This Orange and Teal free Lightroom preset does a great job at bringing out the orange and teal colors in photos. It mixes colors in a unique way to create a powerful take on the popular orange-teal cinematic motif. You will see in the examples below how it extracts the signature hues and fine-tunes every photographic element.
If you want to get that Hollywood blockbuster look onto your images, this is the preset to use. It is as versatile as its popularity. It looks stunning on scenes with natural light, as its orange and teal hues replicate the rich tones of the golden hour. More on this in the examples below.
Gives Your Photos The Classic Orange and Teal Cinematic Treatment
Classic Orange and Teal. You can see that this preset creates a striking look by boosting the orange and teal tones in this skyscraper photo. It adds a sort of surreal yet retro feeling to the landscape, turning the concrete of the streets to a nice blue and the tops of the trees to a retro orange. The de-saturation of the warm tones in this city shot is clear.
Did You Know? ❤️
Why is this motif irresistible? It is because these two colors, orange and teal, are complementary. They create a natural and appealing contrast for being opposite each other at the color wheel.
Creates a Breathtaking Outdoor Scenery
Rich Hues. This preset is always useful for beach scenes especially when there is tropical blue water. This really helps highlight the unique tones within a photo like the one above. You can see in the After photo that the green trees look retro and washed out with the orange hue, while the blue water is simply stunning. It looks like a tropical paradise.
The other appeal of this color theme lies in every photographer's favorite time of the day: the golden hour. This is before the sun sets; it casts dramatic lighting (hence also dramatic shadows) at various angles, in rich golden hues. This effect is what the Orange and Teal preset somehow replicates. You can observe this more closely in the After example above.

Brightens to Reveal Textures
Crisp Details. As you can see in this photo, the Orange and Teal preset can also help with pictures that don't have great lighting. You can see that the man in this image looks dark and muted, but he appears bright and stands out in the After photo. To further enhance this effect, the preset also increases clarity, and thus the overall quality of the image.
