Lightroom Presets - African Tones.

These 5 Lightroom presets bring out subtle tones in an otherwise black and white image. These presets make our work easier, quicker and more creative, and now we are making them available to you to use. Shortcut your image enhancement process by simply clicking on the preset before making the final tweaks to your photographs.

What will these presets do? Intended mainly for processing RAW images (although they will work with other image formats as well) these presets create a starting point to bring a certain "look" to your photographs. Despite what many think or will tell you, these are not magic wands, instantly producing fine photographs. What the preset will do is get you most of the way there. Let's take our "Cool Greens" Lightroom develop preset for example: It will take your full colour photograph and, with the exception of the greens in the image, turn it into a  monochrome photo. Now you'll need to tweak the Basic Settings to fine tune the images, keeping an eye on the histogram to make sure that you avoid clipping the highlights and shadows. The vast majority of the adjustments have been taken care of by the preset - you just need to hone them to your needs.

Where will these presets work? These develop presets will work with the Adobe Lightroom Classic CC App. If you are using the creative cloud version of Adobe Lightroom Classic and it is up to date, these presets will work.

How do I purchase them? We will soon be launching our Africa Imagery online store but in the meantime drop me a mail and we can transact manually.

How much do they cost? Our "African Tones" Collection of Adobe Lightroom develop presets cost R80.00 (about US$5.00).

How do I install them? We will send you a zip file. Double click this file to open a folder containing the presets, remembering where this folder is located on your computer. In Lightroom, in the Develop Module, go to the Presets panel on the left and click the + on the top right. Select Import Presets, navigate to the preset folder and select all of the presets. Click Import on the bottom right of the dialog box that pops up and you're ready to go.
