They are offering a presale/prerelease value for $70 to stakeholders. But the money is for 24 "adjustments". Any ideas that this is not just an "instagram" treatment?

If you add it to your cart, you will get an itemized list of the adjustments, with links to an explanation of each one. Here is a list:

Adjustment Pro Pack
Reduce Noise
Precision Contrast
Color Theme
HSL Color Tuning
Black and White
Sharpen
DeHaze
Bloom
Focal Blur
Edge Exposure
Radiance
Smudge
Abstraction
Texture

I do not know what each one does, etc. just passing the info along. It's an a la carte way to purchase processing tools above and beyond the free ones in Studio.

Thanks, Kirk.

I might have known you'd come through. this is what it felt like. An instagram type quickset. I suspect i can do all that with the suite of their plugins I already have.

thanks for doing the research.

Been following the thread. Thanks Kirk, good info.

My question is / was whether they were going to go the way of ON1 and roll all of their existing suite of effects into one large raw package.

It doesn't look like it in this iteration, but that doesn't mean their long term plans are not so.

I don't see anything in that list that interest me, and as far as raw conversion goes, acr with the 2012 engine is just fine for me.

I ain't going to spring for it, discounted or not.

Thanks for taking the time.

The impression I get is that the Studio app is a free, very basic image editing "studio" - they give you some free controls like exposure and white balance adjustment. Then, you pay on an a la carte basis, for tools like sharpening, noise reduction, clarity, etc. - these get added in as modules to the free studio app, giving you more advanced controls. I imagine they will also sell filters or looks presets, and packs of them, but the looks or presets may require certain tools, which you may have to buy as well.

So, some of it may be like instagram filters, but much of the Pro pack are tools that are beyond the very basic set in the free studio app.
