Develop Presets Available for Lightroom CC

04_21presetslr
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.

Customizing the Default Settings in Lighroom’s Develop Module

When using the Post-Crop Vignette panel in the Develop Module in Lightroom, if you prefer Color Priority or Paint Overlay (instead of Highlight Priority) to be the default style, you can change it by customizing the Develop module’s Default Settings.

This video, Working with Camera Profiles, explains how to customize and save new default settings in the Develop module. Because the video was recorded when Adobe announced Camera Matching profiles (in LR2!), the first six minutes of the video discusses these profiles. However, it then it goes on to explain how to set your default settings in either Lightroom or Camera Raw and even though a lot has changed since then, you can still use the same method today for changing default settings for panels other than Camera Calibration – including Post Crop Vignettes and Lens Correction.

Quickly Paste Develop Settings in Lightroom 5

If you repeatedly want to apply specific setting(s) to images in Lightroom’s Develop module, apply the setting(s) to a single image and then use the shortcut Command + C (Mac) | Control + Shift + C (Win) to copy the setting(s) using the Copy Settings dialog. Now, as you move through your images, you can quickly paste the setting(s) using Command + V (Mac) | Control + Shift + V (Win). 

This can help your productivity if, for example, you copied settings for the Post Crop Vignette. As you move through your images (making different adjustments and/or applying different presets that change color,  tone etc.), you can  easily paste the Post Crop Vignette settings  to the images that need it using Command + V (Mac) | Control + Shift + V (Win).
