Illuminate Edit #1

Let's start with this image, already fully edited. All it needs is the perfect finishing touch from the new Illuminate collection for Lightroom of course.

Illuminate Lightroom Presets

We chose the Diffuse Multicolor preset for this image. This preset choice was a tough one because many looked great, but once we clicked on this one and saw how it lit up our image it was love at first sight. To apply the preset, we just chose our favorite of the forty five different enhancements and clicked on it to apply and voila - it applied to the image!  Yes, it is really that simple - and FUN!

Illuminate Edit #2

Who wants to see another edit? OK, let’s play with this image, already edited and awaiting a magical touch from...you guessed it, the Illuminate Collection!

Light Overlays for Lightroom

We chose Bokeh Flare 1 to add to this image. Like a lot of the other presets we can maintain control by having the choice to pick either left or right orientations.

For this particular image, we chose to have the flare come in from the right side because that is the direction the natural light is coming from.
