While editing some baby photos I noticed an obvious yet hither-to unnoticed (by me, drrr) trick.

To achieve an heirloom look I just dragged down 2 of the the 3 sliders in "Presence".

Clarity and Vibrance both dragged way left - also Recovery dragged to +33.

I just thought I'd share the tip. I've saved it as a "user preset" called "extreme softening".

It brought this - a relatively plain shot with some focusing issues and ISO 1600 showing it's roughness a bit:

to this - something I'm tempted to put in my little jeweled heirloom frame:

See all the things we learn here...

If I had a nickle for every time someone wrote "there" when they mean "their"...
