Let's start with ADOBE CAMERA RAW

Step 1.
Install your profiles using the installation guide provided in the zip of the Profile Pack you've downloaded.


Step 2.

Drag and drop or open a RAW image in Photoshop. A Camera RAW window will appear

Alternatively, if you're opening a JPG file, find ''Camera RAW Filter'' under drop down menu that reads ''Filter'', by selecting ''Camera Raw Filter''. A Camera RAW window will appear like when opening a RAW photo.

Step 3.
In order to find your Profile click on the ''4 squares'' shortcut, next to the Profile drop down menu. A Profile menu will appear listing all of the default Adobe Profiles including the ones you've installed.

Step 4.
Navigate to your Smilyanic Profile Packs and choose a desired look!


Step 5.
Using the Amount/Opacity slider you can control the strength of the effect, and by clicking on the star the Profile you wish will be put in the Favorites menu.

Step 6.
Once you chose a profile, and have set it's opacity using the amount slider - press 'Close'. You will be returned to the native Camera RAW window.

Step 7.
You may want to bring out the full potential of the image by further adjusting the colors, contrasts, shadows..etc., specially tailoring the look of your image. Luckily that's very easy!

Fine tune your photo, by adjusting the sliders highlighted in the blue box. In the orange box, you can still see the Profile you've chosen along with its 'Amount' settings.
The red box and the arrows point to the most important menus where you can also continue tuning the colors of your image. We're done!


It's Lightroom Time!
