As we all know, Adobe Lightroom is a photo enhancement tool developed by Adobe systems in 2006. The program was re-launched in June of 2007, and by that time, everything was in place in terms of the editing features and other Lightroom services. Adobe Lightroom is not just for modifying tons of image collections, it was also developed for organizing and viewing bundles of images. But despite its amazing features, the software was not spared from the so called bashing since for some people, Lightroom is a complete and similar program like Photoshop.
They didn’t realize that Adobe created Lightroom to help professional photographers with their workflow. Although there are similarities between the two, Lightroom is faster, simple and easy to use compared to Photoshop.
Talking about presets in Adobe Lightroom
If Photoshop has actions, Lightroom has presets. It is a collection of filtered images with different color tones and adjustments. Presets are the key to having a good quality outcome. It can be applied to hundreds or even thousands of images at once. Basically, as you start using Lightroom, you’ll be able to create your own set of presets, of course, by using the default presets for Lightroom as a guide. Presets can be found in the Library module and can be made in the develop module in Lightroom’s interface. However, there’s another way to get free presets for Lightroom; downloading bundle collections of presets online.
Professional photographers are now using presets for their images since it can help them save A LOT of time in their editing process since all they have to do is to apply one preset style to one or more images in just a few clicks.
While most editing tools are focusing on their editing capabilities, Lightroom continues to provide other useful and effective services aside from modifying images. It can do other things such as organizing, image and video presentation, keywords, tags, and metadata application and a whole lot more.
