For over 4 years of using Adobe Lightroom as my main post-processing image tool, I have created several customized Lightroom presets for my own workflow. But I decided to share it to the public for free so that my friends and colleagues will see my collections. However, there are times when I needed the help of ready-to-use presets or downloadable preset to help me with my images. I usually depend on one site like sleeklens.com since sleeklens have provided us with free presets that are good to go.
Basically, presets play a very important role in modifying images in Lightroom. Aside from the fact that it helps me and other photographers save time and effort, it actually helps us produce wonderful images.
I am overwhelmed with the presets I’ve made. I even use most of it in my personal photos and work related images. Using presets makes it easier for me to work with my images as it only requires minor and a few adjustments to get a good-looking, high quality images. In this article, we will talk about the importance of generating presets in Lightroom.
Spending some time understanding and familiarizing the process of creating a preset can help you enhance your creativity and decision making skills since you will be making a lot of decisions as to what setting is good to apply to an image.
I’ve realized that using presets in Lightroom becomes more effective when used often. Because if you use the presets rarely, you will never be familiar with the settings of your own presets. Using presets and creating preset as often as possible will help you memorize the entire process which helps you save more time. Moreover, when you get to understand the importance of these presets, your workflow in Lightroom will become well-organized and managed.
Generally, preset is considered to be the heart and soul of Lightroom. So if you decided to use and make more presets, you will start getting comfortable with the program.
Once you’ve used presets for a while, you will start to get more and more comfortable tweaking and fine tuning them to your taste. The more comfortable you get, the more you will start using certain looks time and time again. Feel free to use some of my presets as a base or a starting point. Then add to it, change it up, tear it down and rebuild it, then create new preset that’s all your own.
