Presets – Max Payne Movie Style

Howdy folks. I hope you had a great weekend – I know I did. I’m gearing up for the Lightroom 2 Live Tour in Covington, KY this Friday so make sure you come out and see me if you’re in the area. Now, on to the presets. I was watching the NFL playoff games yesterday and saw a commercial for the upcoming DVD release of the Max Payne movie. I caught a quick glimpse of a neat effect that I quickly tried to replicate in...

Presets – Single Photo Flush Left/Right preset

Time for another print preset. I was creating a photo book from Shutterfly.com the other day and came across this really neat idea for a preset. See, Shutterfly’s website allows you to customize the layout of each page in the photo book. Two of the choices placed the photo flush against the left or right side of the page. I saw it and immediately thought “Hmmmm, I wonder I can do that in Lightroom?”. After a few...

Presets – Lomo Arigato (Mr. Roboto) Version 2

I’ve updated one of the really popular presets here on the site – the Lomo effect. This one is based on a Lomography effect, hence the name “Lomo”. I know the weak Styx reference is pretty bad but whenever I here the name Lomo that’s what I think. Anyway, Lomography really has it’s roots in an old camera that produced a certain styled photo (you can read more about it here if you’d like). A...
