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 preset. This one is based on a Lomography effect, hence the name “Lomo”. Sorry for the lame Styx reference but everytime I hear the word Lomo that’s all I can think of 🙂 Anyway, Lomography really has it’s roots in an old camera that produced a certain styled photo (you can read more about it here if you’d like) but I’ve seen a bunch of requests over the months to recreate it in Lightroom. If you think it sort of looks like a cross-processed effect then you’re right. It definitely has hints of it. However, this one is a little bit different and doesn’t produce quite the “greenish/yellowish” effect that a cross processed look will. So have at it. There’s only one version and I’ve found it works great for portraits as well as landscapes.

Thanks so much!
I love it. As a huge Holga user and fan, I’m glad to see this preset and it looks great.
Looks great Matt. Howbout a pseudo-HDR preset?
Thanks, Love you! I’ve been trying to make my own “lomo” preset, have something close but this looks better. Cant wait to try it out!
Love your presets as do my Photoshop and Lightroom students.
Nice one, thx alot… another cool preset from your collection.
Hi Matt, thanks for all the great presets, sure saves a lot of time being able to just click once and get results. I have one question though, I have been using Lightroom since it’s first beta release, and it seams that no matter how good I get an image to look in Lightroom, I can always make further improvements after sending it to Photoshop, is this just me or does CS3 have more powerful tools than Lightroom?
Great preset again,
greetings from The Netherlands
That was a nice preset!
Any news about LR 2?
Got my order in for Layers, too. Amazon UK are not delivering until the end of March though …
Thanks for this week’s cool preset!
Superb preset … nice one!!!
Great to hear the orders for your new book have got off to a flying start. Can’t wait to receive my copy.
All the best,
Another great preset to the collection. Thanks Matt! 🙂

Thanks for this preset. I haven’t shot with my Lomo in a while, so it’s cool to see this in Lightroom!
Awesome! I’ve been looking for a preset like this for a while. Thanks, Matt!
