What are lightroom presets?
Hmm well lightroom presets are the combination of so many tools or setting that are applicable on another pictures. So they can look same as lightroom preset.
Suppose you have a picture and you want to edit that picture in dark style and after wasting many hours (depends on your skill) you did.
Now you have same type picture and you want to edit that another picture too in that dark style.
At that time you can simply copy the all settings from edited picture and paste all copied settings to new picture.
That’s it, then your another picture will be edited with same style in a second.
First picture that you edited and turned into dark style, that picture called lightroom preset.
How do lightroom preset create actually?
There’re so many professional lightroom preset creators who create lightroom presets. They waste their hours and hours and create lightroom presets.
I’m one of them by the way.
But I’m not like others. Many of them sell their hard work. That is totally acceptable.
They should sell because there is theirs hour of hours hark work.
Why do i give all my presets free?
I just think about those guys who are not financially independent those who are students right now and they want lightroom presets.
They need lightroom presets but they don’t have enough money to buy costly presets. How will they do?
So that I give all my lightroom presets free of cost. You can download all my lightroom presets free of cost.
