The FilterGrade Story

FilterGrade Photoshop Actions and Lightroom Presets

A few years ago, I was faced with the problem of finding the right photo filters for my photography projects. I wanted versatile effects. Filters that weren’t too harsh and could be used easily. Sounds simple enough, right?

Well, it wasn’t! I tirelessly searched the web for the perfect effects and just couldn’t find them. Some effects looked amazing, but were really hard to use. Others were seamless in Photoshop and Lightroom, but just didn’t fit my style.

After trying to make it work for a while, I decided to make my own, and thus FilterGrade came to be.

Simply put, we make easy to use Photoshop Actions and Lightroom Presets for photographers, designers, artists, bloggers, and everyone in between. We’ve since expanded to offer custom made presets and filters from your favorite photographers, graphic designers, and bloggers!
