What are presets?
Presets are a collection of pre-designed settings in Adobe Lightroom & Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) that give your (RAW) photo files color/tonal parameters with a single click on the selected preset.t.
What parameters regulate the presets?
Presets control most of the parameters available in Lightroom/ACR, with the exception of exposure and white balance, which should be adjusted to your liking. We can also make changes to these parameters ourselves (such as Tone Curve, HSL, Split Toning, Calibration), it all depends on what final effect we want to achieve in the photo. Sometimes small changes in white balance or exposure make a big difference to the final result of processing.
Do I have to shoot in RAW to use presets?
Presets are designed for RAW files, which are characterized by a large tonal range and lack of compression. RAW files allow you to maintain the highest fidelity of image reproduction offered by the camera, which gives the possibility of much better and more accurate processing of the file in a program such as Lightroom or ACR. Therefore, we strongly recommend using the RAW format in the camera when taking photos.
On files in .JPG format, presets will also work, but with limitations for this format. (small tonal range, high compression, flat image)z)
Are presets suitable for all types of photos?
Presets are designed for photos taken outdoors and indoors.
However, keep in mind that presets do not save incorrectly taken photos. You should always take care of the best quality of the output photo. Appropriate exposure, correctly selected white balance, or a conscious choice of the environment in which we photograph will be our ally in the later stage of photo editing, and the work will be much more effective.a.
