Adjusting Lightroom Presets

Now that we went over all the best presets for all styles of photography, now let's go over how to get the best outcome with Lightroom Presets. 

Presets look amazing in one-click and most photos won't need any further adjustments. If you are in a situation with hard lighting or dominant colors you can adjust the presets to suit your situation. After you apply a preset you have a few options to quickly fine-tune the edit to suit your images dominant colors and lighting. 

The Opacity Slider In Lightroom

All our presets include an opacity slider that helps you adjust the amount of edit. You can increase or decrease the amount of the preset being applied to your image. 

For iPhone & Android you can find the slider after you apply a Preset then click on that preset again. The slider will pop up and you can adjust the setting.

For Desktop Lightroom you can find the slider in the Presets Panel after you apply a preset. You can simply slide to the desired amount.

Adjust The White Balance

To get your color tones just right you can adjust the white balance after applying a preset. You can either use the "Auto" white balance option, which honestly works great or manually adjust to your liking.

If you are using Lightroom Classic (LrC) you can also use the white balance eye dropper to select a neutral tone in your image so Lightroom can achieve a better white balance for your photo.

Adjust The Exposure

If you need to fine-tune the brightness of your image after you apply a preset you can tweak your exposure. You can also try "Auto" but it will adjust a few other settings but can give great results. Manually adjusting the exposure will work great to really get that perfect lighting.

Batch Editing Photos To Save Time

Now one of Lightroom's most amazing features, batch editing. If you are editing a whole gallery or entire shoot you won't want to apply a preset manually to each photo manually it just takes so much time. You will want to apply one preset to all your photos at once.

To batch edit in Lightroom Mobile you will first copy the Preset and then select all your photos you want to add the preset too. Then click paste to add the preset to all your photos.

In Lightroom Desktop you will apply the preset to one of your photos in your gallery and then select all the photos you want to apply the Preset to. Then click "sync", this will apply the Preset to all the photos.

You can browse all these Preset Collections or shop all our Lightroom Presets here: Shop Lightroom Presets

To use Presets you will need the Free Lightroom App you can download here: Download for iPhone or Download For Android

For Desktop users you can download a free trial of Desktop Lightroom here: Lightroom Desktop Free Trial
