How To Save A Preset

 

Saving You Time By Making Your Own LR Preset

To preset or not to preset? This is the question every photographer asks. When I first started photography, I got sucked down the preset hole very much like in Alice in Wonderland. There were so many amazing presets out there to try and purchase. However, the more I used them, I couldn’t quite get the look that I was trying to achieve. So, I decided to create my very own base preset.

I started with one photo in Adobe Lightroom. I applied all my changes that I would normally make on all of my edits. Of course, there were special tweaks for different lighting situations but I just wanted to create a base layer that I could easily apply to any of my images. Once I was happy with the base layer, I went to “Develop” –> “New Preset.”

From there a new window popped up. I could name my preset and select what settings I wanted to apply to that particular preset. All I need to do is hit the “Create” button. My newly made preset will appear on the lefthand side of Lightroom under “User Presets.”

Creating your own preset is not only a time saver but it makes editing SO much easier. I also create special presets for locations I shoot at often. This could be certain parks, venues, etc… There’s no limit to how many presets you can make! I hope this was helpful to your workflow! It’s an easy tip that will save you time on your editing!
