Portrait Presets for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Portrait FX is an extensive collection of Lightroom presets specifically designed for the portrait photographer.

The package is put together with flexibility in mind, allowing many presets to be combined, resulting in an almost endless line of possibilities. The presets provide not only toning effects, but also address skin qualities, lighting, softness and contrast. Also, a series of adjustment brush presets are included in the package rounding off the capabilities with tools for fine-tuning.

Some of the preset effects are soft and subtle, others are more colorful and dramatic. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity and experimentation.

There are 54 Develop Presets and 12 Adjustment Brush Presets in total. The Develop Presets come grouped into 5 groups:

  • Portrait FX (11)
  • Toning FX (18)
  • Soft FX (6)
  • Skin FX (8)
  • Lighting FX (11)

The Adjustment Brush Presets include brushes for eye enhancements, touching up make-up, softening skin, whitening teeth and eyes, even a black eyeliner.

Some examples of the Develop Presets

And here are some of the other toning presets.

Then combine these toning presets with the presets from other groups to get any number of effects. You can soften the skin, lighten the skin and play with lighting angles with presets from the Lighting FX group.

Some examples of the Lighting FX presets mimic lighting sources located left/right, top and bottom of the main subject. Great to brighten up parts of the portrait or accentuate (or tone down) exiting lighting effects.

Other presets include contrast boosts, skin softening and skin lightening. A complete list is as follows:

    Just purchased your Portrait FX for Lightroom (using v3) … I got the Presets to load (had to import them) but can’t get the Adjustment Brushes (under Develop) to show up using your instructions. Please help. Thanks.

    Hi Dean
    Loading the Adjustment Brushes is pretty simple.
    In Lightroom, go under Edit -> Preferences and select the Preset Tab.

    TYou will see a button labeled “Show Lightroom Presets Folder”. Click that.
    This should open a window with a list of folderrs and the Lightroom Folder will be highlighted. Double click that to open it and you and will see a list of folders for presets, templates, etc. One of those will be called “Local Adjustment Presets”.
    Simply drag all the Adjustment Brushes (eg. PFX-Iris Boost.lrtemplate) into that folder and relaunch Lightroom. They should now all be available under the Adjustment Brush.

    Have fun, feel free to drop me an email if you still have problems.
