Piet Van den Eynde's Colour Grading Lightroom Presets

Over 80 Develop Presets for Adobe Lightroom

After my critically acclaimed Black & White preset bundle, I'm proud to present my latest Lightroom Preset pack: Piet Van den Eynde's Colour Grading Presets for Lightroom . As the name implies, these presets are all about color tweaks. 

Have you ever seen a popular movie or television series and then a 'making-of' of that movie? You've probably noted that a the color and contrast was changed, often dramatically. This process of giving a movie or a television series its own signature style is called 'color grading'.

For this preset package, I've gathered inspiration from movies, series but also places and people and I've bundled a number of looks in this preset package. These presets will turn your image's colors upside down, inside out en then some. They'll add vignettes, tone curves and sometimes even grain and graduated filters. 

As with my Black & White presets, there are two broad categories: the 'one click looks' presets change lots of settings in one single click: they're meant to get you in the ball park, and sometimes they'll even let you score a homerun with that single click. Sometimes, you'll need to tweak the results slightly, though and that's where the Finishing Touches presets come in: these change specific settings only and therefore can be added to the result of a 'One Click' preset. By simply hovering over a preset's name, you can see a preview in the Navigator window, which makes for a very intuitive workflow.

Here's what's in the box (well, in the digital download, really):

  • 80 'One Click' presets, fully compatible with Lightroom 6 (mostly with Lightroom 5 and partly with Lightroom 4). These presets are actually 40 different looks that come in both a 'regular' and an 'Auto Tone' version.
  • 150 + 'Finishing Touches' presets, fully compatible with Lightroom 6 (mostly with Lightroom 5 and partly with Lightroom 4)
  • a PDF guide with the how-to on installation and some Before + After photographs to show you how the presets can be used

Here’s what some users were saying about my presets:

 
I love the fact that I can use the Finishing Touches presets in combination with the presets I already had. Compared to other preset packs out there, these are a bargain.
— Ian
With other presets, I often have to fiddle around, but the One Click presets give me a nice result with minimal tweaking. I’ve paid a lot more for a lot less.
— Kenneth
 
 
These are a really strong addition to my currently used presets: there are so many possibilities that I can achieve almost anything I wanted with my pictures!
— Rob
