Bright Portrait (Indoor) - Free Lightroom 3 Preset
This is one of the presets I use the most and probably my favourite. I call it Bright Portrait (Indoor) where the 'indoor' part means it's for portraits that are shot inside. I love the way this preset brightens skin tones and smooths them off, and the way it boosts the image colours.
Using the Preset
As with all of my presets, no exposure, recovery, fill light, blacks, white balance or tint changes are made to your image. Once you apply this preset, you should only need to adjust the Basic sliders (white balance, tint, exposure, recovery, fill light, blacks) in the Develop Module to tweak your image to perfection. The preset is quite a simple one and uses a custom tone curve, some camera calibration adjustments, and some colour saturation and vibrancy enhancements.
This preset is created in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 and is designed for RAW files. It will work with JPEG files just as well in the few tests that we have done, but we always recommend you shoot in RAW to get the best out of your photos.
