Lightroom 4

Have you upgraded to Lightroom 4 and found that some of your presets do not work anymore? That’s because Adobe made some sigificant changes to the underlying image processing engine. Especially presets that have ToneCurve, Graduated Filter or Fill Light/Highlight settings will probably not work anymore.

All the presets found on this site now work with Lightroom 4. Some of the older ones have been upgraded and you can download either V3 or V4.

If you have other presets and cannot get a newer version, then here is a quick fix:

1. Go to the Develop Module

2. Open the “Camera Calibration Panel”

3. Where is says “Process:    2012 (Current)  click the little triangles you see on the right

4. Select 2010

All your pre-version 4 presets will now work again.

HDR-Like

Many people like the “look” of heavy tonemapped High Dynamic Range images (HDR). While Lightroom does not produce HDR images, one can simulate the look do a degree.
This Preset does not work on all types of images. Dark images will look downright awful and images with lots of blue (sky and water) will not look right either.
However, it provides great effects when used for buildings, street scenes and even some landscapes.
