I’ve given away plenty of free Photoshop Actions here on Spoon Graphics, but so far I haven’t shown as much love to Lightroom. Adobe Lightroom is becoming increasingly popular as the go-to photo processing tool. Just like with Photoshop Actions, you can save a series of adjustments as a preset, which can be used to instantly apply cool effects to your images with just a single click. Download this free collection of 12 Cinematic Lightroom Presets to transform your photographs with various contrast and colour alterations. They’re all based on the colour grading aesthetics of popular movie genres, such as Horror, Western, Action, Romantic and more. The visual styles of these films are usually seen on the big screen, but we can replicate similar looks within still images with the help of these preset image adjustments.
