Create a beautifully dark and moody feel to your photos with our matte presets. A matte “effect” is a classic, nostalgic style that reduces contrast for the desired effect. It washes out the colors and creates a flat look. This is similar to printing on matte paper. However, these Lightroom matte presets offer a variety of options to help you fulfill your creative vision.

This set of Lightroom matte presets are designed for creating a classic, nostalgic look. Take the beauty of your photos and enhance them by creating a dark and moody feel.
Each Lightroom matte preset will wash out the colors and create less contrast. The result is similar to printing on matte paper. However, with over 30 Lightroom matte presets your creative vision is just a click away.
Oh, and you can easily adjust the edit settings for your own personal taste. No worries if you’re new to Lightroom, I’ll show you how. Read on…
Easy to install. Even easier to use. Our Quick Start Guide will have you using our presets in 60 seconds or less!

Any preset you apply to your images, whether ours or someone else’s, the edits applied are non-destructive. In other words, they don’t damage the original file. You can easily remove the edits by resetting the “edit” settings or by applying a new preset.
This is great news because it also means you can adjust any edits applied for best results… for YOUR photo.
Any presets you apply are just that… “edits”. Edits that were saved as a preset (for later use) were done based on the creative vision of the person doing the edits AND the photo they were applying them too.
Photos (and their histograms) are like snowflakes. No two are alike! So, it makes sense that a preset made for one photo may not be perfect for another. Sometimes you need to make adjustments until you’re happy with the results. Which is super-duper easy to do!
If you’re new to Lightroom I’ll show you how to adjust any edits applied, from this set of matte presets, to get the results you want. If you have some experience in Lightroom then you can use any of these matte presets as a starting point for your creative vision.
Or just looking for a new creative look? Lightroom presets (in general) allow you to quickly apply previous edits to your photos… in 1 click!
However, don’t be deceived by the simplicity. Not all presets will work 100% of the time for all your photos. No one else in the industry wants you to know this! I do.
Ever apply a pre-made preset that you purchased elsewhere (or from free Lightroom presets you downloaded) and wondered why they didn’t look good on your images? I have an article that explains exactly what happens when applying Lightroom presets, and why it doesn’t always look good!
Plus, you’ll learn how to EXACTLY use these Lightroom matte presets with the included (and exclusive) Lightroom preset guide. And, If you sign up for a pro membership you’ll have access to over 20 hours of tutorials on how to use Lightroom!
A lot of the included Lightroom matte presets come with “classic” edits. These types of edits are more natural in nature. However, since these are matte presets the dark and/or moody effect will still be applied.
Just like with any of our Lightroom presets you can easily adjust them to your liking. And you could even save your adjustments as your own personal Lightroom matte preset. Perfect when you’re shooting under the same conditions and want consistent matte type edits.
Creating your own matte presets is easy. I’ll show you how to customize, make and save your own edits (with the included Pro tutorial)!
All 32 of the Lightroom matte presets, from this collection, will apply the “matte” effect to your photos.
The secret to this type of edit is done with the Tone Curve. If you’re new to Lightroom and/or don’t know how to use the Tone Curve, no worries. I’ll show you how to adjust the Matte finish for your personal preference!
Another popular type of edit is one that has an old-school or vintage look. Varying techniques are used to create this type of look. Plus, you’ll still get the “matte” effect which enhances the vintage look.
The included Lightroom Preset Guide will give you tips on how to adjust for your personal style.
What type of photos should you use these Lightroom matte presets on? Well, since these matte presets were designed with low contrast in mind… it’s best to use on any type of photo you want!
