I’M LAUNCHING PRESETS! (What they look like, before/afters and how to download)

As you can probably tell by the title, I’m launching new presets! After my first launch, I really wanted to separate the seasonal packs to give each season their own chance to shine, and so these new packs were born!

You guys know I love photography, and I’ve been carefully crafting presets for my own use for a couple of years now. I have about 16 which I generally lean towards for the majority of my photos, all crafted specifically for each season, and now you’ll be able to use them too!

To give you an idea of what these presets look like, where they’ll be available and how to use them, I figured I’d compile all the details into one big post so that it’s something you can always refer back to. So if you’re looking for all the information, just keep reading!

THE BASICS

Before I show you what the presets look like, I’ll give you a quick rundown of the basics. All of my presets are created for Lightroom, and they will be available for both mobile and desktop. I know that not everybody has both, so I wanted to give options. These will be priced at £8 per pack, and you will receive 4 presets in each pack.

For people that like to go between the mobile and desktop apps, don’t fear – there’s a special pack for you too. If you want the presets in both the mobile and desktop edition, I have created packs that combine both. These packs will be priced at the slightly higher £12, but you’re basically getting one pack for half of the price.

I’m currently selling 16 presets in total (though this may change in the future!) – 4 in each of the Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter packs. However, if you do want all four packs, I will be selling the Four Seasons pack which gives you all 16 presets! This will be £24 for the mobile or desktop packs, and £36 for the combined mobile and desktop pack (so four packs for the price of three!).

These presets will be available to buy exclusively from Gumroad, and release on Monday 1st February.

Now, onto what the presets look like…

THE SPRING PACK

So this pack has 4 presets that are my go-to for spring – we’re talking super bright with rosy hues. All four of these presets are colour edits, and are super easy to use. You may need to make a few adjustments after the preset has been applied to create the best edit for your photo (as with all presets), but these will give you a great base to start with.

The Spring Pack includes:

IN BLOOM – bright and cool-toned, with saturated pinks and purples.

BRIGHT AND BUDDING – very bright with rosy hues, literally like looking through rose-coloured glasses.

THE SUMMER PACK

The Summer Pack gives me all of the beauty vibes I want – think saturated turquoise, warm tones, and some retro feel. The four presets included in this pack are honestly the ones I reach for the most (maybe tied with the Autumn Pack). It has a great range of bright and colourful to vintage and moody, so you get everything in one!

The Summer Pack includes:

BEACH DAYS – high saturated blues to make those ocean shots really pop!

SAND DUNES – cool-toned and bright, great for making every beach look tropical and white sand.

THE AUTUMN PACK

This is another one of my favourites (I mean who am I kidding? They’re all my favourite). Lots of earthy tones with super rich and vibrant hues made specifically for the colours of autumn – what more could you want?

AESTHETIC AUTUMN – super rich tones and brown hues for bringing out the quintessential colours of autumn.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD/USE MOBILE PRESETS

After purchasing one of the mobile packs you will receive four/sixteen DNG files. Download these files to your phone. Open the Lightroom Mobile app and create an album labelled ‘The Auburn Agenda Presets’ by heading to the main Library page and selecting the plus symbol to the right of ‘Albums’.

Import the DNG files to this album by selecting the button with the image and plus sign in the lower left-hand corner. You can import the files from either your camera roll or your files, depending on where you choose to save them. Choose the DNG files you wish to import. Starting with the first DNG image, click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner and select ‘Create Preset’ from the dropdown menu, then name your preset.

Repeat these steps for the remaining DNG images.

To use your presets, select the image you would like to edit. Scroll through the edit options on the bottom of the screen and select ‘Presets’. Click through your new presets until you decide on the one which has the best fit. Select that preset, press the tick in the bottom left-hand corner, and the new edit will be automatically saved to your Lightroom Cloud.

HOW TO DOWNLOAD/USE DESKTOP PRESETS

HOW TO DOWNLOAD/USE MOBILE AND DESKTOP PRESET PACKS

After purchasing you will receive two/four zip files, each labelled with ‘Mobile’ and ‘Desktop’ labels. Download these files to your laptop/computer (you will still be able to use your mobile presets as normal, but the zip files will be easier to download on a computer/laptop than a phone), then open them to receive two/eight folders containing four DNG files each (8/32 total, depending on which pack you buy).

Open the Lightroom Desktop app and create an album labelled ‘The Auburn Agenda Presets’. Import the DNG files to this album. Starting with the first DNG image, select presets and then click on the three dots in the upper right-hand corner. From there, select ‘Create Preset’ from the dropdown menu. Name your preset, making sure to specify ‘Mobile’ or ‘Desktop’ in the preset name.

Repeat these steps for the remaining DNG images.
