Preset FAQ

Read Before Purchase


What is a preset? 

Presets are incredible & they are one of the most valuable & time saving miracles of my life! Basically, they are a ‘filter’ applied to your image via a program called Adobe Lightroom (either via the FREE Lightroom app or the paid Desktop version). With just a click of a button you can transform your raw images into works of art - see, told you, miracle! 

In an effort to support you at whatever stage you are in on your creative journey, I am going to highlight all the things I wish I had known when I was starting out regarding post processing aka editing. You might already know some things, or perhaps you are new to this whole editing thing, either way, I hope the below is helpful. 




What is Lightroom?

Lightroom is an Adobe colouring program & is what all the pros use to edit their images, everything from social media to their websites & beyond. You don't have to be a pro to use it though & with the help of our presets, you will only need to make minor adjustments to your images to get your desired look & feel. 

Lightroom requires a monthly subscription, however you can trial the program (which I did & I encourage you to do before making your purchase, simply to ensure you are happy with the program). I want you to be happy with your purchase so I would rather be completely upfront with you & hopefully assist you in transitioning into Lightroom (should you not already have it). 

Overall, Lightroom in my opinion is the best & only way to edit high quality & incredible imagery - this is the only program we use to edit. 

You can watch an abundance of how to guides on YouTube, but I watched this one:




Is Lightroom hard to use?

Not with presets & an abundance of YouTube tutorials! 

You only have to make minor tweaks to settings such as exposure, temperature &/ or tint with our presets to create beautiful images of your own. We designed our presets this way, so that most of the hard work is done for you & you can focus on taking amazing photos! It might look a little scary, but trust me, once you have a play, you’ll get the hang of it! 

You can always email or DM me too if you are having any trouble. 




Will my photos look exactly like yours? 

The base colours, tone curve (highlights, shadows etc) will be replicated. However & this is VERY important - every photo situation is unique (different locations, lighting, camera etc) so you will need to adjust things like exposure, temperature & tint to achieve your desired look. This is the beauty of it, you can put your own special twist on our presets, or enjoy them like we do. 

I also highly encourage you to shoot your images in RAW format, not JPEG, as RAW is the best way to capture as much data in an image & essentially allow you to more deeply manipulate a photo. These presets were made to support RAW images, though will still work on JPEG. 




Can I use jpeg images, or is RAW better? 

RAW is definitely better & I highly encourage you to shoot in this way, if you don’t already. It’s a simple change to your camera settings, which make a huge difference in post processing. You can still shoot & use my presets in JPEG but I do highly encourage RAW. 



Why should I purchase these presets? 

If you want to up your Instagram game, save yourself loads of time & get the SALTY LUXE look, these presets are for you. 




Are these presets compatible with Photoshop?

No they are not, they were made for Lightroom. 



What if I don’t love my presets?

Sales are final, but please do email me if you are having trouble, I would love to support you. 




Can I re-sell your presets?

No, please don’t. I have worked really hard on these & have made them available to help you reach your creative goals. Please respect us & do not re-sell.
