Cocoa Bean RAW Lightroom Preset {freebie}

January 19, 2010

Lightroom Only! {see disclaimer below tho for you ACR users!)
Cocoa Bean B&W Raw Preset Freebie! I love sharing! And I love black and whites. Plain B&W or tinted…love it all. Here is a chocolate tinted one. Actually two. One is for images that are bright sooc (the one called Light) and one is for images that are darker sooc (called Dark). Why two? Speed. No other reason really.  I try one and if it’s too dark right off the bat, I reset then start over and apply the other one. BUT you will STILL need to tweak these to your taste. Apply the one that looks most promising right off. Then tinker with Exposure sliders, the Tone Curve sliders…make it work for you!
If you liked this preset and use this preset, drop me a comment or even link me to your plays! Your appreciation means I will keep offering freebies. Next week, I will be offering a Portrait Color Pop preset for Lightroom AND ACR! So be sure to come back! And a week or so after that I plan to offer a fun vintage action with oodles of tints and hazes that come with it. Stay tuned and come back, y’all!
**Disclaimer: If I can get at least 7 posters requesting this Cocoa B&W preset for ACR, I will happily convert these to ACR Presets and share them with you. 7 people need to comment here first though. I need to know if people are interested in them before I take the time to offer them sometimes. <3
Show time!
I reloaded these this morning (Wednesday 7:50am) as a zip file. They will work now. Yay!
