How I Edit My Photos (Fade Preset)

As I mentioned in this post, I will be sharing how I did my photos using the Lightroom preset that I received from my friend. So if you really like fade effect, then this preset/tutorial is for you. It's not really my style but I have to admit that I use it a few times to edit photos that I think won't go well with my usual preset. Mostly photos with lots of colours and background images. I will try to make it as simple as I could, just follow these steps:




━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

THE BASIC


  1. Temp: +6
  2. Tint: +1
  3. Exposure: +1.15
  4. Contrast: -2
  5. Highlights: +14
  6. Shadows: +60
  7. Whites: +40
  8. Blacks: +29

You don't have to adjust the clarity, whites and blacks in the basic section as well as the selective colours if your photo editor doesn't have those features. Just skip these steps. For me, I can't skip the selective colours editor because I always relying on it to fix unwanted colours in my photos. Below are a few 'before & after photos (from Unsplash) and for examples. All the before photos are unedited except for the last photo, I purposely choose bright and airy photo for a different example. You can see the colour consistency of the edited photos.

You can adjust the brightness, contrast, and highlight to your liking. If it's too luminescing, try to decrease the whiteness, contrast or highlight. If you want it darker, do decrease the blackness, shadow and contrast. The selective colours can be adjusts if the apps you are using on your phone/computer are available.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I am deeply sorry if this tutorial doesn't come out the way you want it to be, or if your photos turned out differently because some features are only available on Lightroom. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me. I'll be here to help as much as I could. I'd love to use VSCO but I don't have the time to transfer all the photos from my laptop to my phone and then to the laptop again. I preferred to do everything in one device, so that is why I have this preset ready in my Lightroom so I can use it with just one click, and I'm done.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━


If your blog or instagram has a dark or moody style to it then this edit is the one for you. Fade effect gives off moody vibe to your photos which is why I love to use this preset when I'm in a rush or when my photo is not suitable for bright and airy edits like I do for all my photos. I hope the steps and instructions are clear and easy to follow. Feel free to play around with it to suit your liking.
Thank you for reading and much love from me, T.

    1. It's my pleasure because I promised to share how I edit my photos.
      LR mobile can use it too. Just follow those steps and save it as a new preset.
      Every time you want to edit your photos, just tap the preset and you're done!

    1. Yes, I like to experiment with new presets or edits to see if I can find my preferred one.
      Tqa pun guna LR je both for laptop and for mobile. Super convenient.
      Cuma perlu adjust warna dan brightness je.
