Re: Lightroom 5.3 Presets

I couldn't find any Pentax provided lightroom presets so I just created one. I've got my lightroom preset set to go off on import that does the following:

  • +10 to contrast (Since I shoot raw and I find it always needs a boost)
  • +5 to Clarity (Aesthetic choice)
  • +10 to Vibrance (Aesthetic choice)
  • +10 to Saturation (Aesthetic choice)
  • Turn on lens profile correction (Distortion correction/chrom abb/ etc)
  • +7 Colour Noise correction (This one I recommend for anyone. The lightroom default for this is too high and just craps on the detail)
  • +80 Sharpening amount (This seems to work best for me as a default, but might not for others)
  • +85 Sharpening mask (This seems to work best for me as a default, but might not for others)

I find that I do these things all the time so it was best to automate them on import. It works pretty well with other RAW files too.

There are other things you're going to want to do on a per picture basis, but hopefully this is a good starting point for you.
