How To Use

Notes about using Presets

01

Basic Adjustments

Please remember that all Presets are only a starting point. Some presets work well with some photos and some do not depending on existing colors and lighting in the original photo. Don’t be afraid to tweak each preset to your liking including:

 

  • White Balance

  • Exposure

  • Highlights, Shadows, Whites, Blacks

  • Vibrance / Saturation 

  • Color Mixer

  • Color Grading

  • Calibration

03

Film Grain

There are 3 different film grains included with a reset option.

Flim Grain #1 - fine grain

Film Grain #2 - medium grain

Film Grain #3 - medium grain (size and amount boost)

02

Tone Curves

The Tone Curves are some of the most powerful editing features in Lightroom which is why I’ve included 20 separate curve adjustments in this pack giving you a multitude of editing options!

 

These presets fully utilize not only the main Tone Curve but also the separate RGB curves as well that help give each preset their own signature style.

 

I’ve created 10 different main Point Curves with and without RGB adjustments so once you’ve selected a preset you like you can further tweak the look using these variations.

04

Bloom

There is a Bloom On and Off preset which gives a halation style effect to really pop those highlights with a boosted hazy effect. The initial setting is set to 100 which might be too strong for your liking so in that case please adjust the amount with the slider in the MASKS section. In the case the effect does not work on your particular image you can add a radial or linear gradient across your image.
