Make My Day is a free Lightroom preset that is perfect for everyday blogger photos. It gives any picture a modern urban atmosphere. The overall effect is attractive and ideal for all types of photography. You can use this filter when publishing content that contains a series of images, like in websites and Instagram.
If you are looking for a signature look that can apply to all your image uploads, Make My Day is the best preset to use.
Gives a Soothing Look & Feel
Cool Look & Feel. The preset cools down the temperature by adding a soothing blue tone. To balance and complete the look, the filter also intensifies the reds. The After photo above is clearly cooler in temperature: look at the floor and the man's shirt that are now slightly blue. This is not simply an adjustment in the color temperature slider; the highlights and shadows are tinted to achieve this effect. There are blue-violet hues in the highlights, while there is a tinge of purple in the shadows. This sees to it that the depth of the photo is retained, even with the cool matte effect. The man's red shoes and sweater also pop more now and effectively serve as the image's visual accents.
Smooths and Adds Drama to Portraits
Dramatic Portraits. Make My Day preset is designed with fashion bloggers in mind, too. This means that portraits and selfies are considered. With tweaks in clarity and saturation, skin tones appear smoother. Highlights are also muted to maximize the details in the photograph. Notice how the woman's face in the After photo look more defined, with more of her features revealed. Lastly, for an understated punchy effect, see how Make My Day boosts the red tones of this image by examining the brick wall background.
Modernizes and Adds Style
Stylishly Modern. Try using this stylish preset on high key photographs. The abundance of white is perfect for making warm colors pop. In the example above, you can see that the items on the bed are mostly in warm tones that serve as attractive accents. Compare the Before and After above: from pale to vibrant, flat to compelling, and ordinary to stylish. The blue-violet hues add an air of sophistication and modern style. Finally, a boost in sharpness and clarity enhance textures throughout the image.
Makes Spaces More Vibrant
Homey Vibrance. What makes Make My Day preset special is that it adds a sense of warmth even if it cools down most of the photo's colors. The above example illustrates this well: the white walls are bluer, cooler, yet the atmosphere it exudes is cozy and warm. This unique look and feel is because of the intensified warm tones; although only few, the effect is already stunning. The floorboards in the After photo above have greater saturation, so do the objects in the adjacent room. You can therefore use this preset when featuring interiors and other indoor scenes.
