CoffeeShop Beauty Lightroom Preset!

I love editing with Lightroom and 99% of the time I use the presets from Pretty Presets.  But I was playing around with this gorgeous image from Royal Harrison Photography and ended up liking this edit and decided to save it as a preset and share it with you.  This preset works in LR4 and up.

Depending on your image, you might need to adjust the exposure and tint (dial down the yellow on top) after running the preset.

Here is a before and after posted on my Facebook page by Say Cheese for Brandy.  This preset can really make a difference on portraits.

Download the CoffeeShop Beauty LR Preset.  You can also download it here.

Do you want to download my favorite CoffeeShop PSE/Photoshop Actions and Lightroom Presets or Design Elements in one convenient zipped file AND help support this blog? Just click here for my action pack or here for a download of some of my most popular design elements, storyboards, and textures.

  1. Will you make a photoshop action of this?

  2. Thank you for all of your time and your freebies. I love them all. I have used quite a bit of your actions in my PSE 7. Do you think this one will be available in the future?

  3. I get a text document when I try to download this preset at either of the choices for downloading.

  4. I haven't planned on making an action version, but I might see what I can do!

    And Lois, that is the preset, just download it and load it in LR. :-)

  5. When I said I only get a text document when I download the file that is all I got. Now when I download the link I get a zip file with the preset enclosed. In other words it is now has a .lrtemplate and not a .txt document.

    All is well that ends well!

  6. I LOVE this preset! Just used it on a pic of an ocean sunset and it is Pitch Perfect. Thanks so much!

  7. Thanks everyone! And JD, I would love to see your after, you should post it on my Facebook page.

  8. Hello! I just discovered your site and presets and I love them! What a time saver! Thank you! I have a question about the Beauty LR preset. When I try to run the action, it makes my images very dark and contrast-y. I have to make drastic adjustments to make it work. Am I doing something wrong?
