What is Lightroom
Lightroom is a 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.
What are 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 know as a “preset”.
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.
