There are four main versions of the Landscape Gold Lightroom presets. The names are based on popular “Carats” of Gold, and each version has a different level of tinting, so that some add a hint of gold, while the stronger ones tint your image significantly in a golden colour. Each “carat” or version has a number of “strengths”. There are three strengths of each version, “lite”, “medium” and “strong” and each of these has two versions, one with a vignette and one without a vignette. A number of modifiers are also included so that you can easily tweak settings such as vignettes and grain with a single click. There are also a number of pre-built grad effects included also.

Some General Note about Presets
Not all images are suitable for all presets. Some images just wont 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.
