Combining Looks, Vignettes and Split Tones

You will see that your presets include 12 ‘looks’, two vignettes and two split tones.
This means huge creative potential.

I recommend this simple approach to using vignettes and split tones…

1. Choose the preset you feel best fits your vision for your image
    - try clicking on different presets (01 to 12) before choosing

2. Try out a Vignette (presets 13 & 14) – try clicking on each before making your choice

3. Try out a Split Tone (presets 15 & 16) – again, click on each then make your choice

Please Note:  If you apply a vignette and (or) a split tone and then decide that you want to change the underlying ‘look’, then I recommend that you select ‘RESET ALL PRESETS’ and start again.  Its easy, fast, and healthy for your images J

 

Using ‘RESET ALL PRESETS’

By clicking on ‘RESET ALL PRESETS’ your Lightroom preview will return to the status of the unedited colour raw file.
