275+ Excellent Free Adobe Lightroom Presets

Lightroom is one of the most popular options for photo editing, and with good reason. Those who process a large number of photos can increase efficiency and decrease the time spent processing and editing thanks to a number of different features.

One of those features that allows for a great deal of efficiency and saved time is the use of presets, particularly in the develop module.

With the help of presets you can apply the same effects to photos over and over again, and you can even apply them to a large number of photos all at once. Lightroom comes with a small number of presets already installed, plus you can download free presets, purchase professional presets, or create your own.

One the best things about Lightroom presets is that they are completely editable and flexible. You can apply a preset and then make minor or major adjustments to those settings to suit the needs of a specific photo. Since the results of presets will always vary a little from one photo to the next, this flexibility is key.

There are a number of different sites where you can download free presets. In this post we’ll showcase 275+ excellent free presets that you can download and put to use with your own photos. Don’t forget that we also offer 25 free Lightroom presets to our email subscribers! You can easily sign up right here.
