Free Lightroom Presets – Spot Retouching and Removal
Last week I did a post on removing spots from your photos if you’re printing (and just how important it is). Well, it got such a good response that it got me thinking about some Lightroom presets and creating some for visualizing spots to make them easier to remove. Now, I know there’s ways to create a preset in the Tone Curve panel, but I also know people love the actual Presets panel too, so I wanted to make some presets that worked there too.
They’re pretty simple. There’s one for skies (and outdoor photos in general, but mostly skies) and one for studio work (mostly white/gray backdrops). I’ve also included one for resetting the Tone Curve panel, but it’ll leave everything else as is so you won’t lose any other changes to your photos.
Here’s a few samples:
