Using Lightroom Presets

If you have recently started using Lightroom, or maybe have been using it for some time but not yet got fully to grips with it, this tutorial from e-photozine, may prove of value.

Tutorial On Using Lightroom Presets - Peter Bargh explains how Lightroom presets can save you time when making similar changes to your photos. Also how they let you perform and repeat advanced colourising and vignetting effects as well as apply treatments perfected by other users.

Lightroom has a useful option to save a series of adjustments / filters as a preset so you can reapply those settings to other photos later. 

These presets appear on the left of the screen when you're in the Develop module.

By default the program installs Lightroom's ready made collection of presets which includes popular ones such as infrared, various vignettes, antique or split toning and a wide range of black & white contrast control options. 

Hovering over the link on the left-hand menu shows the effect of the preset on your photo in the small preview window above the menu.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 - The Missing FAQ - Real Answers to Real Questions Asked by Lightroom Users

When you have a Lightroom question, where do you look? Do you trawl through thousands of web pages looking for the information you need? Perhaps post on a forum and wait for hours for anyone to reply? Maybe try to figure out the Help files? From now on, you look right here! 

This is the reference book that should have shipped with Lightroom. Adobe Lightroom 4 - The Missing FAQ is a compilation of the most frequently asked questions, presented in question and answer format so that you can easily find the answers you're looking for. 

Whether you're a new user who likes to dive straight into new software and figure it out as you go along, a more experienced user wanting to learn how to get the best out of Lightroom, or you've just got a burning question you'd like answered, this book is for you.

 These are real-world answers to real questions asked by real Lightroom users. 

It not only covers how to do things, but also why they work the way they do. Lightroom may have a mind of its own... but now you can learn how it thinks. 
 There's a story behind this book... and a FREE bonus! The Adobe Lightroom - The Missing FAQ series was originally intended to be a searchable eBook, however once the books were released to the public, a demand arose for a paperback version too. 

Whilst some books have a PDF supplement, this book is the other way round - the color PDF eBook is designed to be the primary book, and this black & white paperback is the supplement. Anyone purchasing the paperback version is invited to contact the author via her website to download the main PDF version and 2 other digital formats absolutely FREE.
