Landscape Gold for Lightroom - now available

I’m delighted to announce the launch of my latest set of Lightroom presets, “Landscape Gold for Lightroom”. Landscape Gold is designed to give your images a golden hue. It creates a look which aims to mimic the effect of bright golden sunshine that is often seen in warmer climates early in the morning or late in the afternoon. While it is primarily designed for landscapes it works well with other types of image too.

There are four main versions of Landscape Gold. The names are based on popular “Carats” of Gold, and each version has a different level of tinting, so that some add a hint of gold, while the stronger ones tint your image significantly in a golden colour. Each “carat” or version has a number of “strengths”. There are three strengths of each version, “lite”, “medium” and “strong” and each of these has two versions, one with a vignette and one without a vignette. A number of modifiers are also included so that you can easily tweak settings such as vignettes and grain with a single click. There are also a number of pre-built grad effects included also.

Landscape Gold is another one of my presets that originally started life on Aperture. Because of the differences between each application, the Lightroom version of Landscape Gold is not exactly the same as the Aperture version, but is an inspiration based on it. The original Aperture version was designed around a single look, and the Lightroom version is a much broader set.

Here are some examples of Landscape Gold for Lightroom in action:
