What Changed Between Versions?

In the new Lightroom Presets, we’ve not only revamped all of our previous presets from v6 but also incorporated new filmic presets to help recreate the look of classic film images. We’ve also included 25 of our own Lin & Jirsa presets that we use for our signature color, black & white, filmic color, and black & white effects.

Simplified & Refined Framework
With this new update, we’ve moved away from our old framework of creating either “soft” or “vivid” images and have instead, implemented a new singular framework that is now even more powerful and easier to use. This new system is made to be more intuitive as it helps our users now to create their own custom mixologies in just a few clicks.

Advanced Customization System (ACS)

In v6, we introduced COLOR TONING and B&W TONING to the ADJUSTMENTS portion of the workflow. Now, as a part of our new Advanced Customization System, we’ve added more ways to customize color tonalities. In addition to refining all prior color toning presets, we’ve also incorporated filmic color toning and a revamped curve system. We’ve added two whole new curves to the updated curve system as a way to help our users create their perfect version of any preset.

Refined Brushes for Retouching & Advanced Effects

We’ve enhanced our previous retouching and brush presets to now include Detail Enhancers and new Special FX brushes that help with adding tilt shifts, split toning, and more.
