The SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset System has been revamped many times, but no update has been as groundbreaking as this new version, the Lightroom Preset System v6.
Our goal has always been to create the best preset system available, and the community has helped in making it even better. Like previous versions, these presets allow photographers to open up new creative possibilities, all while being efficient and saving time behind the computer!
- Improved Developing Workflow
- Improved Advanced Developing Workflow
- New Color & B&W Toning Sections
- Refined Presets
- Additional Effects
- Refined Naming
- Community Platform
The previous BASE developing workflow in v5 has changed to a new and improved workflow. By choosing a Foundation, Stylization and Base Tone preset or following the “FSB” framework, users can create virtually any look in 3 simple and intuitive clicks.
Utilizing Adjustments, Curves and Special FX or the advanced “ACS” framework, users can add additional color layering, special effects and adjustments to further customize and stylize their images.
In v6, we have added COLOR TONING and B&W TONING to the ADJUSTMENTS portion of the workflow. These presets give users the option to specifically control Color, HSL and B&W Toning to create more dramatic colors within your images.
We’ve tweaked and, in some instances, completely revamped the presets for better overall results and easier usability. Detail, sharpening, skin softening, film and lens effects; everything has been refined or revamped for better effect.
Along with the amazing retouching and Special FX brush presets, we have added the Sunflare brush preset allowing you to add or strengthen a sun flare within a single click.
We’ve listened to our community and tweaked the naming structure to be even more intuitive.
We’ve created a robust platform for you to share your “recipes” for achieving results. This will be a great resource for your ongoing education and inspiration. See our recipes section.

Presets that Stack
To help you gain back creative control in post processing, we designed the Lightroom Preset System with a “layered” or additive approach to developing. So, rather than clicking a single “one-click” preset that creates a very specific look, we have designed the presets to layer upon one another in the developing framework. With this additive approach to post-processing, you can create virtually any look with just a few clicks in a matter of seconds. Let’s go through one quick example:
Intro to FSB
Foundation (F) – When you import your images, you’ll first select a Foundation preset which automatically colorizes and gives your images a finished and refined look.
Stylization (S) – Then you might select a Stylization preset which allows you to apply a range of stylized looks to your image, from a punchy high definition look, to soft bright and airy images, to even vintage and filmic effects.
Base Tones (B) – Finally, your third click in this layered approach might be to refine your Base Tones depending on your style. You might prefer your portraits to have softer skin tones, while others prefer a higher contrast or more crushed black look. These is just one example examples but remember that the presets are designed to stack and layer so you have the freedom to go in any particular sequence.
In addition to this flexibility, this additive approach to developing gives you creative reign over your post processing style. Every step along this framework is designed to help you define and differentiate your images from the person next to you.
Further Customize with ACS
FSB already creates a finished image; but if desired, you can continue to modify further with Adjustments (A), Curves (C) and Special Effects (S). This is how the Lightroom Preset System gives back the creative control to you, the artist and photographer. Creative possibilities are now at your fingertips that were otherwise difficult to achieve, or just tediously time consuming. Your look, your style, with just a few clicks.
Simple, Intuitive and Consistent Results
We found that preset system users would quickly learn layer by layer how each group of adjustments would affect the overall image styling. So as YOU are using the presets, not only will it open up creative possibilities and speed up your workflow as we discussed before, it will aid you in better understanding the visual components that go into creating any particular look. With a little bit of time and practice, consistently achieving any look will become as simple as tying your shoe.
Retouching & Special Effects
On top of the nearly 300 develop presets that are in this workflow system, we have also designed a robust retouching and editing preset suite for your local adjustment brushes and filters. These brush and filter presets give you the ability to quickly retouch a portrait without ever opening up Photoshop. Sold by others, these retouching brush presets themselves can cost $100 or more. Also included are artistic stylization brushes which for example, can help you enhance the detail and color within the sky, or make a dress or other article of clothing pop, you can add lens blur to an image to create a tilt-shift look, or how about even creating realistic sun flares, all from within Lightroom.
Community and Resources
We have created a platform on SLR Lounge where you can submit your work and show off your own Mixology recipes with the entire SLR Lounge community. As others see your work and mixology recipe, they can vote on your recipe and the best recipes will get featured on SLR Lounge and users can even win prizes, in addition to just being an awesome resource to other photographers around the world. Now there is always a place to ask questions, show off your work, help others and help us to make sure that the Lightroom Preset System always remains the most powerful workflow preset system for photographers.
