I’m a ReShade Expert. Have you ever wonder how to install ReShade and how to make a Preset?

This guide is for you. I’ll wake you through how to install it. There are also Presets that I have made with ReShade. The Shaders activated are shown with with the settings. For each game a before and after is featured. I’ll be adding Presets on a weekly basis.

Installing and Running Reshade

  • First go to https://reshade.me/

  • Then click download.

  • Run Reshade Setup Exe

  • Click Select Game. Find the Game .exe file that you want to install ReShade for.

  • Your game will likely use Direct x11. So select Direct3d 10+

  • Select the Shaders you want to install. I recommend installing only the following for starting off:

AdaptiveSharpen
Clarity
Curves
FakeHDR
HighPassSharpen
Levels
LumaSharpen
Click ok.
Launch the game.
Get into the actually game.
Press Shift+F2
Press the plus sign
Name the ReShade Preset
Click the boxes of the Shaders you want to apply
Click Apply
Then adjust.
Adjusting the numbers you click and drag with the mouse left to decrease, right to increase.

Note - Change the setting for bringing up ReShade to Shift+F3. Cause Shift+F2 The Default for ReShade will bring up Uplay.

The Division is one of my more minimal ReShade Presets but it does make the game look better than base.

Tomb Raider 2013

Note on this Preset even though I had Tint initial I don’t use it after seeing how it looked. So I didn’t include the settings for it. It is also not featured in the after ReShade Screenshot

BioShock/BioShock Remastered

This Preset can be used for both the normal BioShock or the Remastered one.

Note 1 Select Direct X9 API when installing ReShade for BioShock or BioShock Remastered.

Note 2 LOCATION of the BioShock .exe for the normal BioShock:

Note 3 LOCATION of the BioShockHD .exe for the Remastered BioShock:

Note 4 You need to change the Overlay Key for ReShade because Shift brings up a menu in BioShock and BioShock Rematerd. I suggest Z cause it isn’t used at all:
