Free Lightroom 4 Presets
Nov 16, 2012

I'm new to the world of presets and tripped across this site loaded with some very nice free presets.

http://lightroomkillertips.com/category/presets/

Does anyone else have some links to free presets that they liked?

Searching here or by Google generated a lot of noise response, ie only a rare few were truly related to "Lightroom Free Presets". I was hoping that people would mention ones that they were happy with.

Here's another site I found:

Matt Kloskowski has some nice Lightroom presets and I'm sure there are lots more out there.  Presets in LR and actions in Photoshop can be nice to help you achieve a specific effect but remember that you generally need to tweak the image to achieve the final effect that matches your inner vision.

Here is another good site for presets.

Not sure how a google search is "noise" - my quick search just gave me the following great sites:

http://www.presetsheaven.com/

http://photo.tutsplus.com/articles/post-processing-articles/100-free-lightroom-presets-and-how-to-make-your-own/

http://pinterest.com/nicolesyphoto/free-lightroom-presets/

http://www.designfloat.com/blog/2012/06/13/free-adobe-lightroom-presets/

and about 3 more pages with useful stuff...

By "noise" I meant that most of the hits that Google returned were for "Lightroom" and not "Lightroom Presets", and the ones that did mention "presets" were mostly for purchase and not free.

I did keep searching but the only one in your list that I came across was "Preset Heaven".

Thank you for the links, that was exactly what I was looking for.

I'm not looking at presets as being the end-all and be-all of my editing but as a starting point and as a place to learn how to make my own presets.

I found that website a few years ago and Matt is very good at what he does. I believe he, Scott Kelby and many others work for the same company.
