Read Time: 5 min

Who doesn't love free Adobe Lightroom presets? With just one click, you can borrow and tap into the style of other photographers. Presets can transform your images and add styles in a second.

As Lightroom's popularity has increased, so has the quality of presets to modify and enhance images. Because Lightroom is a "non-destructive" image editor, we can easily try out all types of presets and not change the original image file. This makes it easier than ever to experiment with applying effects to your photos.

We've tested one hundred the web's best free Adobe Lightroom presets. Plus, you'll see examples of premium preset packs that help your images look their best. The presets that you'll see in this post focus on Adobe Lightroom Classic, although some may include presets for other versions of Lightroom if the author included them.

Let's dive in!
