Is anyone REALLY buying LR presets?

They are everywhere...on websites, in facebook feeds and other social media platforms. In Youtube ads and on your influencing neighbours photo blog.

The LR Presets! The magic color slider combinations that will take your everyday boring image to award winning heights. Was $499 - now limited offer of $39 (only if you order today).

Who buys this anyway? If you've seen one you've seen them all. I don't get it. Personally, I don't mind paying for something that really makes a difference like well built LUTs that mimic slide films (like RNI) and/or really balanced camera profiles but why pay for LR sliders? Most of them are just color graded, warmed or cooled down settings with film-like curves.

Just a random lunch rant. Feel free to add your opinion (or not)

Happy Monday!
