Note: At the moment we only have presets available for Damage. We are working on new presets for Phenomena, Tweak and Aura and these will be available shortly.The Damage presets are only compatible with Creative Cloud - they will not work in older version of Creative Suite such as CS6, CS5, etc. These presets are however cross-platform (Mac and Windows) and forwards-compatible so they will in future versions.
