    I purchased Illuminate Lightroom Presets and love the ability to add light in creative ways to my photos. I had no idea that you could do that kind of work outside of Photoshop. Very easy to navigate and a lot of fun to play around with in Lightroom.

    Illuminate is the icing on the cake.
    Illuminate is the icing on the cake. Some of these presets and brushes do things I thought were only possible in Photoshop, and it’s amazing to be able to edit from start to finish in Lightroom. You can add dreamy light, sunflares, and many other extra touches to make your images go from great to WOW! If you want your pictures to go that extra mile, this is the set for you.

    Look like natural light – incredible!
    Photography is all about light…but sometimes you can’t quite get the light you want when you want it. This set has a huge variety of sunlight presets that look so much like natural light…this set is now in my top two favorite preset collections ever. (Posted on 2/11/14)
