Aerial & Drone Photography | Lightroom Presets Workflow
Make your aerial photography pop with 60 highly universal presets for Lightroom Desktop & Mobile*
Professional Lightroom workflow specially developed for the needs of aerial photography, taken from a plane or helicopter or with drones like the DJI Mavic 2, Mavic Pro/Air or Phantom 4.
All presets are grouped into workflow modules, and the general looks are divided into realistic looks and artistic looks to provide a wide range of editing options in Adobe Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC and Classic CC as well as Lightroom Mobile (using this synchronisation method via Adobe Lightroom for Desktop)
The presets are extremely universal and work on a variety of different landscape types during all seasons of the year:
Sunny beach and coastal landscapes, cloud-shrouded mountain peaks, clear mountain lakes, misty forests, and dry desert regions. This collection clearly follows the "quality over quantity" approach, and the presets have been extensively tested on a large number of images from different camera and drone models.

Developed for Lightroom 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.
Note for mobile users: You need to import the presets into your Lightroom desktop application (not Lightroom Classic) on your Windows or Mac computer first. The presets will then automatically sync with the cloud and will be available on your mobile device. → Step-by-step guide by Adobe.
Also works with the latest version of Adobe 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.
How my presets work
This collection of Lightroom presets is created as a workflow and follows a logical order, and all 60 presets are grouped into six modules.
There are a total of 8 realistic looks (R1–R8) and 6 artistic looks (A1–A6) to choose from. Each look comes in two different intensity levels. This product is ideal for amateurs and professionals alike.
1. Exposure (9 presets)
2a. Realistic Looks (16 presets)
2b. Artistic Looks (12 presets)
3. Vignetting (5 presets)
4. Split Toning (9 presets)
5. Noise Reduction (4 presets)
6. Sharpening (4 presets)
Remember that every preset is meant as a starting point. You’ll need to fine-tune certain settings, like color-temperature and the blacks and whites under the 'Basic' panel when editing.
I bought the Aerial presets because the RAW files from my DJI Mavic 2 seemed very "flat" and I was a bit overwhelmed with all the sliders in Lightroom... I still don't know all the features (yet), but the modular structure helps me out very much. I'm really happy with the results and the presets work especially well with my coastal and forest images. It's just the right amount of different looks and it's definitely fun to experiment with!! DJI should deliver those together with the drone :)
