I wanted to share one more presentation – One Image, Two Looks – Editing in Lightroom’s Develop Module from Adobe MAX. Paul Burnett and I collaborated on this session entitled “One Image, Two Looks”. We start with the same photograph and then walk through how we made specific edits using the Lightroom Develop module to achieve very different results. Enjoy, and if you’re in the United States, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. See you next week.

Note: although this video was recorded in Lightroom, the same techniques are available in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop CS6. Click here to download the presets for Lightroom 4 (JKost Black & White.zip) and Photoshop CS6 (PS_JKost Black White.zip).
Note: The preset names differ slightly for Photoshop and Lightroom as ACR does not support folders in the Presets tab and I wanted all of the Black and White presets grouped together.
To install: download and unzip the presets for Lightroom/Photoshop (link above) and place them in the following location:
• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw /Settings (put the presets loose in the Settings folder – not in a subfolder)
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings
Note: If you are on a Mac running Lion, the (user)/Library folder is hidden by default. To reveal it, hold the Option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.
