Using LIGHTROOM Presets To Edit! 💥ONE CLICK MAGIC 💻

Benefits of Using Presets
Using presets on your photos is often seen as cheating by some, but I disagree. Here are four reasons why using presets can help up your photography game:
If you have thousands of photos to edit, finding a preset that works as a starting point can significantly speed up your workflow. Presets save you hours of work and make the editing process much more efficient.
Consistency is key, especially on platforms like Instagram. Using presets ensures that you can achieve a consistent look across all your photos. While you can still make individual adjustments, presets give you an overall similar style.
When you’re not sure what to do with a photo, scrolling through presets can be a great source of inspiration. They give you ideas of different directions to take your photo, whether you want it dark and moody, bright, saturated, or desaturated. Presets offer a multitude of options to spark your creativity.
4. Learning and Reverse Engineering
By purchasing presets from your favorite creators, you can see their settings and learn from them. Understanding the settings in Lightroom allows you to reverse engineer presets and apply similar adjustments to your own photography. It’s a valuable opportunity to get inside the head of a skilled photographer and gain insights into their thought process.
Using Presets in Lightroom
After you download presets, you need to import them into Lightroom. Here’s how:
- Open Lightroom and select a photo
- Press “D” to go to the Develop tab or click on the Develop tab on the left side
- On the left side, click on the presets dropdown menu and select the option to import presets
- Locate the folder where you saved your presets and import them
Once your presets are imported, you can start using them. Keep in mind that presets are not an end-all be-all solution. They can serve as a starting point, but you may still need to make additional adjustments to achieve the desired look.
Now, let’s go through the process of using presets on some sample photos to demonstrate how they work:
First, you need to select a photo to edit. For example, we have a guy playing guitar. Then, hover over the presets on the left-hand side, and Lightroom will show you a preview of what each preset would look like. Play around with different presets to find the one that suits your photo best. Make sure to understand the settings in Lightroom to make any necessary additional tweaks.
Remember, presets are a powerful tool to enhance your photos, but they should not be relied upon solely. Understanding the settings and making personalized adjustments will help you achieve your desired artistic vision.
