Using presets to establish and enhance your photographic style

Many applications offer presets, and some let you preview them. 
Here DxO Optics Pro shows some of the built-in options for processing one of my images.Whether you are an “art” photographer or not, your work may well have a style of its own, defined by how you shoot and how you process images. Or your editors or clients might want a particular look or style in the images you submit to them. Either way, presets can be a valuable tool in helping you not only maintain your own style, but process images repeatably and efficiently. I’ve provided some tips on using presets in some of the most popular image processing programs in an article I wrote for Datacolor’s blog.
