INSTAGRAM LIGHTROOM PRESETS

Among the ocean of questions in your head, the most prominent one would be – What exactly are these presets? To answer that question in the simplest terms, it’s editing pictures with just one click. In other words, it;’s like employing professional filters to your photographs. Distinctive presets add different aesthetics to the images/group of images being edited.

Precisely, no worrying about the editing process taking hours & being a complicated procedure.

WHY SHOULD THESE PRESETS BE USED BY INSTAGRAM BLOGGERS?

We’ve all edited our pictures to enhance the photograph’s quality or highlight a particular thing for once in our lives. This translates to careful, hours-long editing to reach the correct contrast & brightness. Even for a seasoned Lightroom user, it can be time-consuming.

With Adobe Lightroom Presets, editing is completed at the click of a button. This not only fastens your work speed but also enhances the quality of the edited picture.

Instagram bloggers need to have a consistent feel of the feed to convert general visitors to followers. It is easier to maintain a cohesive sense by using the same preset or a set of similar presets. As a result of which, you’ll have consistency in your pictures & additionally, it would also guarantee high-quality images.

One of the most under-rated advantages of presets is that they teach you how to use Lightroom. By applying a preset, you can see what editing was done to reach the end look. Over time, these settings can be understood & learned to create a preset of your own to add your pictures’ uniqueness.

CHOOSING LIGHTROOM PRESETS

You’ll agree that choosing what we don’t like is more comfortable than what we want. To understand the kind of Preset that you like, you need to list the ones you don’t. For this, the feature of saving your posts on Instagram helps a lot. 

How?

Save the images you don’t like, for whatever reasons, from your feed. This will make a collection of those edits you don’t like much. (Using the Instagram Save feature unconventionally is what makes you unique.)

Following this, try to find out what it is about the picture that you don’t like, for instance – color, contrast or brightness, etc. After this, all you’ve to do is keep in mind what effects to avoid while editing  & you’ll end with pictures that you admire & also that maintain a certain mood in your Instagram feed.

EDITING PICTURES WITH LIGHTROOM PRESETS

Firstly, Lightroom should be updated to Lightroom CC Desktop (version 1.4 or later) and the Lightroom mobile (version 3.3.0 or later). Sign in using your Adobe ID.

Next, after the presets are installed in Lightroom CC Desktop (they come with instructions), they will be updated in Lightroom Mobile. Make sure Lightroom CC is synced by clicking on the cloud button.

With the Presets synced, open the picture you wish to edit by selecting from the photo library. Once the image is selected, from the dropdown menu, click on Edit. Then tap on the Preset Button to open the list of presets.

Select the preset you wish to apply. If you like after effects, keep it or else press the undo arrow and choose another preset. Repeat this till you finalize the look & then click on the tick sign to close the preset menu without saving the image.

If you wish, you can tweak the preset settings according to your requirement. You can also adjust the settings for the photo like the contrast, brightness, light, shadow, among many other options, to make the final changes.

Finally, to save the image, click on export & bam you’re done! Share the picture to your library or Instagram Stories of Feed or wherever you wish to.

Isn’t this easy & fast? *“I told you so” look*
