9. Fade Your Lightroom Presets
We’ve already talked about organizing presets, but here’s a great tip that will change how you use them.
There are presets that I love, but I might want to lightly apply them. Instead of fully applying the effect, it would be great if I could apply it like a layer in Photoshop and dim it slightly.
Check out The Fader, a Lightroom plugin to do just that. Download the plugin, and then go to the File > Plug-In Manager menu to install.
Once the plugin is installed, go to the File > Plug-in Extras > The Fader to use the new plugin. You can choose a Lightroom preset from the dropdown and apply it to your image. Pull the Opacity slider to control how much the preset should be applied.
