In recent years, Lightroom became the most important tool for any type of photographers. These days, it is more useful and effective than Photoshop. Lightroom covers three crucial aspects of photography: Photo Organization, Photo Editing, and Publishing. If I had to choose the only tool to recommend to a beginner, it would be Lightroom.

It is no wonder then that the most popular resource on my blog is my Free Lightroom Preset Collection . This collection represents 10 years of my experience of editing and processing photos and reflects my personal style and my artistic vision. Just download the collection and I promise that it will help you to improve your photography, save time on processing but, most importantly, it will demonstrate how I approach the process of editing photos.

And, if you need further help, the collection comes with a tutorial.
