Dehancer has a ton of included film emulations and they are great. But I like many of them really shine with some adjustments. For example, the Portra 400 built in look is good but not quite all the way there. So I created 2 presets inspired by Kodak Portra 400 for Dehancer. They are both extremely similar.
Version 1 is a little brighter. This works well for buildings, cars, street scenes etc.
Version 2 has the exposure reduced a little which usually works better when people are in the frame.
Experiment with both and see what works best for your image.
Here are before and after samples of CB Portra400 V1:
