Lightroom Presets for Aerial & Drone Photography
Make your aerial photography pop with 60 highly universal presets for Lightroom Desktop & Mobile
These are not your average 'one-click presets'.
This product is designed as a structured workflow and consists of six modules. This gives you the freedom to individually shape the final image with a selection of adjustment presets and develop a repeatable personal style in the process. A structured workflow frees you from the worries of where to start and what to do next.
Professional Lightroom workflow specially developed for the needs of aerial photography, taken from a plane/helicopter or with drones like the DJI Mavic 2 Pro/Zoom, Mavic Air or Phantom series.
Compatible with Lightroom Desktop and Mobile (DNG presets included)
All Lightroom presets are included in XMP, lrtemplate and DNG format to ensure maximum compatibility and flexibility across platforms and devices. → See also: Installation instructions and notes for mobile presets
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. 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.
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.
