Presets – Retouching Brushes

Today I’ve got another round of Adjustment Brush presets for you in Lightroom 2. These presets focus on some of the basic retouching effects you can achieve with the Adjustment Brush. Now, before you download them, keep one thing in mind. These aren’t for high-end fashion retouching. Photoshop is still the best place for that. They’re geared for some quick enhancements that you can do right in Lightroom when you just...

Presets – Darkening Brush Presets

Since Lightroom 2 came out, I’ve realized a whole new area for presets has emerged – Adjustment Brush presets. If you haven’t seen it yet, go to the Adjustment Brush tool in LR 2 and click on the Effect list. There’s a few defaults at the top but you may notice one called Soften Skin which is actually a custom preset. Well, it got me thinking about brush presets I use a lot so I’ve started coming up with...

At the end of the video I mentioned creating Develop...

Right now, there are 3 levels of edge darkening. But I...

Presets – Soft Dreamy Effect

First off, I wanted to give a great-big-huge thank you to everyone who posted comments on my photo update from last week. I expected a few people to reply and I got over 100 comments. What really struck me though, was not the number of comments but the number of you who actually took the time to really look at the photos and leave very insightful comments. You guys rock! OK, last week I promised a new preset that dealt with an effect...

Presets – Matt's Dramatic Sky presets

Well gang, it’s time for another round of presets. This time around I’m following up Matt’s Deep Blue Sky presets with Matt’s Dramatic Sky presets. Most of the presets I’ve used that dealt with enhancing skies usually just enhanced the color. But I’ve put a few other things in these presets that specialize in making the clouds look better too. You can use ‘em in photos with no clouds, but...
