Playing with Adobe Lightroom

office view original

I took a photo looking out my office window today, the clouds looked mean and the photo is a little dark, but I thought it would be perfect to have a play around with in Adobe Lightroom.

I downloaded their 30 day trial to see what the program was like, and while I was waiting, found a whole bunch of presets for it as well. Instead of working for the last 3 hours, I installed Lightroom and all the presets, then proceeded to see what each one (of over 700) looked like on my photo.

Here's a small selection of the ones I saved - there were 40 of them that I liked, which I narrowed down to 16, and finally got it down to 7 that I want to share with you all.

Office View Fliter 3    Office View Fliter 4

Office View Fliter 5    Office View Fliter 6

And this is my favourite of the lot:

  • Not only gorgeous but peaceful too - and to think, we're far enough out of earthquake city, yet close enough.

  • I love lightroom and wonderful post! P.S. You found 700 presets? I only have 200 I think I need to go look some more! (I have some called "Matts Presets" and "Wow Presets" but that's about it.
    Again, GREAT post and photograph!

  • I got Lightroom about a month ago when Adobe was running a special on it (if purchased at the same time as Photoshop CS5 or any bundle containing PS). Haven't done much with it yet, though. Thanks for sharing.
