Huge List of Free Lightroom Presets for Portrait and Landscape Photography
Check out this huge list of free Lightroom presets for portrait and landscape photography! Lightroom is an amazing photo management and editing tool. It’s easy to forget how much work it was to process digital photographs before Lightroom.
One of the things that makes Lightroom so special is the ability to create develop recipes or presets that you can use over and over again. We’ve sorted through the bazillion websites (ok, not quite that many!) that offer presets so that you don’t have to. Below is a comprehensive list of free Lightroom presets for portrait and landscape photography with no strings attached.
The list has been separated by Lightroom 3 and older and Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC and newer. There’s no junk on this list!
Note: Many of the above presets are also compatible with older versions of Lightroom.
Of course, be sure to check out our free presets for Lightroom including our extremely popular workflow presets.
How to Install Lightroom Presets
Download and extract your presets onto your desktop (or someplace convenient). Next open Lightroom and navigate to either the Library or Develop Module. Click Edit -> Preferences from the top menu to open the preferences dialog window. Click on the Presets tab (at the top) and then Show Lightroom Presets Folder. Your computer’s file explorer window should pop open. Open the Lightroom folder and then open the Develop Presets folder.
Copy the presets within Develop Presets folder. Now you must close and re-open Lightroom for the presets to show up. You will find the presets in the left panel under the Develop Module.
