Mastery Monday: Creating your own Lightroom Presets

Let’s talk about Lightroom presets

I’m not going to lie, I love presets, and I encourage you to use presets, but I want to make sure that you know how to work with them properly and that you know how to create your own.

What is a preset? They certainly seem like a magically option that we can spend lots of money on to create wonderful styles and effects on our images. Well-made presets allow you to apply different looks to a photo and can even show you how to achieve a certain style. While, poorly made presets can override any adjustments you have already made to your image and cause you more trouble to try and fix the image back to your liking while hopefully maintaining the preset style.

In this video I will show you how to create your own preset and how to make sure that it’s one of the well-made presets that you will be able to enjoy using over and over again.
