Free Lightroom Presets
Here’s our round-up of free presets for Adobe Lightroom. You’ll find an assortment of presets that’ll deliver professional results in 1-click, without any costs. Our free preset packs take inspiration from the leading creative studios in their applicable genres, with our unique flair. And most of these presets won’t require any changes and are well suited for use as is. But, in some cases, minor adjustments to saturation, exposure, or contrast will ensure you get the best results if they do. In either case, enjoy them for both individual or commercial use. All you need is a compatible device with an active Adobe Lightroom subscription, when applicable. From there, you can find the ideal effect for your next invention.
So what are Lightroom presets?
Lightroom presets are advanced filters that add a specific visual style to an image. And they function similarly to an Instagram or Photos filter. Thus, they allow you to apply adjustments or changes, saving time, and gradually makes editing more consistent.
What’s a Lightroom Mobile preset?
Lightroom mobile presets are virtually identical to Desktop presets. But, we’ve specifically optimized them for mobile devices and the free Lightroom Mobile app. These presets allow you to edit images on-the-go and offer a free workaround if you don’t have an active Creative Cloud membership.
Desktop vs. Mobile Presets
Well, Desktop presets are more powerful than their Mobile counterparts. But, the caveat is they require an active Creative Cloud subscription. Even so, the results between both are virtually identical. The real benefit is that Lightroom Classic and Cloud for the Desktop have superior functionality and better integration with other software applications than the Mobile app. Otherwise, the choice here is a personal preference.
How do Mobile presets work?
Mobile presets give you the freedom to edit on-the-go by applying the filter on a mobile device, which is helpful when your standard editing computer is unavailable. And they also provide a free alternative to use Adobe Lightroom while being more portable.
What kinds of images work with your presets?
Our presets are general-purpose, so they’ll work across all mediums of photography. During development, we test them on real-life photos ranging from commercial, product, family, still life, wedding, and lifestyle photography. And we do this to confirm they’re highly compatible across a range of photos. But, every image is inherently different. So, not every preset works on every photo. In these situations, you’ll want to modify them to taste by change exposure, saturation, or contrast.
I don’t shoot RAW. Will these presets still work?
Yes. Shooting in RAW is best. But, it’s not a requirement to use our presets, and they still work on JPEG, PNG, JPG, and even HEIC photos.
I am new to Lightroom. Can I still use these presets?
Yes. We’ve designed our presets with beginners in mind. But, even if you’re an intermediate or advanced photographer, you’ll find them equally easy to use.
What programs work with these presets?
Desktops: Adobe Lightroom 2016 or newer, which includes Lightroom Classic or Cloud.
Mobile: Adobe Lightroom Mobile for iOS and Android
