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...

It's Preset Day!

Welcome back to another edition of Matt’s Free Presets. This week the preset is one that I’ve been experimenting with a lot lately. I call it Vividity. It’s not really a word but I think it should be so I’ve named my preset in hopes that millions of people will follow and eventually force the dictionary gods (whoever they may be) to add it. Anyway, dreams aside, the preset does just what you think it does. It...

Monday Presets

Happy Monday to you. I’ve got an interesting group of presets for you today but first I wanted to thank my friend Jeff Revell of Photo Walk Pro for hosting a photo walk in Washington DC this past Saturday. I had an absolute blast and met some really great people. OK, on to the preset (or should I say presets). You’re going to love this one. Not more then me though, because I’m taking the week off (from presets that...

Preset Day – White Web Gallery

I’ve been creating a lot of Develop presets lately and I wanted to shift to another area – the web. I’ve already put my dark web gallery preset up on this site but I thought I’d share my white web gallery one too. And when I say white, I mean white. See, the Lightroom defaults for white had some odd areas and colors (at least I thought) in them that didn’t go with the theme. So I’ve adapted them and...

It's Preset Day Again (City Nights Effect)

Hey everyone. I’m back this week with another new preset. First I’ve got to thank everyone who has ordered the Layers book so far. If you want to see a funny photo, my friend RC took this photo of me signing books. I was literally buried. When I came up with the idea to sign a copy for anyone who ordered from Kelby Training’s website I had no idea I’d get this many. I was totally shocked but totally honored at...

Preset Monday – Lomo Arigato (Mr. Roboto)

It’s a brand new week and I’m kicking it off with a really cool preset. First off though, I have to thank everyone who pre-ordered my Photoshop Layers book. I posted about it on Friday and got a few responses from folks that pre-ordered. However, the pre-order sales I saw over the weekend showed me that a lot more of you actually ordered then commented here and I just wanted to say thanks – so Thanks! Now for the...
