Macro Preset by

Macro is a free Lightroom preset that adds extra details to extreme close up, outdoor macro photography. This preset is perfect in taking details, texture, landscapes, portraits, wildlife and nature images. It lets you see the things in an image that might not be able to see with the naked eye. The macro preset exaggerates the depth of the field.

Macro Preset - bee on a flower

In this bee on flower image, the macro preset increases orange, yellow and green color luminance. The after photo therefore looks brighter as the clarity, vibrance and saturation is increased.

Macro Preset - rose butterfly

The photo of this rose butterfly is very detailed as you can see on its wings. The warm temp, shadows and whites are all increased as shown in the after photo. The color of the orange flower looks vibrant.

Macro Preset - beettle

This beetle picture is amazing as you can see almost all parts of the insect's face. The macro preset added some vignetting in the background. It also increased sharpening and some noise reduction.

Macro Preset - perfect mantis

The macro preset again increases the orange, yellow and green color luminance in this perfect mantis image. The colors of the flowers have increased in brightness while the green saturation is decreased.

You can absolutely use Macro 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.
