The Essential Collection: 20 Lightroom Presets for Landscape Photography

If you're looking for the most universal Lightroom presets for your landscape and nature photography, look no further.

Less is sometimes more: With this collection of presets, you'll be well equipped for the vast majority of landscape photography situations you will encounter.

Based on my popular Lightroom workflows and over 10 years of Lightroom experience, I've created this exciting product for landscape and travel photographers - professionals and amateurs alike.

20 Lightroom Presets / 6 Categories

✅ And because of the manageable number of presets, it's particularly well-suited for Lightroom Mobile (DNG presets are also included).

Choose from 20 professional Lightroom presets for landscape photography, which are divided into six categories. Even though the names of the presets indicate the subject, it's worth taking an experimental approach: Often, presets from another category also lead to great results with just a few clicks, since color palettes in nature repeat themselves in many places.

1. Moody (5 presets: M1-M5)
2. Classic (4 presets: C1-C4)
3. Forest (3 presets: F1-F3)
4. Winter (3 presets: W1-W3)
5. Sunrise and Sunset (2 presets: S1 and S2)
6. Black & White (3 presets: BW1-BW3)

= 20 highly universal presets for landscape photography!

Please note: Color Grading (or Split Toning in older Lightroom versions) is an integral part of most presets and my personal editing technique in Lightroom.

As a first step before applying a preset, the White Balance and Exposure should be checked in Lightroom and adjusted manually if necessary.

As always, I tested all presets on hundreds of photos from different camera manufacturers including Nikon, Canon, Sony, Fuji, Panasonic and more as well as drones like the DJI Mavic 1/2 or Phantom series. → Read all 63 customer reviews

Developed for Desktop & Mobile

All presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC, and Classic CC (.lrtemplate & XMP-files included) as well as the latest Lightroom Mobile app on iOS and Android. For Lightroom Mobile, you can choose either the synchronization method via Lightroom on your desktop computer or the installation method via DNG presets.

Also works with the latest version of Photoshop!

This product also works with Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) in version 10.3 or newer - that means you can use the presets in Adobe Photoshop, too.

Landscape Essentials / Example Photos

The sample photos are intended to give you a realistic impression of the presets. Therefore, only the basic settings like exposure, highlights or shadows were adjusted manually in some photos; everything else is based on the presets.

01 / Moody Landscapes

Five Lightroom presets for moody landscapes that are not about blue skies and sunshine. The presets unfold their full potential in scenes with clouds, fog or overcast skies - a look at my landscape portfolio will give you a good indication of the type of motifs. If this style of landscape photography is also your focus, you should take a closer look at my Signature presets, which is also included in the Complete Shop Bundle.

02 / Classic Landscapes

The total of four presets in the Classic collection have the most universal character of all the presets and work for a high number of different landscape types, seasons and times of day. The different looks are rather subtle in nature. The presets often achieve wonderful results in documentary and travel photography as well.

03 / Forest Landscapes

A total of three presets that work well for a variety of forest landscapes of the temperate climate range in all seasons except winter: Dense and dark fir forests, misty coastal woodlands, lush green spring forests or abstract macro details such as lichen, foliage and mushrooms. The special focus is on the green and brown tones of forest vegetation. All presets are based on my experiences and the looks of my complete forest landscape workflow with seven modules.

04 / Winter Landscapes

These three presets are ideal for snow-covered landscapes or polar landscapes dominated by ice, rocks and glaciers. The special focus is on the cool tones of blue and aquamarine. The presets work best for scenes with cloudy or overcast skies, as this is where the blue hue of the ice comes out best.

05 / Sunset and Sunrise

These two presets are designed for the special color palette of sunrises and sunsets. The first preset (S1) intensifies the warm tones and increases the contrast and the second preset (S2) applies a subtle orange and teal look.
