Have you ever scrolled through an influencer’s Instagram feed and noticed that all of the photos look somewhat the same in terms of colour scheme? Maybe the photos were all faded with a slight orange hue, extra bright with a shade of pink, or had a blue undertone to them. These aren’t your run of the mill Instagram filters, they’re most likely Adobe Lightroom presets.
Adobe Lightroom is a photo editing software that allows you to create custom filters, amongst other photo edits. These filters can be saved and then added to any photo in the future. These presets allow for an entire Instagram feed to have the same look and feel. Lightroom isn’t a new software by any means but has recently been gaining in popularity, as influencers can now sell their custom presets to the public to be used on a mobile platform.
Once an Influencer creates a preset in Adobe Lightroom, they must sell it on an e-commerce site, as presets aren’t sold directly through the Lightroom platform itself. Filter Grade is just one of the many third-party websites where influencers can sell their Lightroom presets to the public (Filter Grade acts as a middle man for a cost). Presets can range anywhere from $25 to a whopping $200… #forthegram, right?

And yes, we know that her presets aren’t available YET. But, just based on her feed we’re going to say that they’re already going to be one of our faves. Her presets were supposed to be released on January 30th, however she wanted to take a bit more time to perfect them. Who can blame her? She’s been editing her feed with her own presets for quite some time, so we know it’s going to be good. Based off her current Instagram feed, her presets will most likely include those of a warm pink overlay, and we can’t imagine them not working in any sort of shot.
We’ll update with more information and pricing once they’ve been released, so stay tuned!
