With the announcement of my Osore: Sararīman Lightroom Presets (by the way 10% discount is still available, just use "abdz"). When the idea of creating presets started to conceptualize in my mind, during my process/research I was found in front of much-saturated content on the subbject about Lightroom Presets. One of the reasons why Ligthtroom has quite a few changes since the mid-year. This is why I think this article is a great opportunity to share my tips and experience. Let's get a closer get a closer look at different ways to "Import presets on your Desktop and/or the Mobile app" more specifically on Adobe Lightroom Classic CC and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Mobile. What is the difference between Lightroom CC vs Photoshop Lightroom Mobile? At first, it can totally bring confusion let's just say that Lightroom is no longer one application. The original Lightroom is now called Lightroom Classic CC and the cloud-based application is now called Lightroom CC. Is it clearer? No! *Closing the loop Lightroom CC vs Photoshop Lightroom Mobile What do you need? Lightroom Classic CC Lightroom CC Lightroom CC on iPad Lightroom CC on iPhone Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC on Android Always make sure to update your Lightroom applications to the latest version. If you are a paid monthly subscriber, always helpful when installing new presets. Import Presets on Lightroom Classic CC For starters, there are multiple ways to import your presets into Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, I will share how I did it with my presets. First, you download the .Zip file from the presets you dearly wish to get. Go to Lightroom > Preferences Dialog > Presets Tab Under Location, you shall see one or two buttons. "Show Lightroom Develop Presets" and/or "Show all Other Lightroom Presets" When clicked on "Show all Other Lightroom Presets", Lighroom will show you where are all the settings folders are. Look for the "CameraRaw" folder then "Settings" Drag and drop your new presets folder Quit and restart Lightroom and you shall see them added on the Presets section Show all Other Lightroom Presets More simpler way? First, you download the .Zip file from the presets you dearly wish to get. File > Import Develop Profiles and Presets Voilà! File > Import Develop Profiles and Presets What happened to the lr.template? If you are like me who have used presets before April 2018, you might have noticed a new file type .xmp since. What is it? It's quite simple, the new file called .xmp. It has been created for whatever you make in Lightroom or CameraRaw, you will both be able to see the presets and profiles across both applications and vice-versa. Import Presets on Lighroom CC on Mobile Again, there are multiple ways to import your presets into Lightroom CC on Mobile, here is an easy way! First, make sure you are logged into your Creative Cloud, very important and that you have Lightroom CC on Mobile installed on your iPhone or Android phone. Don't worry too much about the storage factor with Lightroom CC because we are only using as a transfer app in order for you to use your presets from Lightroom Classic to CC Mobile. Back to Lightroom Classic, first pick a preset that would want to import or a bunch of presets that you would want to store in a folder. To find the preset file, right-click on it and choose "Show in Finder". Then start dragging! Now back to Lightroom CC, go to File > Import Profiles and Presets... Find your folder and click Import. Voilà! You will notice that you shall see your presets right in your Lightroom CC on iPhone and Lightroom CC on Android. File > Import Profiles and Presets.. Get my presets as seen in this article
Today is a little special for me, I wanted to share my latest side-project/product with you guys on ABDZ. Introducing Osore: Sararīman Adobe Lightroom Presets, launching with four presets fully customizable for Desktop and Mobile. A little backstory? During our escapade in Japan, I became really fascinated with "The Salaryman". In definition, it's an employee (mostly male) wearing a white collar shirt who would earn his "salary" based on individual abilities rather than on seniority. With this fascination in mind, it became a mission for me to wander the streets of Japan in search of the Sararīman. For a limited time, I would like to share a 10% code only exclusive to ABDZ (use "abdz") and make sure to use the hashtag #Osore_Series if you ever wanna share your pictures on Instagram, Twitter, and elsewhere. Cheers! View this post on Instagram (Swipe to see before/after) . Introducing Osore: Sararīman Presets.

Which means "Fear" and for this instance, it could produce more than one meaning particularly if you think of "karōshi" where it means "Death from Overwork". This undivided culture became an attractive display for me where at night, I would wander the streets of every city we visited and searching for the Sararīman. Introducing Osore: Sararīman Presets.

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a sharpness effect on your photo using lightroom, it's almost like an fake hdr effect and at the same time the result is very close to what Dave Hill gets on his photos. With the creation of hdr photos, it feels like an window was open to a new way and look on photographs, the lights and colors so bright and sharp, the result was so amazing that was hard not to fall in love when you saw some hdr photos for the first time. Hdr photo also opened the mind of thousands of photoshopers to try to recreate the same effect without the work of taking a bunch of photos with different exposures or so on. That so desired shortcut would turn your simple pictures into great photos. Well, a lot of time went by and a lot of people still experiencing with some of these effects, looking for that special recipe that can bring your work to the next level. Some artists have been using some great effects on their photos and also defined this new style of photography like the very well known Dave Hill, the guy that puts a doubt in every ones mind about how he does it. Searching for the same answers as everyone else I dug into google looking to learn more from other peoples experience and learned that only very few experiences were successful and worth a try. The best way to approach this was told by Scott Kelby and here I will share with you the experience I had by following his steps. First thing you going to need is Adobe Lightroom, if you don't have it don't hesitate to download a 30 day trial here. We are not going to go dept into lightroom, just the basic knowledge we need to pull up this effect but if you look around and start playing you will notice that it isn't that hard to get around this software. Our first step is to open Lighroom and import the photo you want to work on, I am going to use one of my own photos that I took in NYC a couple years ago. Click on the images for a bigger view Now we are going to change to Develop mode so we can start working on our photo, we only going to work with the Basics. It’s important to realize there is no perfect recipe, you have to feel the changes as you make it to get a better result out of it. The first change we are going to make is to bring Recovery all the way to 100. Our next step we will bring the Fill Light up, but when we do that the photo gets really light and we have to use Blacks to make the photo look normal again. So you have to have in mind that as much Fill Light you put you have to always follow with Blacks, so you will decide how much of a light or a dark look you photo will have, I personally like to bring up Fill light until a point that it’s not making the photo look all white and follow with Blacks with only half of the number of Fill Light. In this case I will use Fill Light 80 and Blacks 40 (don’t hesitate to experience other settings) Our next step is to bring the Clarity up to +100 And now we are going to give more Vibrance to the photo but we don’t want to get way to vibrant because that will make you lose some of the lights on the photo so I bring the Vibrance to +70 (This is something that will change depending on the photo you working on so you need to get a good feeling of how vibrant you want it to be) For our final touch we will desaturate the photo just enough so it will still have color and that desaturated feeling to it as well, so depending on how much Vibrance you apply you may have to apply less saturation to get the right look. Set the Saturation to -60. Depending on the photo you may have to change up a bit as I said before but the steps are very simple and here you can take a look on the before and after result.
