Matt Kloskowsi has developed a new preset for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

I got some inspiration for this preset while looking through a magazine this past weekend. I saw a Ralph Lauren/Polo ad and I noticed their photos have a very distinct look to them. As always, I made it my mission to recreate the effect and I think I got pretty darn close. As you’ll see, it’s got a hint of green to it with a slightly desaturated look. I tried it out on some actual polo sport photos but I also tried it on some wedding photos and it had a very neat look to it. It’s worth mentioning that it seems to work best on brighter photos, so darker sunset photos or photos taken indoors probably won’t look as good. [via Lightroom Killer Tips]

Yesterday I showed you an article on why you should use UV filters. Today, I point your attention to graduated filter presets (for those who perhaps forgot or don’t use filters). How nice to add them on afterward.

Today’s tip comes from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Killer Tips

This week I’ve got some graduated filter presets. There are literally a ton of ways I can go with these presets so I’ve decided to get fairly specific and create presets for blue skies. When you download them, you’ll see they’re listed in -1, -2, and -3 stop increments (just makes more sense to me then 0.3, 0.6, and 0.9). However, if you’re the traditional filter kinda person, then by all means feel free to change the names once you import them (just right-click on the preset name to rename it). You’ll also see that I’ve included placement for 3 locations. Top Third, Bottom third, and Middle. The top and bottom probably make sense since we typically try to position a horizon at the top third or bottom third. [via Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Killer Tips]

Over time, I’ve shared locations where users of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can find free presets. I personally love Lightroom and admit I use it more than I do Photoshop. So for those who want to know where to go to find some presets for free, well here’s a brief list.


Matt Kloskowski has new Lightroom presets.

The first is Edge Lightening and the other is Artistic Tints. If you use Lightroom presets like I do, you’ll want to add these to your repertoire.


I love his presets. Hey, I love anybody who makes my work easier. What can I say. Well if you’re like me, be sure to check out the NEW and REVISED auto presents Matt Kloskowski has posted on Lightroom Killer Tips.
