Editing an image is an important part of the photography process, but if you are anything like me, you really don't have a lot of time to spend at your computer playing with your photos. Using Lightroom is relatively quick and easy anyway, but there is a way you can save even MORE time by using helpers such as presets.
A preset is simply an edit that has been "recorded" so that you can apply the same steps to any image you wish, with just one click of your mouse. This can save you a lot of time processing your images, as all you need to do is click on the preset and leave Lightroom to to do rest of the work moving all the sliders etc for you. Kinda like having an editing servant 😄
