Happy Friday Eve, friends!
Today I’m making this short and sweet. As someone who edits and also provides editing tools for others in the form of presets, it’s important for myself and my clients to have options and also get the most out of their investments. One thing I LOVE about presets is how easy they can be. One thing I hate about them is how they don’t work with every single photo. So if you edit on Adobe Lightroom Desktop, this tool is for you.
I discovered The Fader by Capture Monkey about 5 years ago and I’ve been using it ever since. It’s basically an opacity control plugin which allows you to manage the intensity of the preset you are applying.

For me, this tool is amazing because sometimes the settings are perfect but I just need to bring the whole entire party down by 60%. Instead of having to go in and tweak everything multiple times or try to find a way to bring the preset or edit down, I can literally just bring the opacity to the level I prefer by adjusting the dial.
This is honestly one of the BEST 10 bucks I have ever spent. I’m all about working smarter and I will invest in any and everything that will elevate my ability to perform efficiently. Check out The Fader and let me know what you think!
