CoffeeShop B&W CoffeeBar ACR and LR2 Presets. And they work in PSE!

So I did it (hopefully)! My first official set of presets that work in LR1 and LR2 and Photoshop ACR, CoffeeShop B&W CoffeeBar. And PSE users, I did not forget about you! I found a way for you to use these presets in your PSE6 or PSE7 ACR "lite" program with a nifty workaround. Yes, you too can use CoffeeShop presets and I will show you how. This actually "unlocks" parts of your ACR that you can't use in PSE.

CoffeeShop B&W CoffeeBar is a set of 3 B&W presets , a classic, vanilla and mocha B&W. These are all higher contrast B&W's and I will be coming out with a high key set later. Remember, once you run these presets on your image, you can tweak them to taste. For complete instructions on how to load these presets into your PC, please check out this link. And if you have any questions please post them at the CoffeeShop Flickr Group.

Here is a sample of the Mocha Latte B&W.

If you have Photoshop ACR or LR, please download the presets HERE or HERE. This set will not work in PSE.



If you have PSE 6 or 7, please download the image "presets" HERE or HERE (file size corrected, now this is a small 2 mg file).

  8. I used Carbaugh's instructions in PSE7 & then I got it to work - it wasn't working before by canceling the .dng, I think you have to click done and then when you open your picture do previous conversion, like she said. That's how I got it to work. Thanks for making these! I'm off to post them on my blog!

  9. Thanks everyone! OK, I modified my loading instructions for PSE so hopefully one version will work with each PSE. Just like using actions in PSE, presets are going to be a trial and error type of thing. I really appreciate the suggestions as I can't test these on programs I don't have! Please keep them coming. :-)

  10. Rita these are fabulous as I knew they would be! I tried them on about 5 SOOC RAW images and they worked with no adjustment needed. Like no other RAW presets I have found so far. With your LR tutorials and presets available I am now a LR convert after months of getting frustrated with it. Thanks a million!

  14. Rita,

    Thank you for sharing! I am so excited to see that they will work in Elements 7. I was trying to figure out how to justify getting Lightroom. Once again, thank you for sharing your creative abilities with us.

  15. Thanks a bunch! Now, what I wouldn't give for a LR2 preset with the same effect as your Little Perk (my most fave action EVER)... Hint, hint...

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm in super mega love w/ these for LR2...wow! LR2 has sped up my workflow by leaps and bounds then your conversions literally made it even fast. A bit of brightening, your preset, a quick sharpen and BOOM...done!
    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  19. I am new to PSE7, if anyone could post a step-by-step to get these presets to work, I would appreciate it greatly! I already tried the steps above, and could not find "settings" and figure it out. :/

    TIA!

    Beautiful conversions!!!

  30. Just tried downloading these but I can't use them in PSE 9 I guess? :( Is there anyway that I can convert them or something????? I was so excited to see this action, I love all your other ones and use some of them all the time!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I don't have LR3 yet, so I can't update them. Do LR2 presets not work in LR3? So much to learn!
