Today we’re sharing our Sleeklens presets review and sharing our thoughts on a pretty awesome workflow.

Just so you know

Sleeklens provided me with a copy of these presets to try for free, but I am not being paid to endorse them or their products.

If I think something is awesome, I’m gonna share with y’all (which these presets totally are!). But if they’re not quite so awesome, I’m gonna share that with y’all as well.

Sleeklens Presets Review – Strike a Pose Workflow

This strike a pose bundle comes with 69 portrait presets, and 62 portrait brushes. Sleeklens makes it super easy to edit your whole image with one click (by using a preset), then fine tuning everything by using the brushes. These presets allow you to adjust tones, improve color and contrast, and bring back lost details in your image.

As with any editing in Lightroom, it is all non-destructive editing. This means you can always revert back to the original image if you make a mistake or want to start over.

The Real Deal

I’ve had the pleasure of playing with these presets for a while now, and really dig them.

I think that the editing possibilities with these programs are endless, especially since they have the ability to stack presets/brushes.

There are a lot of awesome presets, but I tend to find myself gravitating to a few specific ones over and over:

The brush options are pretty amazing as well. You can go in and do some serious beauty retouching because they include things like remove green tint from skin, add blush, shine for lips, etc. The brush option allows for much more precise fine tuning of portraits. As the image below shows, these are just a few of the brushes included in the bundle.
