It's Preset Day!

Welcome back to another edition of Matt’s Free Presets. This week the preset is one that I’ve been experimenting with a lot lately. I call it Vividity. It’s not really a word but I think it should be so I’ve named my preset in hopes that millions of people will follow and eventually force the dictionary gods (whoever they may be) to add it.
