I am posting the presets that I often demonstrate while discussing Lightroom’s Develop module. Although many are basic, I hope that they will help show what’s possible in many of the panels. To install: download and unzip the presets for Lightroom JKostBasicPresets and place the folders in the following location:
• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets
Note: If you are on a Mac, the Library menu may be hidden depending on your operating system. To reveal it, hold the Option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.
The presets include settings for converting color images to grayscale, color toning using both the Split Tone and Tone Curve panels, selective color removal, lens correction, and grain and post crop vignetting These presets are meant to be a starting point, you can customize any of them as you see fit, save your own, and delete the one’s that you don’t in alignment to your style/workflow.
