As an amateur photographer, I needed Lightroom to help me edit all the images that I took from the field. As much as I want to use Photoshop, I don’t have enough time to edit the image manually. With Lightroom, I don’t need to spend longer hours just to modify images. In this article, I decided to give a brief yet informative tutorial on how to create Lightroom presets.

Before creating presets, you need to start the process by choosing images that you want to edit and include in the preset collections. Open it in the develop module in Lightroom, set all the settings to default or zero if you want. You don’t need to worry anything since Lightroom is a non-destructive tool which preserves the original setting of the file.

To create presets, go to the develop module panel located on the left side of the interface and click the “create new preset” icon with the plus sign. This will bring you to a new window that allows you to create customized presets. The next thing to do after you’re done with the preset is to label the preset, select a folder on the library module and press the create button to save the new preset.
