Video Quickie: How to Create Develop Presets in Adobe Lightroom
Here is a quick 10-minute video I did to show you how to create develop presets. Develop Presets are helpful when you are importing images into Adobe Lightroom and you want to apply basic develop settings.
I use the develop preset so that the images will apply lens profiles, remove chromatic aberrations, apply some sharpening and some noise reduction — all designed to save me time as I usually go through and set these settings after I have imported my images. By creating the preset, I end up saving myself some significant time during post processing.
All of this is described in the video where I will walk you through the creation of the preset, then import some images to show you how to apply the preset in the import dialogue box.
If you have any questions about the Develop Preset or want to know more, please feel free to drop me a line!
About the Author
Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens. Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but waiting to see if Sony comes out with a 'A9' before I upgrade) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times! Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
