It is a short tutorial on how to create your own preset in Lightroom. And it's for beginners. Nothing too complicated, just moving some slides :)Presents can enhance your work and give another dimension to your images.

  • Find your favourite tone - warm or cool
  • Select the image style and either fade or increase contrast
