Preset Day – White Web Gallery

I’ve been creating a lot of Develop presets lately and I wanted to shift to another area – the web. I’ve already put my dark web gallery preset up on this site but I thought I’d share my white web gallery one too. And when I say white, I mean white. See, the Lightroom defaults for white had some odd areas and colors (at least I thought) in them that didn’t go with the theme. So I’ve adapted them and made my own. Oh yeah, you’ll notice that they tend to work better on “lighter” subject matter (flowers, high key images, kids, etc…). You probably don’t want to throw a shoot from a football game up on this one. Well, you could but it’ll probably look really odd. Finally, there’s two altogether (HTML and Flash) and you can download them and use them all you’d like. Happy Presetting!

  1. Love this. Thanks Matt! Not that you are still taking ‘orders’.. but I thought of another good preset.. Smashing mag had a link to these “HDR” images last week.. they look pretty awesome.

    It would be cool to have a preset that does something like that with just one picture. ?? There is debate on that page over whether they are “HDR” images.. but personally.. HDR or not.. I love the surreal look to some of them. Helps make something out of pictures from a blah day.

  2. Matt,
    Sometimes I get an error message while installing your presets.
    It says: “The preset file was the wrong type of preset”. Please advise what I can do as I really want to use these presets.
    Thanks in advance for you help.

  3. Hi Matt. I’ve been enjoying your presets for some time now. I tried to make a web gallery using this preset and it works well.

    My question is how can I upload this gallery on the net knowing that I use google page creator. I can’t create folders in my google website, so when I upload the html files and images everytime, I can’t see the images when I view my html page because the images are not in the original folders that were created when lightroom exported them.

    I am not sure if google page creator has an ftp upload to bypass this problem. Any idea or is it not possible to upload galleries in google page creator?

  4. For those who get an error, maybe you are installing the preset in the developper module instead of the web module. Because it worked fine for me.

  8. I came across your site today after only recently learning about presets. I am obviously a very novice photographer. But a friend bought me Lightroom, because she loves my photos. So I have been downloading presets as fast as my hands can type. :)

    Anyhow – is there any possibility of updating this link to your friend to the above White Web Gallery? It sounds very interesting, and I would love to play around with it and my photos. Thank you for all you do for this community!
