If you use Lightroom, here’s a preset I made specifically for Lightroom 4 users! (It will work in earlier versions, it might just turn out with a slightly different look). Feel free to download and enjoy. It’s a very warm, cross-processed effect that goes well with portraits, still-life, landscapes … just about anything, really. :)

If you’d like more if this style of preset, check out my new Lightroom preset pack, a Cross Process Presets Pack for Lightroom 4, at the onOne Marketplace, specifically designed for the new processing sliders inside of Lightroom 4. They’re packs of ten for $9.95 each … I have a few other packs in there as well, including a B&W Preset Pack and a Film Preset Pack. Also, if you use onOne Perfect Effects (including the brand-new FREE version), I have a few preset packs available as well specifically for that software (with more on the way!). Here’s a link to all of the presets available for purchase at the onOne Marketplace.

Note (as of Feb 2013): The Marketplace at onOne Software has been officially closed. If you’re looking for presets and actions for photo-editing software, please check out the Nicolesy Store.

How to install a Lightroom Preset:

  1. First, download your preset and unzip/extract the file.
  2. Next, in Lightroom, go to the Develop module.
  3. In the “Presets” panel on the left, select or create a folder where you’d like to place your new preset.
  4. Right-click on the folder and select “Import…”.
  5. Navigate to the new preset and click the IMPORT button.
