Thank you for mentioning my presets. Since you brought them up here I might as well talk about them a little since there is a bit more to it than just presets.
What is customCHROME:
It all began back in the day when Lightroom presets became super popular and tried to mimic films. Of course I wanted the awesome film look that, say Jose Villa (http://josevillablog.com) produces with his Fujifilm 400H, but since I was using RawTherapee exclusively I was neither able to use Lightroom presets, nor did RawTherapee (at the time) have equivalents for most Lightroom features. So I decided I'd need to reverse engineer the look I wanted from scratch.
It was a lot of work, and although I am still trying to work out how on earth @patdavid achieved his amazing Fujifilm 400H rendition in his LUT, the process taught me a huge lot about what it is that make films so well liked; while at the same time I also noticed the online photography industry, almost in its entirety outsorcing processing to presets like VSCO, Mastin labs, and so on. I mean the presets are good, some are great, but they teach little about what makes the images look good, a lot of them rely on colour LUTs for the more complex colour modifications, in Lightroom they'd be icc or dpp profiles I believe, and most people wouldn't really look even if everything was showing. The preset producers are interestes in making their sales and they are and it's all good, yet my point is that it creates the niche for customCHROME, as an innititative to raise awareness about what makes pretty edits pretty and educate those who care.
So basically, when it is ready, ideally I would like customCHROME to contain more than just presets but detailed tutorials on many of them explaining what they do and how and it's good for. Open source is awesome and it is a powerful tool against ignorance, we're just not quite there yet and the journey is exciting.
What there is:
As of today, there are 4 sets up on the page (http://stefanchirila.com/customchrome)
CC1: a set intended to apply a nice look to images shot in JPG
CC2: "the classics" a collection of what I considered to be classic image looks
Tribute 400H: contains my best efforts at recreating the Fujifilm 400H look and feel (yes I am obsessed with this one). I need to update this one with my newer work on it.
StefanCHROME: in an excess of self-absorbedness I named this one after myself. It contains some edits I use on a regular basis.
Worth noting: These were all made with RawTherapee 4.2.1 as found in the Debian 8 Jessie (https://packages.debian.org/jessie/rawtherapee) and the colour curves act very differently these days. I noticed this recently in this discussion: https://discuss.pixls.us/t/debian-and-rawtherapee/2506/5
What is still missing:
Tutorials. Posting pretty presets, as useful as it may be in a world where all good presets seem to be for Lightroom, is not fulfilling customChrome's mission statement by itself alone. So I need to get going and come up with some writeups about them.
A proper description as to how to get them to work on Windows/MAC (as in where the presets folder is on those OSes).
An updated version of the existing presets to compensate for the different curve behaviour.
Honestly, any feedback is very appreciated! I am so out of this world flattered that someone considered my presets worthy of this forum. I have a lot of respect and admiration for all Open Source contributors, and to be, even to a little extent, one of you guys, is huge to me. Long live the Libre revolution
