Creative BW Lightroom Presets HelpI will give you brief instructions how to install and use Creative BW Lightroom Presets. It should be an easy and fun process even if you never used presets before. Anyway, if you have just any problem or you need some additional help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
How to install Creative BW presetsYou need to copy Creative_BW folder and to paste it into Lightroom > Develop Presets folder on your computer.
You can easily find Develop Presets folder by opening Preferences > Presets from Edit menu. Click on Show Lightroom Presets Folder button.
In the window that opens go and click on Lightroom folder and you will see Develop Presets folder. Double click on the Develop Presets folder to open it and paste Creative_BW folder previously copied to the clipboard of your computer.
Restart Lightroom and Creative_BW presets will appear in Develop module on the left side under Presets just below Navigator.
How to use Creative BW presetsYou must select the photo and to expand Creative_BW folder. Click on preset name and it will be applied to currently selected photo.
I will suggest you to adjust your image before applying any of the presets. By adjusting I mean to set Color Balance, Exposure, Shadows, Highlights and so on... in the Basic tab. You can do and other adjustments because the only thing that will change presets from this collection is to convert the image to Black and White and to change settings in the Tone Curve tab. Some of the presets (Aged, and Aged 2) will also change settings in the Effects tab: Post Crop Vignetting and Grain. If you want to apply some other preset instead of current then simply click on preset name.
Note: after using Aged or Aged 2 presets you will need to manually remove Vignette and Grain in the Effects tab, in case you do not want to use these effects with other presets. To reset vignette and grain, simply double click on the Amount letters in the Effects tab.
