The FX Collection Presets
271 Premium Lightroom & ACR Presets
If you're looking for a particular look or effect to create your own signature style, this collection is the one to get!
From duotones to light leaks and split tones, the 271 presets in the FX Collection will help you achieve that special style you’re after – faster!
Whether you want to simulate out-of-this-world infrared effects or dramatically increase the dynamic range in your images with HDR presets, we got you covered. We’ve also included the very popular Desaturated Cinematic pack as well as solar spot and lomography presets in this collection, making it the perfect choice for finding your own signature style.
With this collection, you get instant access to $194 worth of presets for one low price. That’s over 74% off and you get all future updates free, for life.
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!
Included in the download zip are 2 folders: one contains the good old .lrtemplate files and the other contains the newer .xmp version of the same files.
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!
