I’m happy to announce that my first new set of Lightroom Presets for 2016 is now available. Called “Coffee Tones” the set is, as the name suggests, inspired by the look of coffee. It has a number of looks in both colour and black and white. All have some variation of warm earthy coffee coloured tones.
Coffee Tones is the first of a new set of smaller “mini packs” that I’m planning on releasing this year. Smaller than some of my other presets, it will be available for a very reasonable price of just €5. There are 10 main looks and a few of these come with some variations too. As always, there is extensive documentation included, and you can download the readme file before you buy to see what’s involved if you would like.
Unlike my other sets, Coffee Tones requires Lightroom CC 2015.1 or Lightroom 6.1 or higher. The presets make use of Lightroom’s new Dehaze function to add contrast and warmth and so require the newer versions of Lightroom which support dehaze. The best version is the latest version of Lightroom CC as it includes full dehze controls, however, the dehaze function is supported in Lightroom 6.1, but you just don’t get any controls for it.
I know that it’s kind of a pain the way Adobe implemented this with two different versions of Lightroom, but using dehaze is an integral part of these looks, and it is important to the effect. Please make sure you have the correct version of Lightroom before buying Coffee Tones.
Here are some examples of Coffee Tones in Action. For more samples see the Product Page.
