My new Lightroom 4 Presets (Expired Film Look)

January 18, 2012

I’ve been playing around with the Lightroom 4 (beta) and I created a free preset for presetpond.

This is called “Expired Film” and it uses the new features in the develop module (RGB curves). It comes in 3 flavors: Normal, Cold and Warm.

Download this preset here:

      Hi barth,
      Sorry for the late reply, I think I’ve missed the notification of the comment and I seldom check this blog!
      Photoshop is a lot more powerful than Lightroom and Aperture, so you can create similar, and better presets with PS.
      To create something like this preset, you just need a couple of Adjustment Layers with the RGB Curves.
      One to crush the blacks, one to pull them back up plus one last curves to apply an overall color tone..
