Photo Editing Tip: Using Presets

Presets (aka filters) are an excellent way to speed up your editing process. Presets allow you to apply your preferred edits in ONE CLICK! In Lightroom (desktop and mobile), you can save your own presets if you find yourself making the same exact edits over + over again or you can import presets from other places (many bloggers and photographers sell preset collections).

My Photo Editing courses both come with an exclusive Miss Freddy Preset Collection of 10 Lightroom Presets that work on both desktop + mobile. Here’s a quick look at two of my favorites!

the Miss Freddy preset collection

Here’s a quick look at all 8 of the basic color + black and white presets in the Miss Freddy Preset Collection. There are 4 color presets, 4 black and white presets, and 2 presets with effects that target specific photo issues. They’re meant to be subtle, natural, and timeless!
