How the presets work:

This product is divided into two parts: 15 different styles for the basic look of the image and 15 color grading presets for further refinement, as well as additional technical presets such as vignetting or grain. All presets are clearly named, ensuring intuitive navigation within Lightroom:

Please note: The presets make use of advanced color adjustments in Lightroom, such as Tone Curve for RGB channels, Color Grading and Calibration. It's best to start by opening all the panels and familiarizing yourself with the settings.

πŸ“· Before & After Examples

One image, numerous looks:

Often different looks can be applied to the same image with great results, and the color grading presets also make for exciting variations.

For Desktop & Mobile (DNG presets included for basic looks)

All presets use the Color Grading feature of Lightroom / Lightroom Classic (October 2020 release) and Adobe Camera RAW. This means that these presets are unfortunately not compatible with older versions of Lightroom. Please make sure you have at least one of the following versions installed:

  • Lightroom Classic (Version 10.0 or higher)
  • Lightroom (Version 4.0 or higher)
  • Lightroom Mobile (latest iOS/Android version) - DNG presets are included for basic looks only
  • Adobe Camera Raw for Photoshop (Version 13.0 or higher)

βœ“ Also works with Adobe Photoshop!

This product also works with Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) in version 10.3 or newer. That means you can use the presets in Photoshop, too.
