28 Feb My Presets are finally available!! + FAQ
you are finally able to shop my presets!! HAVE A LOOK AT THEM HERE. I’m super excited to see how you like them 😀
Overall I created 10 customized Preset Packs for you guys which consist of 10 different Presets each. So there is something for everyone 🙂 Furthermore, you can also purchase the Master Collection which contains all 100 (!!!) presets. This really is the best deal because you save more than 50% compared to as if you would shop each pack by itself 😉
Today I wanna do a FAQ and answer those questions about my editing and presets that I got asked most often:
1) Which editing program do you use?
Adobe Lightroom. In my opinion Lightroom is the best editing program currently on the market. I simply love editing my pics with it. Find out a bit more about the program in this blog post here.
NEW: My presets are now also available for the FREE mobile app “Lightroom CC“!! Read about my mobile presets HERE.
2) What are presets?
Presets are some kind of filters for Lightroom which you can apply above a picture so that you won’t need much time and effort editing your each picture by itself anymore.
3) Do I need to own a professional camera if I wanna use your presets?
Absolutely NOT! Many of my pictures have been taken with my iPhone. Especially for mobile pictures you will see a huge difference after applying my presets 🙂
4) Are your presets suited for .jpeg or .raw pictures?
For BOTH! I sometimes shoot in .jpeg and sometimes in .raw and my presets work for either one. In general shooting in .raw has the advantage that the picture carries a few more details but it is definitely not a must shooting in .raw. Especially for beginners I usually recommend taking pictures in .jpeg. My presets work for both!
5) Which of your presets are most suited for me?
I divided my presets into 10 different categories via destinations I’ve visited such as Asia, Morocco, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, USA etc. So if you are traveling to one of those 10 destinations the preset pack is definitely suited for you. Otherwise I recommend you to have a look at all the before & after pictures of each pack. For instance the “Abu Dhabi Preset Pack” contains some really nice safari presets which would also work super well on Africa pictures. However, I can definitely recommend you to order the Master Collection because it contains all 100 (!!!) presets. And you also save over 50% by ordering it 😉
6) How much do your presets cost?
My preset packs consisting of 10 different customized presets cost 45€ each and the Master Collection consisting of over 100 presets costs 199€. This is a lot cheaper than what most bloggers sell their presets for so I hope you are happy about this 🙂
7) Are your prestes only suited for women?
Definitely NOT! My boyfriend always uses my presets too and they look amaaazing on him 😀 Thus, my presets are also suited for men or for couple pictures!
8) How can I import presets into Lightroom after purchasing them?
The best is to just follow the steps in this video:
9) What can I do after applying one of your presets on my picture?
I usually first check which preset fits best on my picture.
Afterwards there are only two little settings that I apply to customize my picture:
1) I first adjust the Light by setting the “Lightning” to lighter or darker.
2) Thereafter, I adjust the skin color by setting the orange tone “Luminance” to softer or stronger. Btw this is also a great way to apply some “artificial tan” 😀
If you have selected the right preset your picture should be ready to post now 🙂 If you are not completely satisfied with it yet try to play around a bit with the settings “Dynamic” or “Saturation” and “Clarity” or “Sharpen”. But the biggest part should be already done by simply applying the two settings above. You will see: You will soon be a pro in using Lightroom 😉
10) Are your presets also suited for the mobile version of Lightroom?
YES!! From now on my presets are also available for the free “Lightroom CC” App 🙂 Read about my mobile presets HERE.
Those are all the 10 questions which came into my mind. However, if you have some which have not been answered on here feel free to write them in the comments so I’d be happy to answer them as well 🙂
Because you always ask for before & after editing pictures find some more below. And then just have a look at the presets yourself HERE 🙂
Definitely let me know afterwards how you like them. I’d also love to see your before and after pictures after using my presets so please send them to me via Instagram Direct or share them on Instagram @pilotmadeleinepresets & #pilotmadeleinepresets. I cannot wait to see your pictures 🙂
