These versatile portrait presets will enhance your photography-game!
In this desktop presets pack, you will find 9 unique presets. We made 2 versions of each preset: a low contrast ‘-‘ and a high contrast ‘+’ version. So you get 18 presets, which we tested and optimized for RAW files specifically, but also work with JPG/JPEG files.

What are Desktop Presets?
We developed these desktop presets (Lightroom presets) specifically for the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom applications on desktop (Windows or Mac).
You need a Creative Cloud subscription to use these presets, or if you bought a stand-alone version of Lightroom Classic in the past, you can use the .lrtemplate preset files.
Who are These Presets For?
This is our most versatile preset pack! We created it for everyone who shoots portrait photos and wants to up their editing-game. Portraits are photos that have people or other subjects like animals in them!
We use these presets on our Instagram accounts @onceuponajourney and I use them on my personal travel photography account @maartjehensen.

How to Use Presets?
Presets CAN be a 1-click perfect edit, but more often, you have to make photo-specific changes to your edit. Each photo is different in terms of lighting and coloring.
A preset is a great starting point, but to make the perfect edit, we recommend making tweaks. We have a Lightroom tutorial for you if you are overwhelmed by the options, or if you simply want to learn what tool is best used for what!
How to Install?
After purchase, make sure to check our guide on how to install presets (xmp-files) or lrtemplate-files if you use Lightroom Classic version 7.2 or older.
