ADDENDUM: Please note that on January 4th, it came to my attention that DXO added partial presets for the seven new Fuji Digital films, the six new Cinematic films and Kodak EIR to the DXO Filmpack Designer - Color folder.
However, It appears that DxO’s versions may have additional options selected so they may not be as “partial” as the ones I uploaded. As a result some people may decide it is not necessary to install the Digital and Cinematic folders, included my download, in order to access presets for those 14 film types. I leave that up to individuals to decide if they want duplicate presets for those specific film types
I hope this hasn’t caused any confusion.
Before I continue I want to first give a huge thank you to @Joanna for creating the partial presets for the new film types DxO has added to Film Pack 6, I couldn’t find the time to create them while repairing my home after flood damage from Hurricane Ida in the USA at the beginning of September Happily those repairs are now close to completion.
Many of you are familiar with, and use, my 82 FilmPack 5 Elite film type partial presets. With the release of FilmPack 6 Elite there were 15 new presets added for a total of 97. They include 7 new Fuji film types in the new Digital Films folder, 6 new color effects film types in the new Cinematic Films folder, and 2 new film types in the Color Positive Films folder, including Kodak EIR and Impossible PX600 Silver Shade.
Impossible PX600 Silver Shade is a bit hard to characterize and even DxO had a problem deciding where to put it. In the Windows version they added it in with the Black & White film types and in the Mac version they added it in with the Color Positive film types. After a discussion with @joanna and DXO’s @StevenL, I have decided to leave Impossible PX600 Silver Shade.with the Color Positive film types, as implemented in the Mac version. This film type contains some very desaturated yellow/greens even though it may also appear to be monochrome depending on an image’s content. I guess that is why it is Impossible!
If you have installed the original four folders I created for the FilmPack 5 Elite presets, I suggest deleting those folders and replacing them with these six new folders. Not only have the folder names changed for FilmPack 6, but I also removed the TM symbols from the file names since a few people indicated that symbol created a file management issue for them.
Feel free to use and share with others. If the DXO staff finds these presets useful I give them permission to use them for any purpose except for sale as a separate plug-in. Of course, using these presets will only work in PhotoLab if FilmPack 6 Elite is installed. They will work the same in both the Windows and Mac version. Please let me know if there are any issues with them
Preset folders in the attached DXO FilmPack 6 Elite Presets zip file.
FilmPack - Black & White Films (38 presets)
FilmPack - Cinematic Films (6 presets)
FilmPack - Color Negative Films (16 presets)
FilmPack - Color Positive Films (28 presets)
FilmPack - Cross Processed Films (2 presets)
FilmPack - Digital Films (7 presets)
This first method is the “quick way”, .however, some of you may not be comfortable copying and pasting files “under the covers”. Unzip the six folders in the attached zip file to your hard drive and drag and drop them into the PhotoLab 5 preset folder. Here are the locations, originally supplied by @Pieloe.
Window 10 presets: %LocalAppData%\DxO\DxO PhotoLab 5\Presets
Mac OS presets: ~/Library/DxO PhotoLab v5/Presets
For those not comfortable using Method 1.
Unzip the six folders in the attached zip file to your hard drive .
In PhotoLab Elite, expand the Preset Editor. .
In the expanded Preset Editor click on the first icon, “new preset folder” . Rename it to a name similar to one of the six folders you’ve unzippped. Create 5 more preset folders and also rename them with similar names to the unzipped folders.
Select one of the preset folders you just created. Click on te “import” icon in the Preset Editor (2nd icon from the right) . Navigate to the unzipped folder with the similar name to the preset folder you just selected and select all the presets in that folder before clicking on the OK button. On a Windows machine you can do that by holding down the shift key as you select the presets. Click OK and all the selected presets will be copied to that folder.
Follow the previous step for the other five folders to complete the process
Don’t hesitate to contact me if you are having any difficulties with the presets. You can respond here or send me a private message.
I hope you find these presets useful!
