Summary – Post-processing presets are common. Most programs have them. They are good either as they are or as a starting point for your adjustments. Also, they are wonderful for answering – “How did they do that” (open the preset & look at the settings).
Post-processing presets are ubiquitous
Just in B&W – LR, Nik, onOne, & Topaz
Combined, have nearly 300 presets
Use these as starting points & you have
Virtually limitless B&W options
Here’s a sampling
Two images each for the B&W presets from
LR, Nik, onOne, & Topaz
There are still about 300 that are not shown 😉

Sparks Lane in Cades Cove (Great Smokies NP)
For myself, I rarely use presets
Certainly not for more than a starting point
But – that’s just me 😉
