Just curious is anyone has used these presets and if some what you thought of them. I won't lie my editing talents are lacking and given I'm shooting weddings this year I figured I'd use these to help bridge the gap.

I haven't used them and they look interesting. I downloaded some of the free presets out there and then I made my own! Same with my adjustment brushes. One great thing to do is take a black and white preset that comes with lightroom and then look at what it does on the right side, exposure, saturation, and all the way down and just from that and looking at other presets you can get clues as to how to put together your own.

I love Lightroom. It's so user friendly and practical for photographers.

I so all my b&w conversions in CS I just prefer that method over anything I've used or seen in Lightroom but I haven't tried them all. You are correct LR is very user friendly but I've been to lazy to really mess with it that much. Part of that is I got stuck doing just one style for so long that I stopped playing and learning. Now that I shoot weddings I just don't want to waste hours developing new methods, yes I'm lazy lol. If I go with them I'll post up in here how they do with sample images.

I understand. It's just that it doesn't take long to make a preset in lightroom and since you have it, its really great to fully understand its utilities. But maybe the presets will make processing more effective for you.

I like Photoshop for doing things like levitation, where you layer two exposures of the same scene, only the subject isn't in one and you brush away the supports. That's awesome. It takes ages to do it well. I'll actually finish the image with cloning and healing in Lightroom.
