Adobe Lightroom presets help photographers to professionally tone images quickly. They don’t only save time but they also create brilliant results.

There are many types of presets such as Lightroom presets for portraits, wedding photos, outdoor photos and so on. There are also thematic types such as vintage and retro.

Lightroom emerged as the undisputed leader in photography post-processing department. Even though Adobe Elements and Aperture on Mac also do good jobs, but Lightroom is Lightroom!

One of the things that makes Lightroom so great is its presets. Sometimes, they are called Lightroom gradients but the correct term is Lightroom presets.

So let’s get going with the presets… but first, here’s a quick video tutorial.
