE STORE for 4 days!) and a preview of two new collections I hope to launch within the week! These have been in the works since March or April, but I haven't had the time to show them off until now. 


Lovers of the bright, vibrant contrasts in Shine 2, and admirers of the deep, rich shadows and tones of Sublime will find a lot to love in this collection. It combines the best of both for BIG, bold, vibrant edits with lots of contrast. Here are a few samples from STRONG:

Boom. A touch of warmth and a ton of depth! (Image by Dana Houston)

Reboot. Kicks it up three notches and makes highlights glow. (Image by Lucy Heyns)

Shotgun. Loosely based on the fan favorite BoosterShot, this one is awesome for warming cool images and adding depth to greens. (Image by Joy Blackburn)

Kick. A temperature-neutral enhancer with serious power! (Image by Dana Houston)

To show you some of the immense variety you get in the Strong Collection, here are 4 samples from Strong on one image (by Dana Houston)

HardFill (Neutral)

OhMy (warming, brightening)

Reboot (Slight warming)

WakeUp (warming, brightening) 


I wanted to do something really opposite of Strong for those of you who like sweet pastel edits for your summer images, and that was where I came up with the concept for Sugar. This collection will work a bit differently than the others; it will be sold only as a complete set, priced at $25, and includes 10 presets: 5 bases and 5 "toppings" (light leaks, basically.) You can combine the bases and toppings in any number of ways for beautiful pastel edits that work great on beach sessions, little girls in fields of flowers, babies, etc. Our testers have had fun with these, here are some samples: 

Sugar Cookie + Marmalade (image by Joy Blackburn)

Sugar Cookie + Whipped Cream (image by Heather Stech) 

Cheesecake + Lemon Wedge (image by Elizabeth Gleese)

So that's what's coming up, I plan to launch these two new collections on JULY 5TH. (SO SOON!) In the meantime, comment below with which collection is your must-have for summer, and I'll draw two winners to receive the collection of their choice! 

It's good to be back. :)
