Lightroom Presets Bundle now Available

The first 6 of my Lightroom Preset packs are now available for sale in a digital bundle. I noticed that some people were buying all the presets at once and I wanted to make it a bit easier so I created a bundle. I also wanted to be able to give a discount if you buy all 6 at once, so I took the opportunity of the Steely Blue launch to introduce a bundle as well.

The normal price to buy the presets separately would be €75 – So you save €5 by getting the bundle. In addition there is a special launch discount, so for the next two weeks (until September 1st 2014) it is on sale at just €65 (which means you’re effectively getting one of the cheaper €10 presets for free) The bundle contains the following 6 sets of the Lightroom Presets:

  • Landscape Gold
  • Steely Blue
  • Monolith
  • Vivid Extreme
  • Quick Lux
  • Film Candy

The Bundle contains the same exact preset files that you would get if you downloaded the presets individually, and so contains 6 individual zip files containing each of the preset packs and their respective documentation. For full details see the product page for the bundle.

Steely Blue for Lightroom Now Available

I’m delighted to announce that my latest set of Lightroom Presets, “Steely Blue” for Lightroom is now available. “Steely Blue” is a set of presets for Lightroom designed to bring out detail and enhance the colours in an image without creating a style that looks too much like a special effect. The look also enhances the dynamic range of the picture to which it is applied, by compressing the highlights and enhancing shadow detail.

There’s a long story behind Steely Blue, and it’s unusual name. I originally created the core look of this preset ages ago. In fact it was one of my first Lightroom presets that I created for myself. I’ve used this look extensively in my own work. The style actually came about by accident. I was working on a way to make images from my Nikon cameras have the traditional “Canon” colours (heresy, I know!) It was more to see if it could be done than anything. Anyway, the result ended up being something rather unique, and I really liked it. I found that on a lot of the initial images that I was using it, it gave them the cool steely look that was made popular in some science fiction movies (in particular those of James Cameron) and so I decided to call it steely blue.

It sat in my library of personal presets for ages, and I even made an Aperture version of it at one point and sold it on the Aperture blog. When I started doing Lightroom presets, I knew that I wanted to make Steely Blue into a proper product, and so, I saved it till last, as it is the one I use myself the most often, and the one that I’m really close to.
