Presets – My New Auto Fix Preset

It’s time for another preset day and I thought I’d give away a brand new one that I’ve been working on. This preset is the one I apply to my photos as I’m importing them. Now, if you’ve watched any of my earlier Lightroom videos (from earlier in 2007) you may recall that I never applied a preset to my photos as I imported them. That’s changed as of late. I’ve been working on this preset and...

Presets – Deep Blue Sky

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’ve got a brand new set of presets for you this week targetted directly at blue skys (or lack of). Here’s the deal: There’s 3 different presets in this one each making the sky a deeper blue. Go ahead and develop your photo first (Exposure, Recovery, etc…) and then apply this preset. But there’s a couple of things to note: 1) You’ve got to have some degree of blue in your sky...

Presets – The Surreal Edgy Look

It’s funny how things happen sometimes. Just when I was trying to decide which preset I would share this week I got a email from some one asking how I accomplished that gritty/HDR-looking/surreal/dramatic effect. If you recall from a while ago I had made a video on this technique and it became wildly popular. Well, I went to point them to this website to download the preset and realized I never did a preset for this technique...

Preset Monday & Photoshop World Week

Happy Monday! The preset info is below but here’s some quick Photoshop World info as well. This week is Photoshop World in Orlando, FL. It’s always nice when I can drive to the conference on Monday and back again on Friday. Plus, I’m really excited as my wife and kids will probably make it over for a day or two. Believe it or not, my kids have never seen me teach. Anyway, here’s a recap of what I’ll be...

It's an Easter Chocolate Hangover Preset Day

You guys probably thought I wasn’t going to make it today didn’t you (you have to read Friday’s post to know what I’m talking about). But I’m here, chocolate hangover and all. This preset is a little different from the rest since it’s an Identity Plate. These plates are basically ways to get custom graphics (and text) into Lightroom to use in the Web or Print modules. Well I’ve created a...
