PJH Preset FAQs
WHAT ARE LIGHTROOM PRESETS?
A Lightroom preset can best be described as a filter, however unlike instagram and other filters, a Lightroom preset preserves the quality of the photo by making adjustments within the photo, not over the photo. Each color and detail is meticulously adjusted by the preset creator and can be applied to any photo.
DO I NEED TO PURCHASE ANYTHING IN ADDITION TO YOUR PRESETS?
If you are using your presets on your mobile device, you will need to download the Lightroom App to you phone, but it is free. If you want to use the desktop version of our presets, you will need to purchase the Lightroom CC program from Adobe for your desktop. The cost is $10 per month.
HOW DO I GET THE PRESETS?
After purchasing the presets, you will receive an email that contains a download link. Click on it and download the files. Once downloaded, unzip (double-click) the file. Make sure to read the instruction booklet that will come with your purchase as a guide.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MOBILE PRESETS AND THE DESKTOP PRESETS?
The Lightroom Desktop filters are created to be used within the Lightroom CC program on your desktop computer, and the mobile presets are created to be used on the Lightroom app on your phone. The desktop and mobile presets are different file types and can not be used interchangeably.
DO THE PRESETS WORK ON EVERY PHOTO?
Yes! They will work on every photo however every photo you import will be so different in terms of lighting, color, etc.. The best part about our presets is once you apply them to a photo, you can make additional adjustments to your taste. If a preset doesn’t make a particularly dark photo appear lightened enough, you can simple adjust the exposure to get it where you want it to be. Every preset is the same, every photo is different but the overall “look and feel” of your photos will be cohesive depending on which preset you apply.
