Best free Lightroom presets in 2020: 65 presets for portraits, landscapes and more

46. Orange & Teal

You probably don't even need to download these presets to guess what they do to your images. The teal-and-orange look is a popular cinematic look, with the opposite color wheel tones nicely perfectly complementing one another, and these are great effects to add to images with both cold and warm tones.

47. Vintage Lightroom presets

You can never have enough vintage presets, right? This pack contains everything from blue-toned, misty effects, to light leak-infused options, and you get the Classic ii and Misty Lightroom preset options for free.

48. Cross Processing

The problem with so many cross-process filters – we're looking at you, Instagram – is that the effect can reduce the blacks in your image to shocking purple. This is one of the classier presets out there, and capable of really subtle effects.

49. CosmicDancer

If you're looking for a little something to give you some added clarity, to tone up your images and keep them looking bold and impactful, this strong but subtle free Lightroom preset is the one for you.

50. HDR preset

HDR is one of those looks that divides people. Some find it slightly gimmicky, while others love the effect. This is a preset that can surely please both sides of the debate, though, with its subtle toning and simple color boosting.

51. Intense Warm

Intense Warm does exactly what you might expect it to, but the great thing about it is that it retains a sense of subtlety that can easily get lost in a vibrant, slightly orange image. This is a great start point for a thorough, summery edit.

56. We Eat Together Food photography presets

These are not just any old presets: food always looks more appetising with a little contrast, vibrance and clarity applied, and these presets are good for making the scrumptious look truly mouthwatering.

57. Moody

While bright and colorful presets will always have their place, sometimes we all crave something a bit moodier and more dramatic. The suitably titled Moody preset ticks both of those boxes. Lifted blacks perfectly complement the heavy shadows, while the desaturated colors give you a fantastic vintage-inspired effect.

58. Spring

If the summer presets are a little too warm for your tastes and the colder tones aren't quite cutting it, you'll appreciate the middle ground offered by this preset. It's soft and bright, with just a touch of extra colour.
