Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions can help get a heap of work done in a very short span of time. Here are our top 15 Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions, to help enhance your images.
Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions are a bit like magic. They can help get a heap of work done in a very short span of time, but as with any shortcut, they’re only able to improve upon the quality that’s already there. What this means is that you need great starting material, to get amazing results. High-resolution images with good composition are mandatory. If you feel you need to brush up on your photography skills, we strongly recommend our excellent courses over at Tuts+.
These tools are meant for both hobbyists and professionals alike and can help achieve a certain look in no time. As with any tool, it’s not perfect out of the box (although they do work exactly as advertised). You’ll need to make sure your images are a good fit for the preset & actions you’re looking to use, to ensure the best results. Once that’s a given, all you need to do is press play (for actions) or apply the preset. If you’re happy with the result, proceed to share your creations on your social media profile of choice! If you feel you like the effect, but it’s too strong, or slightly off, you can always choose to manually tweak the images to perfection and beyond.
Having said that, here are our top 15 Lightroom Presets and Photoshop Actions, to help you add some amazing visual spice to your images:
