Lightroom 5 Tutorial – The Preset

Lightroom 5 Tutorial  - The Preset

Another short tip and share about the power of Lightroom. One of the cool features (not new) and present in a number of software packages is the “preset’ (or recipe). First you need to understand what it is. In simple terms it is a recipe of your favourite settings on an image you have worked on and adjusted. Its simple to do , frist click on develop , new preset.

Then this window opens and you can select various develop settings to add. Choose a name for the preset (example Chobe Golden Light  in folder USER Presets ) and  check what you want and click  create.

This preset will be in the User Preset folder in the presets block on the Left Tool Bar for future use and application to similar images.

I thought of quickly sharing a little something simple one can use in Lightroom . I have seen another post by Mark Dumbleton that shows you how to add warmth to the highlights by using the split tones module in lightroom 3 / 4 / 5

Lets start with the original image as shot with no adjustments

I follow on with my basic Lightroom workflow and preparing for a monochrome conversion. Next step apply one of my favourite monochrome presets (yup , workflow on another image saved)

Finally tweak as needed and select colour in split tones and add both to shadows and highlights . It is like adding a colour cast over the whole image. I like this one that gives a platinum tint…
