Lightroom Presets

Monday Presets – Blue Sky B&W

Good morning everyone. I’m back from Photoshop World and I had an absolute blast. It was the funnest/most tiring week I’ve had in a long time. I’ve got some presets for you so feel free to scroll down but first a couple of quick news bites.

NewsTerry White wrote a quick review of my Layers book over at his Tech Blog site. I’m really excited to say that the Layers book was a total hit last week at Photoshop World. I had no less then 100 people ask me to sign it and it was an honor each time. Thanks to everyone who came up. Anyway, as much as this is a chance to plug my Layers book (you know I love those 😉 ), it’s also a chance to send people to Terry’s Tech blog because he gives the flat-out best tech advice out there.

Lightroom 2 Beta was announced last week (see previous post) and I got a ton of question both here at the blog, and at Photoshop World. Tomorrow (which could be Wednesday… or not) I’m going to post a Q&A to answer them all.

PresetsNow for the presets. This is one that I’ve had an idea floating around about for a while. It’s a black and white preset but it’s primarily meant for outdoor photos. They could contain people, animals, mountains, trees or whatever but there’s one key ingredient that they must have – skies. These presets target the sky and give you three different choices: light, medium, or dark. So you can push your skies toward white, a medium grayish color, or get dark skies if you’d like.

Well I’m about to dig myself out of email-inbox-hell after it piling up for a week. Make sure you stop back tomorrow for the Lightroom 2.0 Q&A session. Have a great one!
