Lightroom Presets for Aerial & Drone Landscape Photography
Make your aerial photography stand out with this highly universal workflow for Adobe Lightroom & Lightroom Classic.
60 Lightroom presets specially developed for the needs of aerial landscape photography, taken from a plane or helicopter or with drones like the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom/Pro, Mavic Pro, Mavic 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.
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.
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)
All presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC, and Classic CC (.lrtemplate & XMP-files) on both Windows and Mac. 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. Every preset has been carefully crafted and tested to work with a wide variety of images and camera models.
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 :)
