Lightroom Presets

What are they and how do they work?

In the interest of speed, efficiency and consistency Lightroom presets were born. A tool that has been rolled over and repeated in different ways across different photo editors. Photoshop has its actions, Luminar has its LUTs and Looks but Lightroom is where presets really started to shape the one-click editing generation.

What is a Lightroom Preset?

Presets are by definition a pre-defined adjustment that can be applied to any photograph to give a consistent adjustment. 

Now let’s clear things up – presets aren’t always a one-click solution despite the intention. Many photographers use presets to get 90% closer to their desired effect but still need to make refinements image by image.

Where Can I Get Lightroom Presets?

Lightroom presets can be found all over the internet, some as weak as a baby kitten that does nothing visible for your photos. Others are like a volcano of over-adjustments. Fortunately for you, you’ve landed in the perfect spot in between. 

iPhotography has a massive range of Lightroom presets available in 4 iconic collections for you to buy.
