The Dark Desire preset is a free lightroom preset that gives a photo a unique atmosphere and unsaturated, faded colors. It is perfect for lifestyle, portraits and adventure photographs. This preset mutes the bright colors in an image while increasing red luminance.
As seen in this Asian girl picture, the blue tones in the girl’s dress is muted. But the red lips and the flower petals are illuminated. Only the green and blue hues are muted in the Dark Desire preset.
Dark Desire preset does not totally turn photos into black and white. In this photographer image, blacks are increased while whites are decreased. The vibrance and shadow are also increased
In this ladder museum photo, again the other bright colors like blue and yellow on some of the people’s shirts are turned into black and gray. There is a noticeable increase in black colors and decreased saturation.
Dark Desire preset also created a custom curve with fade effect in upper blue and green channels as shown in this building image. The color of the building decreased while the orange color in bar is heightened. This preset also decreased some clarity and highlights while adding vignetting with low midpoint.
You can absolutely use Dark Desire as is, right out of the box. With any preset you might need to make adjustments to accommodate your specific camera, settings, lighting and subject matter.
