Lightroom Video – Fooling Lightroom Presets To Create Cool Effects

Hey everyone. Got a new video for you. A question or comment I hear quite a bit about is the fact that you can’t save Adjustment Brush settings into a preset in Lightroom. Now, don’t confuse this with saving adjustment brush presets – that you can do (say you have a favorite brush setting for softening skin or whitening eyes). But if you paint something on to the photo you can’t save it. There is a...

Free Lightroom Presets – Wedding Day

Here’s an update to some older presets. See, I’m always dissecting “looks” that I find in photos, and I’ve seen this one for a while now. I named it Wedding Day because that’s mostly what I see the effect used on – wedding photos shot outdoors in the afternoon. It’s got a very subtle warm-reddish look to it with a slight vignette.

Not just among the pros, but the more I see people use Lightroom, the more I think it’s for anyone that’s into photography – regardless of your skill level....

Free Lightroom 4 Presets – Vignettes and Edge Darkening

Hi everyone. One of the things that just about all of my photos get is a vignette to darken the edges. It really helps bring in focus on your photos, and makes a great finishing touch. It’s also perfect for a preset because it’s something that’s very repeatable, and the settings stay the same (or almost the same) for each time I use it. You’ll see 3 different versions here – Light, Medium, and Strong....
