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. I added a little more green to mine for the super-vintage feel to it but I think you’ll have a good time with it. I even used a pair of shoes as one of the sample photos below 😉 Let me know what you think. Thanks!
Here’s a couple of samples. (click to see it larger)

EXTREMELY difficult to get in contact with adobe to ask a question, I’ve been convinced to buy a product from a competing brand instead, since they answer questions. All links I click are in a circle, you never get to the actual “send question”-page. So now I’m posting here.
What I wanted to suggest was: Colour correction to calibrated “true colour”. If I have a calibrated monitor, then take a picture of a colour map or similar and use this to create a setting which corrects all my images from the camera’s perceived colours to the true colours they represent. Not some automated script which has no reference and arbitrarily corrects the colours to what that program thinks it “should” look like. I’ve been told that the lightroom colour correction function is very arbitrary and does not use a preset baseline calibrated for my individual camera.
The quick answer to your question is no, it doesn’t. Sorry.
Tried out the preset with HDR shots. Blogged it here : http://www.grahamwarsapphotography.co.uk/blog/2011/08/13/trying-out-new-post-process
Great lightroom filter! I love this so much (it’s called Polo/Ralph Lauren, but looks very similar to this) I use it to give my site the distinct style. Cheers,
Matt … this preset is the absolute NUTS !! I’ve had Lr for yonks, over a year now and never even opened the application until today when I wanted to work on some wedding pics I took. Just a little work makes an ordinary pic look a million bucks .. !!
Cheers bud : )
Just wanted to say your pre-sets have got me out of trouble a few times and really bought images to life hundreds of times. Thanks for sharing these.
Yes that adds a vintage look to it, but I was wondering is the app free? KurlyD good night everybody.
That’s very cool effect and clear instructions on how to do it.
Thanks for sharing!
I’m not a fan of instagram photos. I have a friend that uses the app to post some of his family photos and I’m not impressed. I’ve downloaded a lot of your presets, but I think I’ll pass on these. BTW looking forward to receiving you new book! Hope it doesn’t include any instagram photos. 😎
Jerry, I could not agree more. I have clients that bring me treasured photos that LOOK LIKE THAT and want them restored! I cannot see the big move to do this. I know “everyone” is doing it. smh
Instagram is just for fun. That is, after all, what photography should be, right… Fun, creative, and sometimes just simply quirky?
For some reason, I can’t open the file. I have an iMac. Any suggestions?
All I can say is awesome and I LOVE shoes!
great work as always. apply to 1 of a photo just now. loving it!!
