When taking photos of everyday life, some of the best effects are the subtle, minimal ones. Pastel tones work really well with a lot of environments and lighting situations so we thought it’d be a good idea to make a free set of pastel Lightroom Presets!
With these free pastel Lightroom Presets you can edit lifestyle photos, portraits, landscape shots, and tons of different scenes. They work great for blog photos too!
Included in the download is a set of four pastel Lightroom Presets built in Lightroom CC 2015. These should work well in most versions of the software (Lightroom 4, Lightroom 5, Lightroom CC, etc.). The download also includes a helpful guide for installing and using the Lightroom Presets and getting the most out of them with your photos.
These are the Lightroom Presets included: Pastel Cool, Pastel Warm, Pastel Vintage, and Pastel Earth.
For best results, we recommend adjusting the Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, and Shadows to best fit your image. When balanced properly the effect should look slightly faded, but colors/highlights should still be maintained. Sometimes the presets tend to overexposure an image, so if they do just bump it down a bit for best results. Learn how to create a full pastel effect in Photoshop with our tutorial.
