In this Lightroom presets pack, you will get three beautiful looks to make your photos look vintage. They work with photos from morning to broad daylight in the afternoon to sunset time when things are a bit darker.

They’re especially awesome if you’re looking for pink Lightroom presets as they all have a bit of a feminine touch to them.

This preset is my go-to preset as its good for soft lighting and/or most times of the day.

Preset 2 – @sarchetrit Golden Daylight

This preset is best for photos taken in broad daylight when the sun is really harsh. It balances the contrast of sun and shadows and also adds a nice pinkish tone.

Preset 3 – @sarchetrit Soft Sunsets

This preset is great for late afternoon to sunset times as it makes the lighting quite soft.

Preset 4 – @sarchetrit Basic

This preset is a super basic one with all the adjustments that I generally leans towards. This one is just a back-up in case the other ones are too much for the photo you are trying to edit, or you are more of an advanced editor and want to start from the basics to build up to your own.


Best Tips for Using These Vintage Lightroom Presets

Presets look different on everyone’s photos. They depend on the time of day that you took a photo, the location, settings on your camera and your camera itself.

Nonetheless, with these few tips and tricks, you can make these vintage Lightroom presets work for you!

Here are my best tips for using this free Lightroom presets pack:

  • Shoot photos in RAW. You can change a lot of the image afterwards in Lightroom.
  • If you’re shooting broad daylight, make sure your settings make your photos darker than lighter. Dark areas can be lifted up (when you up the shadows and blacks) but lighter areas can be recovered if it’s totally blown out.
  • When using the presets, hover over each preset to see which one looks best on your photo. Click on the one you want, and adjust the Temperature & Exposure first! Then make tweaks if you need to other settings.
