You probably saw this last week when we launched our NEW Lightroom Presets – Inspiration. These have a similar look and feel to our Inspire Photoshop Actions, a super popular MCP set. I wanted to show you the steps behind each of the three looks we use as examples of this beautiful photo by L&L Photography.

These presets are current on very special pricing – reveal the pricing by clicking the button:

    Thank you for posting this! I would love to see more posts that show us the exact steps that you use to achieve certain looks using the presets we have purchased from you. If you can, please include the strength of the action (several of the examples above mention presets, but don’t say whether they used the light, medium or strong version of that preset). I love seeing the effects that are possible in the sample photos when I purchase the sets, but am rarely able to create a similar look because I don’t have the “recipe” and am not as experienced at putting the effects together. So more articles like this would be great, or if you posted some “recipes” and sample photos showing the results on your website, that would be really helpful as well. Thanks again! I look forward to more posts like this!

      Maree – we will try and do that. Many presets only come in one strength, though the helper ones do have three. We are glad this is helpful to you.
