Lightroom Presets

Presets – Spring Color, Flare & Haze

This week, Laura (from Pretty Presets) was kind enough to donate some more free presets for me to give away. The images below show the before/after samples of the 2 presets included in the download below (from the Spring Color, Flare & Haze Collection). If you like ’em, she’s got plenty more available over at at so make sure you stop by and pay her a visit.

The Spring Color, Flare & Haze Collection was designed to add a sun-kissed touch to your natural light images. They’ll work best on your RAW images and were designed for both Lightroom 3 and 4, as you’ll see in the download below.
(Special thanks to Spanki Mills and Jen Carver for the beautiful examples provided)

You can find out more about the presets and the entire collection over at her website ( or facebook page (

    When I apply the presets to a RAW image in LR4, it doesn’t adjust any of the sliders. The look of the image changes, but I can’t adjust anything independently. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

    I highly recommend Laura’s website and her presets. I have purchased from her site and have been very pleased with the results when using in Lightroom. Be sure to check out these free ones… I’m sure you’ll visit and become a customer!

    Thanks for the FREE presets! When I installed them, they say RAW. Can I only use them on RAW images? I still shoot in JPEG.
