What is Lightroom
Lightroom is a very popular piece of software created by Adobe for photographers which enables them to do 3 functions. You can use it as an image library tool to manage and organize all your photos, you can also use it to develop and edit those photos in JPG or RAW format and lastly, it is for exporting those images. Lightroom Presets provide the perfect workflow automation opportunity for professionals and enthusiasts.
What are Lightroom Presets
When you are editing your photos in Lightroom in the “Develop” module, you can create different effects and styles by altering the many variables such as exposure, contrast, color, tone curve and so on. When you are happy with the look you have created, you are able to save the settings so that you can use them again later on different photos. When you save your settings, a file with the extension .lrtemplate is created and this is known as a “preset”. Lrtemplate files are easy to install we will show you how to load your presets in your Lightroom application.
You are able to download presets created by other photographers and use them on your own photos, at Photonify we sell collections of presets for many different types of photography styles. You likely found us on Google because of the professional designs we provide for both or free preset bundles and our premium lightroom presets.
How to Install a Lightroom Preset
Installing presets in Lightroom is super simple, just follow these instructions:
In the top menu go To: “Edit” > “Preferences”
Click the “Presets” tab at the top of the box and then click on the box titled: “Show Lightroom Presets Folder”
This will open a Windows file explorer box. Double Click on” Lightroom” and then Double Click on “Develop Presets”
Copy your presets into the “Develop Presets” folder.
