I started using Lightroom regularly a few months ago and even tho the program is straightforward, the amount of options to process your photos can be overwhelming.
I came across the ProLost presets which makes Lightroom work the way I want it to work.
The Basic Idea
Unlike other presets, these are arranged in gradations. As you move your mouse up and down, you’re previewing different amounts of each effect. Just click when the image feels right, and you’ve applied the adjustment.
All the Prolost Presets work together, so you can edit your entire image quickly and easily, without ever touching a single slider.
$19.99 but use the promocode “cmdtv” and get 20% off. (Expires 08/31/2013 works for anything in the ProLost Store)
