One Lightroom 4 Tutorial, Four Different Vintage Effects!

By Pye Jirsa on June 18th 2012

In this Lightroom 4 Tutorial Episode

In this episode we will be using the Lightroom 4 Preset System to show you four different vintage effects and looks on this image submitted by Leesa Jefferies of Photography by Lesa. For those that don’t have the LR4 Preset System, don’t worry, we will still show the settings on how we create these effects.

Lesa is a LR4 Preset System user, and she wants to know how we would go about creating nice warm vintage looks for her image. We love user submitted images, so if you have an image you want us to do a tutorial on, feel free to submit it! If we choose to use your image, we will provide photo credit on SLR Lounge! Great job on this shot Lesa, hope you all enjoy the tutorial!

    I was watching this video, and when adjusting the tone curving… under my point curve I only have the linear and contrast options.. not the color. Do you know why this is?
