Question About White Balance 'Presets' ?

Hi all, new here and hoping someone can answer what may be a very simple query.

I won’t pretend to be an expert - I’m teaching myself RawTherapee processing by trial and error, been at it for a year or so now and starting to get a good feel for how it works and getting the results I want.

The other night I swear I somehow accessed a whole load of ‘White Balance’ ‘presets’ or ‘templates’ outside of the standard selection in the edit function. They appeared on a left drop down menu a bit like the existing options for e.g. Fluroescent or Lamp when you hover over the arrow ‘lookup’, however there were a lot more built-in options including one for ‘extreme’ or ‘heavy’ shadow which I selected for an interior shot with a lot of shadow and it immediately adjusted the image to demarcate the layers of shadow very effectively.

Apologies if this is a common subject and well known, but for the life of me despite trying every possible way of getting back there I’m completely unable to now find out what/how I did this. I can only see the standard White Balance options. I know I didn’t imagine it, and perhaps it wasn’t actually a White Balance function but somewhere else altogether but if anyone has any idea what I’m talking about I’d be very grateful for some pointers!


The White Balance tab comes with a bunch of presets to be found under the Method pull-down button. I’m assuming that those aren’t the ones you are looking for.

That leaves one other possibility that I know of:


These can be found in the edit window under Processing Profiles. These aren’t WB specific presets though. But I’m presuming for the moment these are the ones you ran into.
