The Best Lightroom Presets for Summer 2020

Lightroom Presets have become a popular way of quickly editing pictures on the go. It’s no wonder that Lightroom presets are the number one way of creating a consistent theme on Instagram and co. Especially vacation pics are great material for editing, so here’s my favorite presets for summer.

Steven Wommack – Women’s 4 Presets 2019

Wommack has some great presets in store for anyone who loves warm tones and wants a consistent Instagram theme. The Women’s 4 Presets offer a nice variety for people who post a lot of fashion and style pics.

He also posted a very elaborate tutorial on Josefine HJ’s style of editing (not her preset but he edited a picture in a style similar to hers). I think especially when you get started on photo editing it can be very useful to try to copy someone else’s style to gain some knowledge on editing.

Alohaa Jana – Holiday Bundle

This one works well with beach and vacation photos as it doesn’t wash out blue colors and keeps the images saturated. Jana makes a variety of presets that mostly go well with the whole travel blogger vibe, so it’s definitely worth checking out her other presets as well.

My Own Preset

I finally got to make my own preset for Lightroom because I felt like making my own would be the most effective way of really staying consistent. It takes a while to really tailor it to your needs but I think it pays off. After all I love to share all my Instagram and photo editing knowledge with the world and even wrote a blog post about how I did it.
My preset can be found here.

As you can see, it cancels out all unwanted yellow and green tones while highlighting tan skin and aquatics. I even wrote a blog post about how to fake a tan in Lightroom. You can read all about it here.

These were my favorite presets at the moment – have fun editing!
