The Adobe Lightroom application (versions 4, 5, 6, CC, or Classic CC) is required to use the Contrastly presets. All the presets are also compatible with the latest version of Adobe Camera Raw (10.3). All the included presets work great with RAW and JPG photos.
Note about Lightroom and ACR with Adobe’s recent update (April 2018) of Lightroom CC, Classic CC, and Adobe Camera Raw (10.3+), you can now use our presets within ACR. This means you can use all of our presets in Photoshop too now!
If you use Lightroom 4, 5, 6, or CC 2015, the .lrtemplate files will work just fine. If you’re all up to date with the latest version of Lightroom CC or Classic CC (and maybe you want to use the presets in ACR as well), the .xmp files are the ones you’ll want to use!

How do you add detail, sharpness, and clarity to your photos, you ask? The answer is simple, with one of the 34 presets included in this pack. Those presets will add dramatic sharpening and clarity to your images – all in a single click!
Images sometimes don’t come out as we’d expect. After all, the human eye can see so much more detail than a camera sensor. What about contrast and vibrance? Well, we have 72 presets to include in your workflow that will help with that.
Sometimes a photo has just too much contrast and saturation. Why not add a little bit of haze to create a subtle faded look? These presets work especially well with landscapes, street, and any photo that has great natural lighting.
If you’re looking to add soft color or matte finish effects to your photos, look no further! This set of 35 presets is just what the doctor ordered. Take the guesswork out of achieving this gorgeous and stylish effect with those presets.
Those presets are simple and to the point. Aqua, blue, orange, violet, yellow? We got you covered! Whether you need to add a general color cast to an image that was shot with improper lighting, or you want to create a cool effect, those presets are here to help.
Noise. It’s not always a bad thing, but how do you handle or adjust noise in a photo? Those presets can have a very subtle impact on noise in your images, of course the more noise your image contains already, the more apparent the effect will be!
Exposure is a big deal in photography. Get it even just slightly off and your photo won’t come out as you’d expect. The 47 presets included in this pack sure can help though! From adjusting the actual exposure, to recovering highlights and shadows, this pack of presets does it all.
Landscape images often lack in contrast and vibrance – this is where these presets will come in handy. If you want the skies to pop in your landscape shots, or give the foreground the attention it deserves, give those presets a try, you will not be disappointed.
Saturation is one of those things that is often confused with clarity or contrast, but it’s a thing all on its own. The presets included in this pack will increase the saturation in your images and make them pop and stand out!
Whether you want to improve family photos or you’re a pro photographer and need to retouch fashion shots, the presets in this pack will sure help you get the job done, faster! If you shoot portraits, you'll want to check out this pack!
