Why should you re-invent the wheel with each photo you edit?

The truth is, many images need the same adjustments. Especially if images are from the same shoot, you might want to use a preset: a set of common tweaks and tasks that you can apply to multiple images at once.

Don't want to create your own presets from scratch? No problem. Another advantage of working with Lightroom presets is that you can send and share them, as well as borrow editing styles from other photographers.

Here are three featured Lightroom presets available on Envato Elements

Black and White: Porcelain

Porcelain applies black and white styles with a soft tone curve. These are ideal for portrait images.
