Lightroom Presets – Sin City Look

Hey there! I hope everyone had a good hurricane-free weekend. My sympathies go out to anyone along the east coast that was affected by Irene. Before we get to the presets, don’t forget that I’m doing a free (LIVE) webcast tomorrow to celebrate the release of my Photoshop Compositing Secrets book. Scott Kelby is co-hosting it with me. I’ll spend about an hour going over various techniques and concepts behind...

Lightroom Presets: Insta-Lightroom Nashville-like Effect

Every time I turn around, I see photos from the Instagram app that have that old vintage look to them. It’s kinda funny, because it can throw up a photo of someone’s shoes, but it always seems to look good when it has a old-vintage style with a really strong vignette added to it Anyway, here’s a free preset that mimics the style.

Lightroom Presets – Focal Point for Portraits and Landscapes

Hey there! I just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who came out to my Austin “Photoshop for Photographers” seminar on Friday.

More Calendar Presets

Who knew that Ed Weaver would have started such craziness when it came to his Calendar print presets for Lightroom.
