as this video relates to that one so if you haven’t seen that, check that out. I
will link to that in the cards on the top right hand corner of the video here
today. So let’s get started on how to create a preset in Lightroom and apply
it to your photos when importing them. So here we are in Lightroom. This…make sure
you in the Develop Module, we’re going to start the develop module for this
tutorial. You will need to have some photos already imported into Lightroom
so if you don’t have any yet, please take a look at my how to import photos into
Lightroom CC tutorial which I’ve just linked up in the top right hand corner
of the screen right now. So take a look at that and then come back. If you’ve
already got some photos imported let’s get started. Now in my how to import
photos into Lightroom CC tutorial I said that I just do lens Corrections on
important. So this is the section here that I do. I saved a preset, a develop
preset with just this lens Corrections one here, but for this photo here today
we’ll do a little bit more than that because I’ve already saved my lens
Corrections one and I don’t really want to muck it
up. So we’ll do a little bit of a basic adjustment here. Let’s say we’ll come…
actually, we’ll come down here to camera calibration. Lately I like to set the
profile here to either camera neutral, or camera standard. Standard is kind of nice, it just depends on the look of the photograph, sometimes
it works with standard, sometimes neutral, sometimes Adobe standard is fine. But for
today let’s set it for camera standard. And we won’t play with any of those other
sliders, we’ll just do that. We’ll make sure the lens Corrections are done there,
that’s fine. This will come up automatically, if you just select your…you can see you’ve got heaps of cameras here to choose from; GoPros, Apple phones,
you know…Samsung’s, whatever you’ve got there. And then you just select the model
of your lens. There’s all the Nikon lenses in there…so many?! And then this
will come up automatically down here this profile, Adobe profile for your lens
will pop up. And you can adjust the distortion, the amount of lens distortion
here, if you want. You can see it goes in and out there a little bit. All lenses
distort things just by the nature of the curvature of the glass in the
lenses. And then vignetting, you can control here as well, see it’s kind of…it
is vignetting quite a lot there actually. But anyway, I leave those to the
default normally. I leave em at a hundred. So let’s do that. So let’s say
that that’s all we want to do on…when we import our photos, we just want to apply
those settings and those settings only, which is a good place to start because a
lot of…most images are different, unless you’ve taken them all on the same day
and they’re all of the same thing. They’re going to look different. They’re
going to have you know darker shadows or more blown…more brighter highlights
or you know just different colors and everything so just a basic development
setting like this is really good to do now what we need to do now is come over
here to our presets on the left hand side now you can see I’ve got my user
presets there I’ve already got some there this lens correction is one here
is what I apply on import so what we need to do is click on this +, create
new preset we will call this one just for today say basic….. develop…basic develop will do. We’re going
to save it in the user presets folder you can choose to make a new folder and
call it whatever you like there. Now you have to select what you want here so
because we’re not doing white balance or anything else we’re just going to check
none and we’re just going to select the process version here, lens Corrections
there, and the calibration…we’ll do that too. And that will and then we click
create and that creates our preset now if we come across to our import window
by clicking on file down to import photos and video. Now you can come over
here to apply during import and you can click down your drop down thing there
down to your user presets and you will see that basic develop is now in there and
we can select that and apply that on import. So there you go, that’s how to
create a preset in Lightroom and apply it to your photos when importing them. I
