Q + A

 

 

Q: WHAT IS A PRESET?

A: It’s like a filter for your photos! I edit all of images with custom presets I create in Adobe Lightroom by adjusting the hues of specific colors and tones within an image. Then, I save that edit to apply to photos so my Instagram flows together. It’s like painting with photography!

 

Q: Are your presets a one click fix?

A: No, due to the fact that every photo has different lighting and colors, my presets will look a little bit different on your photos than mine. I shoot most of my images in natural, low light surroundings, which is what this collection is designed for. however, These presets subtly illuminate the natural tones, so you should only have to make slight adjustments in Lightroom (fine tuning the exposure, contrast, luminance, saturation, etc.) to create the look you are striving for.

 

Q: How many presets are in your collection?

A: There are 14 presets in my H O M E collection, and my top 4 favorites in my h o m e sample collection, with hues ranging from gold radiance to lush jungle tones.

 

Q: How much do your presets cost?

A: My full H o m e collection is $41USD, and my sample collection is $14usd. 

 

Q: How do I receive your presets after purchasing them?

A: After your payment is completed, you will receive an email with a download link containing the presets. Once you click the link, you will have 24 hours to save the files to your computer before they expire, so be sure to check your email right after purchasing them.

 

Q: How do I use your presets?

a: My presets are compatible with all Adobe Lightroom Classic CC (OSX and Windows) programs starting as low as $9.99/month. Available here. (I use adobe lightroom version 5.6.)
