Free Lightroom Presets – Nostalgic Summer Collection from Pretty Presets
Happy Monday everyone. I hope all the dads out there had a great fathers day weekend. I know I did.
This week, Laura (from Pretty Presets) was kind enough to donate some free presets for me to give away. The images here show the before/after samples of the 3 presets in the download below (from various collections). If you like them, she’s got plenty more available over at at Lightroompresets.com so make sure you stop by and pay her a visit.
Heres the link to download the sample presets. Enjoy ’em, and don’t forget to stop by Laura’s site and check out some of her other collections. Have a great day!
thanks for sharing. I was found another presets on http://www.learnsphotoediting.net/p/coles-classrooms , hope this helpful

Thank you! I can’t wait to give them a try.
You’re so welcome. Thank you, Dawn. 🙂
I can’t wait to go home and get these presets into my new Lightroom! I took some newborn pictures yesterday, and would love to see how I can make them more fun looking. I will come back to report soon! Thanks again!
I hope you are enjoying them, Jass! Hope you had a wonderful session too. 🙂
I haven’t tried them yet (downloading now), but thanks in advance for your efforts.
My pleasure! I hope you are enjoying them now. 🙂
Thank you very very much Laura! They are some great presets.
I am so happy you are enjoying them, Robert! Thanks for being so kind. 🙂
Thanks for sharing these! I’ve just recently found your blog and am enjoying learning my new LR3 very much with your tips and suggestions — fav so far has been the flagging and mass deleting rejects! Such a great time-saver!!
These are very nice, and perfect timing too! Thanks for sharing 🙂
I have just downloaded the pre sets that you have given us the link to and they are awesome! Thanks so much!
Are these for RAW or jpg files?
Hello Joanna! Thank you so much for your question. The “Golden Hour” preset is for jpegs and the other two are for RAW images. I hope this helps! Respectfully, Laura
Amazing – thank you!
Hello! Do you mean Lightroom? Yes, you can download Lightroom for a free 30 day trial at https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/tdrc/index.cfm?product=photoshop_lightroom&promoid=DJDUX. Then you can come back here and download the free presets. That way youre not out anything as you try out this amazing program!
I downloaded these, and they look nothing like the sample images when I use them on my images. They look very muddy, low contrast and just strange.
Hello Dennis! I’m so sorry to hear that. I haven’t heard this before and am wondering if maybe a jpeg preset is being applied to a RAW image? That could make them come out different. The “Golden Hour” preset is for jpeg images and the other two presets are for RAW images. I hope this helps! Thank you so much.
Thanks for the reply Laura, That definitely might make a difference. “Golden Hour” was used on RAW, that’s all I shoot. So that makes sense. Having not shot an image in JPEG in about 4 years, I didn’t even consider it could be for JPEGS. I will say the “Marilyn” preset worked a lot better, I tweaked it a little to work better with my images, and the toning on it was perfect. I will try the Golden Hour on a JPEG image. Thanks again for the reply. Hope I didn’t come off as rude.
Is there a website where you can download to try this feature, before purchasing it, to see if this is what I’d want. I want to make sure I get the right thing 🙂 Thanks!

Awesome! Thank you!!
Yay! Loving these free presets! 1st time user — and I’m looking forward to what they can do! Excited!
You’re so welcome. Enjoy them and come by and visit our site for other free presets. 🙂 Have a wonderful day.
Thanks for the presets. Great work.
Thank you very much Laura and Matt,
I am not much of an expert, but I think your presets work really well.
Thank you for making your material available for free!
Federico, I am so happy you are enjoying them. It’s fun to share!!
Hi! I’m new to lightroom, but I have bought, won, and downloaded free presets from you, and when I apply them to a sharp picture, the picture blurs. How can I keep this from happening??? I feel dumb because I’m guessing i’m doing something wrong????
Hello! Thank you for your question. You can adjust the clarity and that should help if there is any kind of blur of soft look. I hope I am understanding your question correctly. If this doesn’t help then please don’t hesitate to let me know. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I would love to help!
WHOOT! Thanks so much 😀
Can you tell me please, what I`m doing wrong, if I click Import, the program keeps saying Error – The preset file was the wrong type of preset. (for all 3 presets). I have LR 2, version 2.4.
Eve, you can email me at email@example.com and I would love to help you out! Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂
These are fabulicous 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
Another great preset.. will definitely use this on my photos. Thanks for sharing!
Looking forward to using Golden Hour, thanks Matt and Laura!
Great to see you on here Clint! Hope all is well. Enjoyed your compositing DVD 🙂
Oh good! We have a two more jpeg presets and one other RAW preset on our website as well. Here is the link: http://www.lightroompresets.com/products-page/free-presets. Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day.
Hi Laura and Matt,
Thanks so much for sharing these presets with us! I love the Golden Hour! Laura, your web site is awesome and I have bookmarked it!
Thanks again for sharing your hard work with us!
Dennis, thank you so much for your kind words! I’m so happy you enjoyed the website and even bookmarked us too. Please let me know if I can ever help with anything. 🙂
Golden hour is officially my favorite LR preset. Thank you for these!!!!! 🙂
I’m so happy you are enjoying it! That is one of my favorite presets, too. 🙂
Love them!!! Thank you!
these are gorgeous, thanks!
How generous of you! Thank you so much from the mother of an engaged college student…… I’m broke!
Lynn, I’m so happy if these will help! We have a few more on our website and hopefully those will be of some assistance as well. Thanks Lynn and enjoy your day.
Thanks for the presets!!
Thank you for all the kind words Suzy, Effie and Ron. It’s so much fun to share and we’re honored to have the opportunity! Ron, as of right now we don’t have any custom bundles. We’ve found so many people think they only like a preset or two and end up enjoying the whole collection. I appreciate your question and am so happy you are enjoying the free presets.
Thank you very much for these wonderful presets!! Absolutely love them!! I so appreciate you guys making them available to us!!
Thank you Laura,
I have visited your site in the past and have the other 2 free ones you offer there.
Is there a way to bundle certain presets from different collections in to a say custom pack? I like several from the different ones and would be very interested in building a collection of the ones I would probably use most for my shooting style.
WOW-fantastic you for the generosity!
It’s a pleasure to share them. Thank you so much, Julie!!
Really, really nice. Thanks Laura (and Matt).
Wow, these are great! Thanks! I just shot a summer wedding and am going to use some of these.
Oh that is wonderful! These will look great on summer wedding pictures. Enjoy!
I am excited to try them on some summer wedding pics i took this past week. Thanks they look they they will be fun to use.
