So I caught a virus and it was bad enough to need to reformat. I had this killer pre-set pack that I got from OTAP 1-2 years ago. Did a search, found the link, but it was dead. Anyone have that preset pack, or recommend any other free ones? Thanks!

Was it the TotallyRad pack in the original lightroom sticky thread? I remember when I first got Lightroom, I found a HUGE pack on Piratebay. After installing all 11ty thousand of them, I went through and got rid of all of the ones I deemed were retarded.

It's not really :bowdown: imo :o

Most of them are shit. Even the totally rad stuff.. the problem with presets is that they only work for some images. Others will just look totally wrong and may not match your shooting style at all.

So by the time you've got your unprocessed image, then tried a bunch of presets to see which work, you might as well have just done it yourself. Plus you learn more by processing your own images.

The only ones I really use are the split tone presets and vignettes, and that's pretty rare

True, but its kind of cool just to see what is changed in each preset to create the effect. Easier than messing with all the controls yourself since you can simply mouse over the preset to see a preview of it.
