Presets – The Ultimate Fighter Lightroom Preset

Last week’s “Twilight Inspired” presets had me admitting that I like vampire shows. This week you’re getting a look into another favorite of mine – The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).

Presets – Lightroom iPad Export Settings

I was loading some photos on my iPad this past weekend, and it led me down the path of figuring out what the best Lightroom photo export settings are for it.
