Download Free Luminar Presets - Social Looks

One of my new favorite programs is MacPhun Luminar. It is an extremely fast editor for photographs. This application was built from the ground up with the help of photographer and the Internet famous Trey Ratcliff.

As of the date of this article, the program only runs on MacOS, but MacPhun has promised to port the program to the Windows operating system in the near future.

If you are fed up with the slowness of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and you are looking for a fast and responsive alternative, give Luminar a try.

Even though there are other alternatives like OnOne RAW 2017 and Capture One, Luminar does the job and it does so in a no-frills way.

The program complements perfectly with some of the other offerings from the company like Tonality, Aurora HDR, and the CK Suite.

The program also offers a large number of Presets created by the company and some famous photographers as well. The presets are either free or within the $5-$10 dollar range.

You can buy Luminar for the flat fee of US$69. No monthly fees or subscriptions. The page also offers a trial that you can use to test the program and see if it fits your needs.

Free Luminar Presets - Social Looks

Even though I might not be a "famous photographer" I decided to create some presets for the program, which I am giving away totally FREE!!

These were created to simulate some of the presets that you see in applications like Instagram and VSCO. They were inspired by some youTube videos on the topic.

The presets are packed in a zip file that you can download using the link at the bottom of this page. Unzip them locally to a folder.

To install presets on your machine, just choose File > Show Presets Folder… in Luminar. Simply drag the new presets into your Presets Folder. All presets in this folder appear in the User category and the All Presets category.

For best results, restart Luminar to load all the new presets.

Notwithstanding, the application offers complete control over each variable in the software.

Perfectly Clear Complete V3 works as a plugin for Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom and it's available for MacOS and Windows.

As part of a promotion, Athentech os offering a Set of Looks and some extra presets. If you own an earlier version, you can get the new version at a discount.

I was an owner of Version 2 of the program and got the upgrade for free. I am going to be putting the software through its paces and see if it measures to my needs.
