Why is this worth my time? Why should I sign up?
My philosophy is to create free resources that are better than anyone else’s paid resources.

I also send out a weekly email full of exclusive content and tips & tricks that you won’t find anywhere else. My promise to you: no spam, lots of useful help with your photography.
What Versions of Lightroom / Photoshop Do the Library Resources Require?
The Lightroom Develop System requires Lightroom version 4 or later. The Colour Control ActionPack requires Photoshop CC, but can be used on earlier versions of Photoshop with a simple plugin install. The Landscape Colour Grades require Photoshop CS6 or later.

the Irtemplate presets for local adjustments are not working for me. Do you have a native XMP version.
Robert, the Local Adjustment presets in Lightroom are still in LRTemplate format and cannot be used in XMP format, unlike Develop presets.
Local Adjustment presets are installed in a different place from Develop presets – open Lightroom -> Edit menu -> Preferences – > Presets tab -> Show All Other Lightroom Presets button. Then open the highlighted Lightroom folder and copy the LRTemplate presets into the Local Adjustment Presets folder. You can then access them from the drop-down menu once you have added a new mask in Lightroom.
Thanks for the reply. Also I am considering moving to Capture One Pro. Do you have any plans on supporting Styles. I love the clarity of your system and am hoping you might make it available for those of us jumping ship to C1.
Glad you like the system!
I am not intending on setting something similar up in C1 imminently, although it may happen in the future.
I do have some free Capture One styles, although they are only one click recipes – https://www.lapseoftheshutter.com/free-capture-one-styles/
Also you might find it helpful to check out the C1 vs Lightroom comparison – https://www.lapseoftheshutter.com/capture-one-vs-lightroom/
Appreciate all the work you’ve put into developing the presets and even more so the system organization!
What’s your opinion of Luminar neo.. is it worth buying?
Sorry for the late reply. I think Luminar Neo is definitely worth buying – I bought it and use it all the time. The integration with Photoshop and Lightroom are very well done too and mean that I can easily remove all dust spots from my older images with a couple of clicks, which saves a massive amount of time.

Hey tim, is there a way to download all the 50 raw images in one file and the 50 fully-processed images in another one?? I was hoping to get your raw photos and also the edited ones in order for me to try to go from scratch, with wach and every photo, so that i could achieve the look of your final edited photos and learn how you did it. I thank you massively
Good idea! I’ve added a button to the RAW images page to download all 50 in one go – it’s towards the bottom of the page.
I haven’t got edited versions of all the photos, so can’t include those but I will put it on my list to create a video going over the processing steps in Lightroom for some of them (there are already a couple of videos linked in the article that should help).
All of the processing you see is done in Lightroom with only the presets in the Lightroom Develop System, so it should be quite easy to replicate yourself.
I do have a page that contains the Photoshop edits for some of my photos which you might find helpful – Practice Images for Photoshop.
I’ve added a few of the edited photos to the free RAW images page, so you can now see the finished versions along side the originals.
Hi Tim, I signed up but did not get a link. Is it automated or do you have to process the subscription first? This is a lot of work you have done, thanks for offering this for free, that’s amazing. Tnx
You have been sent the email with the link in automatically about the same time you posted this comment, so hopefully you have it now.
