Flypaper Textures

The Lake House


If like us, you’re just back from holidaying  you’ll also have reams of new images to process. So with this in mind we’ve come up with a new idea, to help you on your way we’ll give you a head start with our Nik Color Pro free Fly Preset download, just hit this LINK and you’ll have the preset I created yesterday when I processed this English holiday picture, it’s a good all-round preset, and it compliments our Flypaper Tin edges beautifully. If you guys approve and we get some nice feedback, we’ll then be encouraged to share more of our Nik Presets!

The images location was from the grounds of Leeds Castle in Kent, where I spent a luxurious night after driving from France, taken quite late, well after the park had closed to outside visitors and thus had lovely clear views, stunning golden hour sunlight and plenty of tame peacocks to capture!

Processing was simple, you’ll see I cloned out some clutter from what I assumed was the Pump House, ran it through the Nik color efex pro preset I’ve given you and then applied the Tintype 18 texture  @ Screen 44%

How to import presets and/or recipes in Color Efex 4
Open Color Efex Pro 4 from the host application that you use (Photoshop, Lightroom or Aperture).
Click “Recipes” in the left panel.
At the bottom of the Recipes menu, click “Import.”
Select the “.np” preset files you have saved and import them.
These presets will then be located in the “Imported” section.

Tintype 18 is from the Tintype Edges Pack

    Love it! thank you!

  4. Thanks very much for the preset — it’s lovely. I had to add a step to the instructions, though — I had to get rid of the .txt file, which involved going into the Windows settings and unchecking a box so the file extension would show. Once I did that, it loaded up fine. More, please!

    I have tried numerous ways to get the txt file off. I am a Mac and usually don’t have a problem loading presets. Open to suggestions.
