The Fader, the preset opacity slider plugin for Lightroom!
Instead of the boring static “100% only” presets, you can now dynamically choose how much of the preset you want to apply. And of course, The Fader goes up to 150%, so you can over-process your over processing!
The Fader, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom plugin for applying develop presets with custom opacity. Starting with Lightroom 5.0, The Fader can also apply faded develop settings from snapshots!
The Fader works by dynamically applying a “faded preset”, it does not modify any of your existing presets. The Fader computes new values internally and moves all the sliders for you.
Above you can see example of results produced by The Fader. First image is Lightroom’s “Yesteryear 1” preset, following pictures have “General – Zeroed” preset applied on top of Yesteryear, with 33%, 67% and 90% opacity.
To fade a preset, you simply select the preset folder from the left pull down menu, and then the actual preset from the right side pull down menu. After selecting the preset, simply adjusting the opacity slider will change its strength. The photo is updated immediately to reflect the new settings.
The Fader is distributed as shareware, you can freely try it. The only limitation is a time delay screen before starting The Fader, the registration ($10+24% VAT in EU) will remove the time delay.
