1888AD is the newest Tribe creation. Distinct from our other products, 1888AD is inspired by a deep love for analog photography. The presets and profiles are designed to reflect the clean, timeless spirit of film. 1888 pays homage to the year in which Kodak released their first commercially successful box camera for roll film, and forever changed the way we capture memories. This brand is wonderfully suited to hybrid film /digital shooters, and for anyone who reveres the enduring beauty of analog photography. We are 1888AD... Analog inspired Digital Presets and Creative Profiles.

After Purchase, please refer to the included Install Guide for installation. The presets for Lightroom 7.5 are now in .XMP format, and are installed in a different manner versus the previous .LRTEMPLATE files. 


What are Profiles?

Profiles themselves are not new to Lightroom or Camera Raw, but with the latest release of Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw we can now “interact” with them by using the new Profile Browser!  The 1888AD Presets and Profiles are designed so that they work in unison with one another, however the profiles can also be used independently or with other presets. (Just think of the combination possibilities!)  

Creative Profiles now utilize 3D Look Up Tables or LUTs (a complex series of color grading) and apply an effect without changing the slider values, they work differently than presets in that a majority of the settings are embedded into the profiles themselves rather than relying on adjustment sliders. Think of them as a layer that can be applied on it’s own or “over top” of a preset, and controlled with “Amount” or intensity slider!  

The 1888AD Profiles have been made from scratch and tested on thousands of images from photographers all over the world. They are developed using tonal gradients designed to enhance your images while maintaining beautiful skin tone.*

(*Achieving great skin tone is also dependent upon proper lighting, exposure and white balance.)
