I know how daunting it can be to edit and improve photos, but I want you to know that it can be a lot less intimidating especially when you use my Adobe Lightroom presets!
To celebrate this launch, I’m offering this at a discounted price of only $35.00 for a value bundle consisting of 17 different presets. I hope you guys will love it and find it useful.
frequently asked Questions
What are Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom is basically the professional editing and coloring program that a lot of Instagrammers and photographers use worldwide to enhance their photos, and its presets are edit settings that have been saved beforehand (in fact, you can think of presets as filters!). So this ‘Lifestyle Presets’ bundle for instance are settings that I have created myself.
Lightroom’s desktop software is what I recommend the most if you want to make the most when editing your photos. Since it’s a paid software, it can be quite costly — but think of it as an investment! (If you’re a student or teacher, you can even get a 60% discount from Adobe!).
Are these the presets you usually use?
Yes and I typically use the presets called Subdued and Golden. However, it helps to note that even after applying these presets, I still often do some minor tweaks because naturally, not all photos have uniform brightness, exposure, etc.
Meanwhile, some of the other presets in this bundle are settings that I don’t really use for my feed but I have created them still because they have been in demand by you guys (for instance, some of you wanted to know how to make a photo look like a shot taken with film, etc.).
Are these the only presets I'll ever need?
This will already be a good start for you to make the most out of your shots. It’s also a good chance for you to eventually create presets of your own.
How do I make the most of these presets?
Firstly, make sure you take photos in RAW — but it’s also fine if you can only take photos in JPEG or from your mobile phone.
Second, test as many of the Lifestyle Presets I’ve made to see which would best suit your photo. Once you find the preset that’s right for you, it’s highly likely that…
- You ended up having a photo that’s too dark or too bright. This usually happens because your original photo might have been taken with too low or too high of an exposure setting — don’t worry, this happens! To fix this, play around with the exposure, highlights, shadows, whites, and blacks settings to correct it.
- Your skin ended up looking weird. Go and adjust the color of the red, orange, or yellow tones by changing their hue, saturation, and luminance.
- You don’t like the certain hue of a color on your photo. Similarly, just adjust the hue of that color. Most of the time people like to change the color of greens (or the leaves on the trees in their photo) and make it look a bit yellowish, so adjusting the hue will help you achieve that look.
Can I reshare the presets I bought to my friends?
I ask that you please refrain from doing that because it would be a copyright violation. If you want your friends to get these presets too, kindly ask them to purchase this bundle themselves. Thank you!
Can I use these presets on Photoshop?
What photos are best partnered for each of the presets?
All kinds of photos can be used for any of these presets, but indeed, it will depend on the kind of mood that you want to achieve.
Anyhow, when I labeled the presets, I have set a name that best describes the kind of “feel” that they emit.
- Autumn: self-explanatory, great for photos taken in autumn
- Bright: self-explanatory
- Cool: great for photos that feature the sea or any body of water
- Film: gives off that film look, complete with added noise
- Golden: perfect for that sun-tanned look!
- Natural: self-explanatory
- Pale: self-explanatory, lessens saturation of most colors (almost in a grayscale)
- Red Flush: gives off a dominant brownish-red hue
- Retro: self-explanatory (or at least, the mood often makes me feel like it’s retro, lol, I’m probably wrong though)
- Sandy: great for photos taken in places like deserts, dry terrain, etc.
- Shade: great for applying dark yellow undertones
- Subdued: this is the preset I mainly use for my photos, often good for portraits
- Sunkissed: variation of Golden preset above
- Urban Hue: great for night photos of cities or urban spaces, gives dominant tints of blue and pink
- Warm: best to use if you want to make the photo appear like it’s under the sun (or yellowish)
- Washed: brightens and softens colors
- Winter: self-explanatory, great for photos taken in winter or snowy places (ironically, this is sometimes great to use for photos taken on the beach).
