Last week I received an email from Jane Grates, she’s from Sleeklens.com who make these landscape presets for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.Jane asked me if I would like to review the landscape bundle presets and write a review of my impressions. She told me that she just wants an honest review to which I said “ok , I’ll do it”.
More information about the products are here : https://sleeklens.com/product/landscape-lightroom-presets/, https://sleeklens.com/lightroom-tutorials/ and https://sleeklens.com/product-category/lightroom-presets
So just a bit of background, I have been using Lightroom for a few years now and its been my primary photo editing software, I use it for 80% of my editing and Photoshop for the balance 20%.
I got Jane’s email with the download link for the “Through the woods workflow bungle”, I followed the instructions on how to install the presets and the brushes, it was so easy to do.
On the website https://sleeklens.com/, there are video tutorials on how to use the presets and brushes to enhance your images.
I decided to try out one of my Travel Photography images, I opened an image from Santorini that I shot at sunset.
As you can see the RAW image straight out of camera was under exposed and dull so I decided to play around with the presets to see what they can do with this shot.
The presets are set up in such a way they that makes them easy to use.
The presets with “0” are all in one setting that apply different sliders to the image , they are like ready made recipes that do it all for you but you can always go in to the sliders and adjust to taste.
The preset “1” to “6” apply setting in order so you have more control over what is happening to you image.
After a few short minutes I was able to edit this photo into this final image.
Here is another one.
These presets allow you to edit your images in a fraction of the time it would take you to do them manually.
I like to use some presets to get my image close to the way I want it to look and then I go in and adjust. I find these save me a lot of editing time which leaves me more time to shoot.
