    This system makes lightroom almost the only editing software I need. What used to take me hours doing either in lightroom with an endless number of sliders, or in Photoshop with endless layers, now only takes a few clicks. There are actually pictures that I initially thought of as boring or throw-aways, that I see in an entirely different light with this system.

    Not only the presets themselves are amazing, but the video tutorials that come with the system are invaluable to learning lightroom and photography as a whole.

    The only downside is I feel like I have wasted my money on other LR presets and PS actions.

    As a last thought, the customer service that Slr Lounge gives is beyond compare.

    The installation process is crazy. You have to email proof of purchase before getting the download link. Took a week to get it then another day to get the download link. You'd think this was top secret software!

      Comments about SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset System & Workshop V5:

      I use this to complement LR5 presets. Works like charm - as if it is part of of Lightroom v5 (which in essence, it is). Since I bought this along with LR about a month ago, my experience is limited. Having said that I have tried all of the presets on several photos and am very pleased with the results.

        Everyone should own this just for the shear fact of how much work went into this and how much time and effort it can save any photographer. I can't even count the number of preset it gives you. I'd have to saw 100's

            I cannot imagine myself using lightroom, without this preset system installed. It really saves me time and give consistency to my work. Now I don't spend my time tweaking sliders and trying to find the best adjustments to my work.
            I simply rely on the SLR Lounge presets system to do the magic for me.
            Only a few clicks, and you'll have a real change in many features of you photo.
            I totally recommend this to all serious photographers, who are not allowed to spend days retouching and developing their photos. Our clients don't like to wait, so get yourself your copy of this product right now! Amazing results are there for you.

              SLR's LR preset system not only saves you a lot of time pushing sliders in LR, but with only a couple of clicks you the opportunity to quickly experiment with new looks. With the help of the preset system I do most of my editing in LR now instead of PS. This product has allowed me to be much more efficient in my editing workflow while still making my images look their best. Thanks SLR Lounge-I love your products!

                  I bought the SLR Lounge preset system a year ago for my business and it completely changed my life.
                  Now editing hundreds of images takes minutes, not hours and the final product is absolutely excellent.
                  This preset system allows me to save a lot of time in the post processing stage so that I can deliver the images to my clients earlier.
                  I recommend this preset system to all photographers, both professionals and amateurs.

                    The guys at SLR Lounge did a great job in creating a real preset system. In just a few clicks your rawfiles change in the pictures you imagined! The preset system is set up as a framework: in V5 'BCAS' (which stands for Base, Curves, Adjust and SFX). Just pick the right preset from each category and you're done, in 1-4 clicks. Easy as that! It doesn't matter what kind of photography you are into. The presets stack, so you create your own look. The presets are well defined and well named, so it is exactly clear what you're doing, and the results are easily repeated. But there's more: the preset system comes with dozens of (again well named and very usable) adjustment brushes, so you can even finetune your images if necessary.

                    So I ended up with – apart from the standard LR-presets – only the SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset System installed in my Lightroom. It's really all I need for my raw-processing, and worth every penny I paid for it. You should really try it!

                        SLR Lounge Lightroom Preset Review
                        By admin | Published

                        07

                        | Edit

                        Over the years, many people have asked me about my workflow for my images. I generally tell them about Lightroom and Photoshop, leveraging those tools to get the best images possible. I also tell them that with Lightroom, finding a "recipe" or a preset that work for their style will greatly improve their overall workflow and speed up their finishing process.

                        I own a few presets packages for Lightroom, with one of them standing out above all the rest: the SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets. Without question, these presets are the best that I have found and always provide me with the results that I envisioned when I originally pressed the shutter button on my camera. Their presets have saved me countless hours of finishing work (moving from hours to minutes) and saved me from having to spend a lot of time in Photoshop (something I don't like to do). The lessons that come with the system not only taught me how to use their presets but gave me confidence to use Lightroom as my primary edit tool.

                        I have been using SLR Lounge presets for about 2 years now, and will continue to use them as long as I take photographs.

                        Below is a before/after example of a photograph I recently took using the HDR SLR Lounge Presets for Lightroom.

                        Good job guys!

                        Blessings,

                        Chris

                          I highly recommend these presets to any Lightoom user. These presets appeal to me mostly on the level of functionality (they are grouped into sets, i.e. there are several tone curves – cool, neutral, warm, each with subcategories – labeled as washes , punches, and vintage inspired punches). Everything is easy to find and understand.

                            When I first started using lightroom, I was merely using it as a raw converter. I didn't do much other than adjusting exposure, contrast, saturation, WB and sharpening. There were so many other sliders/options in lightroom that I have no idea how to take advantage of them.This is until I discovered Lightroom Presets by SLR Lounge, when the true power of lightroom was unleashed. It is an incredible preset system where you can easily and tastefully get get rid of that generic look of your photos, and eventually develop you own signature style/tone. Lightroom Presets is designed as a workflow, where you can easily fine tune/customize your own style/look by stacking the presets. I couldn't be happier with this simple and effective preset system.

                                I love the preset system! I purchased it about one year ago after coveting it for some time. I wish I had taken the plunge sooner! The preset system has helped me realize more of Lighroom's potential, and how much I was under utilizing it before. It has saved so much time in my work flow and given me more confidence in my editing. The presets themselves are organized and named very intuitively, which I really appreciated having used some free presets in the past with names like "rainbow" or "money". It comes with brush presets for doing things I had never dreamed Lightroom was capable of - enhancing eyes, skin, hair, lips, sky, etc. It also comes with export presets and tutorials to give you examples of how to put it all together. I don't know how I lived without it!

                                SLR's LR preset system not only saves you a lot of time pushing sliders in LR, but with only a couple of clicks you the opportunity to quickly experiment with new looks. With the help of the preset system I do most of my editing in LR now instead of PS. This product has allowed me to be much more efficient in my editing workflow.

                                  SLR Lounge Lightroom Presets V5.1 is the preset that I used to edit my images for a year now. I guess it's safe to say that SLR Lounge Lightroom presets are the best there is because first of all it's complete (you won't be needing any other presets out there) from soft to vivid presets, curves, exposures, contrast, saturation, noise reduction, vignetting, etc. with a total of 311 presets. Second, the Lightroom preset V5 also includes workshop that can be purchase in this link for a very reasonable prize of $[$]. What I like the most with this preset is that it can be use with all types of photography from Landscapes, Wedding, Portrait, Fashion and Commercial, Street and Travel. The preset will surely help you in making your images better, your work easier and will surely save you time. I am not that good when it comes to editing but because of this easy to use presets my images are so much better than before. I recommend this to all photographers, whatever your forte this will surely give a big impact on your photos.

                                  As we all know, post-processing is an important part of digital photography. But it is a time-consuming process as well. To make more time to spend shooting pictures, I felt the need of using a preset system to speed up my post-processing work flow. With my search, I came across the SRL Lounge Preset System V5. Investing in this preset system allowed me to significantly cut down my process-processing time and improved the efficiency of my work flow. The SRL Lounge Preset System present system is not like other isolated presets that you can get elsewhere. It is a complete present system that walks you through from scratch to finished version of a photograph with just few clicks. It has options available that you can apply to any kind of photography. You just start with importing photo with a base foundation develop settings that take a photo very near to the final version with a single click. Then you apply your desired curves with a single click. If needed, you then adjust base tone, exposure, contrast, saturation, shadows/blacks or noise level picking each with a mouse click as well. Finally, you apply the color schemes, if desired. So with just 3 to 6 clicks, you can finish prost post-processing tasks in just few seconds. The present system comes with options to process pictures in both color and B&W. In addition to offering a very structured post-processing work flow, the SRL Lounge Preset System also comes with more than 40 adjustment brushes that I consider a life-saver. For portrait retouching to details enhancement, you have a wide range of options to choose from. This is where I save most of my time. Instead to doing trial and error with many sliders, I can now just pick a brush and start painting with my mouse. One last thing I must mention is the noise reduction presets available as part of the Adjustment steps. It offers a very efficient process to reduce noise from pictures taken with high ISO. I was amazed with several of my pictures where I was able to produce impressive images from shots taken with ISO 1600.If you care about reducing your post-processing time and making impressive pictures with just few clicks, the SRL Lounge Preset System is worth a look.
