The focus of the ARTT 5 Minute Editing System
This collection of free presets will allow you to see how easy and fun editing your cherished work can be. While we have a number of collections we are sending your starter presets in each of the following. We feel these will give a wide range of the most used preset groups:
This will give you 4 free presets to try as well as introducing you to the 5ME Tool Kit which is the first piece of the puzzle in conquering Lightroom Editing. The toolkit gives you 39 Stackable Layers. When editing in Lightroom if you make changes and are not happy and hit “Reset” it takes you back to ‘square one’. With our stackable workflow layers you can hit, for example, Exposure +1, if it is not enough, hit “Ctl-Z” on your keyboard to undo only the last layer and you then can choose Exposure ++ or Exposure +++ to get the desired look.
These Base 39 Presets let you control all of the basic editing functions while still allowing you to do final tweaks in the basic sliders. Our full series also offers you over 150 stackable layers including Details, Temp-Sat, Color, Tones, and Vignettes. Also a bonus 39 stackable layers in each 5 Minute Editing System Packages and 132 Lightroom Brushes.
Our Complete Series of Preset Collections are located in the STORE under ALL PRESETS.
