Lightroom Presets and brushes are designed to enhance the beauty of your photos in just a few clicks. They make your photo editing effective, efficient and easy while helping you stay organized. Check out these Lightroom Presets and Brushes for artistic enhancement of your collection for that perfect look.

What are Lightroom Presets?

Lightroom Presets are sets of saved settings, effects, and edits that are used to add effects to and changing the looks of your photographs and images. They can be used to give your photographs a whole different feel, as well as help improve their appearance and quality. At Sleeklens, we have created a number of presets that challenge the status quo, and which aim to challenge the existing photo editing companies. This is because they are of the highest quality and their diverse nature makes them suitable for almost any form and type of photography. These presets are going to take your photography to the next level.

Adobe Lightroom Presets vs Brushes

Perhaps you never heard of brushes before, but these fantastic tools actually work on the very same fashion as presets, only that they are applied locally. Sleeklens as an author of Lightroom products are constantly looking for inspiration with the help of finest photographers in order to give Lightroom users smart and efficient solutions so they can handle most of the postproduction process without requiring extra software. By using the Adjustment Brush tool you are establishing a whole new level of postproduction work to your images and broadening your limits. Enhance your photography work with the help of carefully crafted Adjustment Brush presets (also known as Lightroom Brushes) which can become loyal tools in a blink of an eye.

How to install presets and brushes in Lightroom 

Our customers always come first, and this is why we have created guides on how to install and use these presets if you are new to Adobe Lightroom. We have detailed, step-by-step instructions as well as a video that will make it very easy for you to follow along. All of these in a bid to ensure that regardless if you are a beginner just starting out with Adobe Lightroom, or a seasoned user who would like a refresher course, you will be able to catch on pretty fast and be creating your own masterpieces in no time at all.

How to get started with Adobe Lightroom is by far one of the most frequently asked questions we encounter. While we do have a detailed step-by-step tutorial that is very easy to follow, as well as a video to show you how to go about it, people still ask. We take the time and effort to explain these steps to them, as well as showing them how our presets will help elevate their status in the photographic community. Another relatively frequently asked question is how to create their own filters or brushes. Creating Lightroom goodies takes a keen eye for detail and a sense of photographic style that you can call your own and that is truly you. If you do not have all of these things, we encourage you to use our presets to create the photographs and images you need. As we have stated above, all of our presets are quite easy to edit and customize. After learning all the controls and adjustments that are available under Lightroom’s hood, you will be customizing our presets and using them to create your own breathtaking images and photographs in no time.

Who is Sleeklens?

We are a group of designers and photographers who were having a hard time finding presets to fit our purposes. After looking around for and trying literally hundreds of presets, we decided to start creating our own. Our Lightroom Presets and Brush bundles are the product of brainstorming and collaboration by designers and photographers who, for a long time, have been working with photography and Adobe Lightroom on a daily basis. We create beautiful, creative and easy to use Adobe products

We have created bundles for just about anything you could possibly need presets for. This includes vintage, black & white, golden hour and many others. We make every effort to ensure not only that our Adobe Lightroom inspired products are of the highest quality but also that they are easy to use. Our templates are beginner-friendly – beginners will have no problems getting started with LR, while those with a bit of experience and skill will find it easy to edit and customize to their own liking.

Our creative and carefully crafted Lightroom presets & Photoshop Actions eliminate most of the time it takes to create amazing photographs. We do most of the work, so you do not have to. The workflow does most of the work for you, so you are left to worry only about what matters, creating breathtaking images and photographs. At Sleeklens, we are always looking for ways to improve our products and services. This is why we continuously will be adding more presets to our collection of Lightroom workflows. This is also the reason we are always standing by to help and answer questions, any time. In short, we always put you and your photography needs first.

Do I have to own an expensive camera?

Your choice of camera is a truly personal one. Many people ask us which camera works best with our products, and we simply tell them that it’s the one they are holding. This is because no one knows the camera you have better than you do, and most likely you know your particular camera better than you know any other.  So fear not, the camera you have is precisely the right one. As long as you know how to use it to take beautiful photographs.

We are sure that regardless of the presets you purchase, be they stand-alone presets or the Sleeklens Complete LR Collection, you are going to get awesome presets that will let your creativity and photographic talent shine. Whether you decide to use our presets as-is or edit and customize them, we always love to see what you create with them.  We would appreciate it if you took the time to share your photographs and images on our exclusive Facebook page, which we give you access to after your purchase has been processed. This is another step in allowing others to learn from you while showing what you and our Adobe filters can accomplish.

I am a new user in Adobe Lightroom, how can presets help me grow as a photographer?

A vital part of the learning process inside the fantastic photography work is to learn from the work of others as well as your own. By using LR presets and brushes not only you are learning which parameters are essential in order to improve the natural conditions of an image, to post-produce it if we are talking about a RAW image file or to add fantastic effects but also you are learning your best and worse points while doing a photography job.

When you use Lightroom goodies such as presets and brushes you are expanding the limits of your creativity while having fun in the process; now you can take a close look at your camera parameters and know beforehand how the final image is going to look like: predict adjustments, learn how to set a proper exposure value that will require only a few tweaks inside Lightroom.

Not only an intuitive software is required only to grow as a photographer but also enough practice with the right resources can set a difference without you even noticing it. We can guarantee you won’t regret the time spent inside Lightroom’s interface after comparing the job you have done before you ever heard of Lightroom (and digital postproduction) existence.

What is a “Workflow”?

When we talk about workflow we mean the process done inside a software from the very first moment you decide to open it to the final product produced by it. If we talk about Lightroom’s Workflow then we are referring to the process made by the user from importing the picture to the output process going through the vital and ever cared to Develop process.

It is not enough to know what a workflow is but also it is needed to create an efficient one in order to avoid losing interest in the software and producing a nice result at less time possible.

Sleeklens keeps users’ needs in mind and designed carefully crafted workflow products that set a revolution inside Lightroom users’ communities: it is not enough to work with presets but also to know how to process your image correctly since the very first moment you plug your media storage device to your pc to the moment you define which tools are you going to use for the job needed.

Communities of users with the same interests as you, in-depth guides on how to produce amazing post-production results, fully designed suites of Lightroom products which enhance the outcome of the final product… all of that and more is what you can expect of Sleeklens to sum into your own workflow.

FAQs

What do I need to get started with Lightroom?
Well, one of the most important things you will need is a computer, a camera and of course the Adobe Lightroom Program. From there, you shoot some images, install HQ presets and you are on your way to professional image editing.

What cameras can I use to shoot my images?
Although this is one of the most frequently asked questions have from some of our newer visitors, the answer is whichever one you have. It is true that the better the camera you have the better the images you produce but at the end of the day, if you know how to handle the camera you have, you will have a really nice time editing your images in Lightroom.

What is this I hear about RAW and JPEG?
As you may know, all files have a format. There are several image formats that common cameras shoot in with two of the most common ones being RAW and JPEG.

OK, so what is the difference?
The main difference is the depth of quality and features, image size and the ability to make non-destructive changes to the images you shoot. JPEG images come in smaller file sizes, are usually of a lesser quality then RAW images because the RAW format captures a lot more detail and it is much easier to make non-destructive changes on a RAW image than a JPEG image.

That is all fine but what format should I be shooting in?
Most professional photographers advise that you shoot in both formats. The RAW images will be for your editing work while the JPEG will work more like your originals.

How will I know what format I am shooting in?
Well, if you have not made any changes to the settings on your camera you are probably shooting in JPEG. That said, you should consult your user manual or the manufacturer website to know what format you are shooting in as well as how to adjust or change the format.

And all your Adobe Products work with all these formats?
Yes, all our workflows are compatible with both RAW and JPEG formats. It is advised that you work with RAW images because they produce images of better quality and all changes are very easy to reverse should you make a mistake or need to start afresh.

Have you been featured anywhere on the internet?
As a matter of fact yes! We have been featured on Infoparrot.com as having some of the best free adobe Lightroom downloads and Lightroomfanatic.com – awarded because of our continuous high-quality products and customer service.
