FREE TRAVEL LIGHTROOM PRESETS
WHAT IS A LIGHTROOM PRESET?
Lightroom presets consist of saved edits with all the photo settings in Adobe Lightroom. They allow you to edit your photos quickly with the selected preset and maybe a few minor adjustments! Consider them like filters you have on your phone.
So say you want to edit a photo you can alter the brightness, shadows, contrast, temperature, and colors to your preference.
For these free Lightroom travel presets you must have the application on your mobile phone or computer.
WHY ARE YOUR TRAVEL PRESETS FREE?
Editing your photos can be a little tricky and very time-consuming. I want others to quickly capture a moment with a few tweaks and beautiful edits with these free presets for Lightroom.
A FEW DEETS ON ADOBE LIGHTROOM INFORMATION
Lightroom On Mobile
Guess what? The Adobe Lightroom mobile application is 100% free. However, it is limited and not as advanced as the computer version for more detailed tweaks for editing. Boo, right?
If you are not using one of those fancy cameras, I suggest taking your pictures from the Lightroom Mobile application. Through the application, you are able to take RAW images that you would get from a digital camera.
RAW images produce a higher quality photo with a higher color range and depth compared to JPEG. However, RAW files are not compressed and take up more space.
You can do this by opening up your Lightroom mobile application and selecting the camera icon located in the lower right corner of the screen.
Now next to the button, you would use to take a picture should be a drop-down menu. Select ‘High Dynamic Range’ and DNG would appear at the top of the application Tada now you can take pictures in RAW format.
Lightroom On Computer
For Adobe Lightroom on your computer, there is a monthly subscription you have to pay, which is around $10 per month. In my opinion, it is worth every penny. The computer version also comes in a bundle with other applications included such as Photoshop and more if you want to expand your editing skills. I have to say this is an awesome bargain!

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH YOUR FREE TRAVEL LIGHTROOM PRESETS
Below I have some edits done with the free preset pack you’re getting. Keep scrolling and you can check out my before and after shots with my Brighten My World presets.
PRESET 1 | WIEN WE MEET AGAIN
A preset that has lower exposure and is perfect for pictures taken during the day with harsh light. This happens frequently while living here in Miami.
PRESET 2 | COM-MUNICH-CATE
Bright, soft, and airy preset. Perfect for the beach or a European vacation like me below spending a winter vacation in Munich.
PRESET 3 | DUBAI YOU A DRINK
Dubai you a drink is preset that is great to instantly brighten underexposed pictures, like the before picture I took in Miami Beach.
HOW TO ADD FINISHING TOUCHES TO YOUR TRAVEL LIGHTROOM PRESETS
Temperature: If the photos is too warm or cold, adjust the slider to your preference. I prefer a little cooler pictures, with just a smidge of warmness.
Colors: If the colors appear to be vibrant or muted adjust the saturation and vibrance until the colors appease you!
Too bright or dark: Try adjusting the contrast, highlights, shadows, blacks, and whites by a tad. If it is still not to your liking then play around with the exposure last. To keep all your photos consistent, you just need to adjust the sliders a little bit.
Skin Tone: If the skin tone seems unbalanced play with the oranges and reds in the HSL tab.
