Free Lightroom Presets – Hawaii Five-O

This week’s preset comes from what has to be the coolest opening credits on TV… Hawaii Five-O.

Lightroom Print Presets – Multi-Photo Custom Grid

I’ve got a pretty cool Print module preset this time around. It utilizes the new Custom Print Package feature in Lightroom 3. It’s based on a 12×12 inch paper size. There’s room for 15 photos in it which makes a really nice way to show off some travel photos or even a portrait session. Here’s how it works: First download and import the new print template.
