Lightroom Video – Colorizing Presets

First off, I wanted to let you know I’ve been posting over at Google+ as well. If you haven’t started an account yet, give it a try. It seems to be a great place for photographers. And Circle me while you’re at it :) A while back I created some presets that colorize specific colors in a photo. I wanted to do a quick video today, though, to show you why I create several versions of each one. As you’ll see in the video, presets in Lightroom offer a great added benefit of live previews without even applying the preset itself. It’s something we don’t get if we were to create presets, say, in Adobe Camera Raw or even any of the presets that come with Photoshop.
Also, here’s the link to the Colorizing presets that I mention in the video. Hope you enjoy!

  2. Holy buckets! This is a great tip Matt, thank you. Love this concept, it really starts the creative juices flowing being able to so quickly fan through these color combinations so quickly.
