Watch our entire series of tutorials on how to work with “Forgotten Postcards Workflow” here
This is the only workflow you will ever need when it comes to vintage/retro and nostalgic Lightroom effects. A “must have” for photographers and everyone else who is serious about Vintage photography!
If you have this workflow you can show off your amazing reworked photos with rich tints, gentle tones and warm, heart melting nostalgia. The Forgotten Postcard workflow will include 112 presets and brushes, enough effects and tools to last you a lifetime. The unzipped files can be installed on the newer versions of Lightroom, like 4, 5 and 6, as well as Adobe Creative Cloud. Both your JPEG and RAW images can be edited in the workflow and you can use them if you have PC or Mac.
Before trying out your new workflow, you will need to install the new presets and brushes. You will have video tutorials at your disposal, in case this is your first time using presets in Lightroom. Written instructions will also be in your downloaded zip file once you make a purchase. A guide on layering or stacking presets will teach you how to make the best of the new items in your toolbox. There are video tutorials to show you the different options you will have with this essential workflow, but you will be allowed access to a private Sleeklens group on Facebook, where you will see all kinds of completed works. If you are hesitant, you can download 2 Presets and 1 Brush included in the workflow, as well as a one sample image to try the effects and see how they work.
There will be 9 all in one presets in your collection, so you can see the effects applied professionally. If you want to try making your own, unique look, there will be 7 base presets, 6 exposure presets, color and tone correctors, and 6 polish presets to help you find the right contrast, clarity or sharpness of your images. There are 88 presets and 24 brushes in total, so you are bound to find several that will agree with your style.
