Gypsy Soul free Lightroom preset gives photos a tropical look and feel. The blend of its yellow and blue tones creates the preset's signature warm green tint that simulates the look of some vintage films. It also moderately brightens and intensifies colors for a lively yet laid-back summer atmosphere.
The preset's unique light and airy motif will look best on outdoor travel photos that feature beaches and other sunny scenery. You can make the most of this preset on photos that have a lot of blues in them, especially of the sea and sky.
You can use Gypsy Soul, too, as an Instagram filter that will give your vacation images a stylish and cohesive look and feel. If you want to add an artistic flair to your summer pictures, this preset is a must-try.
Creates a Summer Vintage Look
Warm Film. Gypsy Soul preset creates the base of its signature look by first tinting its tones: yellow in the highlights and blue-violet in the shadows. Like many film presets, there is a light coat of magenta tint. This helps draw out that retro or vintage charm. This look is, of course, completed by a vignette to frame the entire scene.
You can examine the result of these creative adjustments in the After photo above. Observe how the preset blends yellow and blue tones and uses magenta to produce a timeless feel. Specifically compare the brighter skies and the brightened palm trees that line both sides.
Brightens and Lightens Images
Bright and Light. The preset increases exposure to brighten the image and accentuate the sunny feel. It also moderates its brightening by muting the highlights as well. Not only does this make sure that no bright areas look overblown, but it also creates a charming soft matte look. Notice how this also draws out some details that are otherwise masked by stark brilliance.
Creates a Soft Look
Softened Hues. Gypsy Soul preset complements its matte texture with soft yet brilliant colors. It lightens midtones by decreasing clarity and amplifies color with an increase in vibrance and saturation.
The preset further optimizes these moderated hues for beach or tropical scenes. It increases the luminance of the color blue and lowers its saturation to make it deep and rich. As a result, the photos will consistently have brilliant blue skies and seas.
Draws Out Details and Reduces Noise
Fine Textures. To enhance and make the most of nature's complex details, Gypsy Soul boosts sharpening. This is coupled with noise reduction as well.
You can examine the result in the After photo above. Compare the textures and refined details of the branches. You can clearly see the waves as well despite all the brightening settings.
