Night Photography Lightroom and ACR Presets

free lightroom night photography presets

Do your night images lack that 'pop' that really makes them stand out from the crowd? Processing night images can be complex, and since this type of photography is fairly new, there isn't much information out there on how to do it properly.

I've spent countless hours developing these presets based on my experiences editing night photographs.

Watch the video to see how these work!

My presets for Adobe Lightroom are “donationware”. I develop, release, and maintain them for free, and you can use them for free forever, but I hope you find them worthy of a gift of thanks or encouragement.
