How to use presets in Lightroom Classic

  • Import your photos.
  • Adjust exposure and white balance first so your image is properly exposed.
  • My presets will not affect exposure and white balance, which will make it easier to scroll through the presets.

    • Click to apply the settings to the photo.

Probably the app that I use the most. I love the PRO+ version for planning and saving all my trips with the Topo map. Awesome offline GPS for navigation and tracking in the mountains.
