Default Aperture 3 Plug-Ins

Sorry I meant Pre-sets.

As with LR3 & Bibble Pro 5 one of the first things I always do is go hunting for pre-sets. Although I just love the Curves function in A3 the pre-sets can be fun, so here are some sample pre-set adjustments. Which do you prefer ?

#1 is the original - no PP whatsoever.
#2 is NY Times (or something like that)
#3 is Inverted channels
#4 is the original with an auto Curves adjustment

The second shot is the one I like most.

Yeah the second one looks best, although the Inverted Channels one is interesting!

I like the fourth. The first has just a little bit to much saturation, but another shot with a different subject I would probably pick the second.

Did you upgrade from A3? If so what's your opinion.

Where do you get your presets from? Do you create them or find what others have used for their presets?
