HOME STORIESB&W PRESETS FOR LIGHTROOM AND ACR
HomeStories B&W Presets
A collection of 17 Black & White presets and 35 tools to help speed up your Lightroom or ACR workflow. These are the same presets I use in my own workflow and have sped up my retouching process so much.
Each preset includes a regular version that’s a little matte, and a clean version.
This set is designed for images that were shot indoors but can be used on your outdoor images as well. If you shoot outside a lot, you will want to check out the outdoor B&W set that takes care of all your green levels and really makes images pop.
These presets will not affect your exposure, you will need to adjust manually if necessary. Tools allow you to add grain, contrast, and a matte finish to get the film look or keep them clean.
Works with ACR, Lightroom, and Lightroom CC. Some effects may not work in LR 4.
Due to the nature of digital downloads, all sales are final.

HOW TO USE HOME STORIES
Designed for images shot indoors, these presets will help you by quickly creating deep, moody, contrasty black and white images.
Your exposure won’t be affected, so after (or before) applying the preset, be sure to adjust the exposure slider to quickly get the look you want.
The included tools allow you to add grain, contrast, and a matte finish to get the film look or keep them clean for a crisp image.
