Quick Start Guide

Easy to install. Even easier to use.

Our Quick Start Guide will have you using our summer Lightroom presets in 60 seconds or less!

Precise Control

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 to get the results you want.

If you have some experience in Lightroom then you can use any of these summer Lightroom presets as a starting point for your creative vision.

New to Lightroom?

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 summer Lightroom presets with the included (and exclusive) Lightroom preset guide and pro tutorials (with a subscription).

Classic Enhanced Preset Edits

Want just a touch of color enhancement for your summer photos? No problem.

This set of summer Lightroom presets comes with a lot of “classic” type edits.

These presets will boost the saturation of your summer colors and add a small amount of contrast.

Just like with any of our presets you can easily adjust them to your liking.

And you could even save your adjustments as your own personal preset.

Perfect when you’re shooting under the same conditions and want consistent edits.

Creating your own summer presets is easy. I’ll show you how to adjust and save your own edits (with the included Pro tutorial)!

Matte Preset Finish

Looking for a new creative look? Some of our summer Lightroom presets include a “Matte” finish.

A matte finish has a flat look to it (similar to the image to the left).

The secret to this type of edit is done with the Tone Curve.

I’ll show you how to adjust the “matte” finish for your personal preference.

the Light In Summer

There’s something magical about the light in summer. It almost seems brighter.

Oh, and the days are much longer!

To take advantage of this time of year I’ve developed some summer Lightroom presets to enhance the “light”.

Add a kiss of extra light to set the mood based on your creative vision.

The key is to match the direction of light in your photo. This can easily be done with our local adjustment presets.

Find out more about local adjustment presets below… 

Advanced Lightroom Preset Edits

Lightroom develop presets are the most known and used type of presets. Which this summer collection includes.

However, there are other more advanced type of presets known as “Local Adjustment” presets.

These types of presets allow you to control where to place the edit in your image.

Local adjustment presets give you the precision and control once only available in Photoshop.

This set of Fall presets includes several local adjustment presets.

This includes both Linear (Graduated Filter) and Radial gradients. These can be used for several different types of creative effects.

They can be used to darken a sky, enhance a sunset, blur out the foreground (to control depth-of-field), add a touch of light, and more!

Although they are “advanced” they too are easy to use.  Detailed, step-by-step, instructions are included for best results with YOUR photos.

Portraits + Landscapes

What type of photos should you use these summer Lightroom presets on?

Well, since these summer presets were designed with summer photos in mind… it’s best to use on outdoor photos.

It doesn’t matter if it’s just a photo of a landscape or an outdoor portrait (or wedding or anything else shot outside).

This is just the beginning! Although this set includes a large amount of Lightroom presets we have many more. Over 600 in fact.
