Preset Folders | Lightroom | northern California photographer

Welcome to the next in the series of Lightroom tutorials. You will learn to use different areas of the Develop module in these tutorials. Today the topic will show you how to create preset folders in order to keep your presets tidy. Although this is not specific to editing your image, it is ultimately a short cut of sorts. In the next video I will cover how to create your own Presets.

While editing some images today, I decided to use a preset. I don’t often use them, but hand edit most everything. My presets were in such disarray, I decided to take the time to organize them. I had purchased some presets from several different photographers, but neglected to organize them. So every time I wanted to use one, I had to hunt for it. Creating folders allows me to keep them more organized and user-friendly.

Here’s an image I edited by using my own Import Preset, Breeze by Kim Klassen and a little cloning.  A little different from my usual clean edit, but quick and easy!
