Just a quick one on how to import Lightroom presets!

Both I and Grean Tea Productions sell Lightroom presets and are always getting asked what do once you have purchased these little wonders of colour.

They're wonderful tools of the editing world when it comes to giving your photo a pop of colour and they can really give a photo life and soul.

Both MAC and Windows are both very similar when lit comes to actually download a preset.

I’ll start with MAC first seeing as this seems the majority of us use one these days when using Lightroom or Photoshop.

HOW TO SAVE AN EDIT ONCE YOU HAVE CREATED A PRESET:

If you want to have a go at making your own presets head to the same place that you saw “import preset” and just above you will find “create preset”

Once you have finished editing a photo of your choice, click “create preset” and WALAH! Name it something memorable and you have made your first preset!

I will be posting another blog post up over the next few weeks with a beginners guide to creating a preset and using Lightroom so stay tuned!
