Updated version for Reshade 3.0 here : Silken preset (ReShade 3.0) for Dark Souls 3
This subtle preset adds in depth to the image and soften it, the lighting is more natural, and colors are a bit more vivid and feels less detached, it counterbalance the image that can be dull at times.
It works well in every conditions but I haven't tested the DLCs yet.
Performance-wise it shouldn't be a problem.
The added darkness should require the torch for some places.
If you don't like the darkness or the Depth of field I've added alternative files (which you can mix)
It uses Reshade 2.0

The brightness in game should be calibrated, not for my preset in particular but because by default it's too high. Maybe just this can be enough to your tastes
All my screenshots are taken with in-game brightness set to 0 or 1, they can seem dark, especially if not in fullscreen.
Copy the ReShade
in \steamapps\common\DARK SOULS III\Game
, where DarkSoulsIII.exe is.
If you don't want the added darkness or the Depth of field, you just have to pick the version of your choice AFTER having installed the main files. Enter one of the directory marked with "=== ===" and copy the "ReShade" directory into your "Game" directory, it should ask you to replace the files, click Ok.
Steam overlay works fine with it.
There is only one slight issue to my knowledge : the interface and text can and will be blurry because of the DoF. You can temporarily deactivate the preset when navigating in the menus.
The yellow warning at start isn't important.
: Scroll Lock
Take a screenshot
: Print Screen
, but Steam works as well
LiftGammaGain, Tonemap, Curves
for the balancing of colors
for better and more realistic lights
to replace the poor default one
