Including Lightroom presets in your photography workflow can make a drastic difference how much time you spend editing and your consistency. Which is exactly why I offer Lightroom Presets here on Filtercrave. But before using the presets, you need to know how to install them. This quick tutorial will walk you through the simple steps of installing presets in for Lightroom. In this post is a video tutorial and a written tutorial. The written tutorial explains two methods.
