It's Preset Monday! (on Tuesday again)

This time around I’ve got my take on a nostalgic-styled effect for the Develop module. This preset gives you that older look and is slightly tinted. I’ve also boosted the contrast and clarity significantly because that seems to be what was missing from some of the presets included with Lightroom. You’ll see that there are 2 presets included. Each one has a different level of color saturation. However, this preset...

I was getting the presets ready for this week and accidentally clicked on...

As I was looking through my photos I realized there were basically two types of sunsets – cool or warm. The cooler ones typically had lots of blues and some reds in them. The warmer ones had...

Presets – Contrast Boost

Here’s another set of presets right from my personal workflow. They’re all contrast-boosting presets (there are 5 of them). I use the Tone Curve to add contrast to my photos. I used to just click on the Point Curve options at the bottom of the Tone Curve panel (Linear, Medium Contrast, Strong Contrast) to see which one I liked the best. Finally I just created some presets for them, as well as a couple other settings,...
