Lightroom HDR simulation and desaturation templates

In one of my earlier posts, I mentioned a quick and easy way to simulate HDR from a single image in Lightroom. That post was a popular one, and I have had a few requests for the preset, so I have decided to post it here.

I am also including a simple desaturation preset to give you one-click desaturation of an image to give you a base for a black and white photo. This is one of my most used presets. I don't know why Adobe doesn't include this as a standard preset.

Matt Kloskowski has an excellent video on installing presets over on his Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Killer Tips site.

  2. It's fixed now. Sorry for the mixup. At some point I accidentally made the site hosting the files private.
