Frequently Asked Questions
Presets, often referred to more specifically as Lightroom presets, make global changes to an image. On average, our presets change 30-50 settings within an image. Filters often change only basic settings within an image or add a basic graphic to an image. They can’t be modified and are often limited to use within specific programs like Instagram or smart phones. Presets provide much more advanced editing options and controls versus filters. They’re used within a software application known as a gold-standard within the photography industry, making them much more complex and adaptable to the unique features of photos.
Editing images on a larger screen (desktop vs mobile) or with more robust software (Lightroom subscription vs free mobile app) will result in higher quality edits. But is it necessary? Certainly not. All images can easily be shot, edited, and posted from a mobile device. In fact, using presets when working on mobile will help to ensure that minute details (typically only visible to the naked eye on desktop) will be included in your image edit, so that your pictures look stunning whether viewed on a giant desktop screen or pint-sized mobile device.
