Black Mood guaranteed. Loving all 3 included packs and the fact that I got an update recently 😂 wow! It made me write this review – Great service that I’ve never seen anywhere else before. Thank you!
Awesome! That exactly what I’m looking for!
My photos were taken to a whole new level. Love these presets, they give the photos a breathe of fresh air.

This preset is a gem like no other! No matter what the situation, you will be able to create a stunning picture. It’s a great price-performance combination and I’m looking forward to the next preset.
I got this pack for 50% off after testing the Substripe Essentials and I don’t regret it a second. All styles fit one or the other image and consistency is one of the truth from the description. Couldn’t be happier!

These three packs inside the Black Collection are usable for so many styles of photography. I love the Black Star presets especially for street, architecture and all kinds of urban. While you use them, I recommend you to study all settings to learn how you get this style. This will improve your whole editing and you can create your own 5-star preset in the future!

I have been a user of Noel Illinger’s (now team Substripe) styles for some time now and have always found them to be my go-to styles whenever I have wanted something a little dark, subdued and moody. They have a timeless quality of a photographic age gone by. They are easy to use with a rudimentary knowledge of Lightroom. No presets ever live up to the hype of ‘one-click and your done’ If you strive for perfection there is always a little tweak to be made here and there. Substripe styles are no exception but you get to where you want to be quicker than with most other offerings. Overall, I am very pleased with my purchases in the past and the Black Collection is the icing on the cake. Above all Noel is a great guy to deal with and responded to any questions I had about moving my licenses over to the new company promptly and courteously. I couldn’t ask for better service.
From beginning to the end I’m very satisfied with the service and results. Actually, there’s not much else that I need in my editing process now than the black star and the cinematics presets to be honest. For my car images and also for my trips with my buddies around the street, fantastic styles.

The only thing I can say is, wow these presets are awesome. The best presets I ever got for so cheap but with high value. The instructions and secrets helped me out a lot. I can only recommend it to people who search for something different and for those who want to know how to keep their images sharp for social media. It works very well.
Wow! I just tried it all out, the styles are fantastic. One of the best preset packs I’ve ever owned.
I’m very happy with the presets collection. The styles do what they promise and the customer support is very friendly. Can only recommend it!
