The Bleached Bronze Presets come in three main parts. The first is a set of “set-up” presets, designed to set your images to the correct profile based on your camera, and also to set some common settings such as turning on chromatic aberration reduction and automatic lens correction.
The second is the main Bleached Bronze presets themselves.
Finally the third part is another folder of presets called “Grad Grain and Vignette”. This contains a number of presets designed to add various grain effects, graduated filters and vignettes.

* use for newer Sony cameras that have supplied Adobe profiles
Bleached Bronze is designed to work with RAW files, however it will work with JPEG files too, but may produce different results. Bleached Bronze does not use any special profiles, or camera specific versions, other than the included setup presets. As such it is compatible with all camera manufacturers. Bleached Bronze has been specifically tested with cameras from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fuji, Olympus and Panasonic.
Bleached Bronze is supplied with comprehensive “read-me” documentation to help you use and get the best from it. Some of the instructions assume a reasonable level of Lightroom knowledge, and may not be suited to absolute beginners. You can download the manual to see if it is suitable for you.
Some General Note about Presets
Not all images are suitable for all presets. Some images just won’t produce pleasing results and won’t be appropriate for the type of presets you may be trying to use, depending on the subject matter.
It is also important to note that any preset won’t be a magic bullet. Presets should be considered as a starting point. More often than not images may require additional adjustments after applying presets. Sometimes you will need to adjust exposure or brightness and contrast depending on your image. When trying presets, consider making a duplicate the version that you’re working on so you don’t loose any adjustments you’ve already made, or make use of Lightroom’s snapshot feature.
If you are having difficulties installing the Lightroom presets or have any questions please visit the support page for details.
