the only time I do find myself using a preset is for a specific trendy instagram cell phone image look.
No, I process my images so they look realistic and show detail. no one wants that.I thought you WERE the trend setter on instagram.
Open a good base picture you have taken and start moving the sliders... make your own pre-sets by learning what they do, and what changes are made.
I suggest paying close attention to the Clarity, Saturation & Vibrancy area when messing around, that's where much of the magic happens. Also, contrast.
