This Orange and Teal preset does a great job of bringing out the orange and teal colors in photos. This is our unique and powerful take on the popular orange-teal cinematic motif. It has been a long-time favorite among our users, and you will definitely see why in our examples below.
If you want to get that Hollywood blockbuster look onto your images, this is the perfect preset to use. We love how versatile this look actually is! It looks great on all types of photos. We made sure that this preset looks stunning on scenes with natural light; you will easily notice that the rich tones somehow replicate the magical look of the golden hour.
Gives Your Photos The Classic Orange and Teal Cinematic Treatment
Classic Orange and Teal. We create this preset’s striking look by boosting the orange and teal tones. Just look at this skyscraper photo. Orange and Teal adds a sort of surreal yet retro feeling to the cityscape. See how the concrete streets now have a nice blue, and the tops of the trees a vintage orange. Notice how we also soften the tones to complement the entire classic atmosphere.
As you can see from our examples, this preset instantly adds drama. In designing this preset, we made sure that our free Orange and Teal Lightroom preset sets a powerful and dynamic atmosphere to any scene.
Why is this Orange and Teal motif popular and 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 Movie-Like Scenery
Rich Hues. This preset is exceptionally beautiful when applied to photos of beaches and tropical scenes. 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 motif 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.

Reveals Dramatic Tones Textures
Crisp Details. As you can see in this photo, our 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, we also enhance clarity levels. This emphasizes depth and detail so well. Try to examine how this effect blends with the entire cinematic aesthetic. It attractively adds to the dramatic look of the preset and simply grabs attention.
In case you haven’t noticed yet, this preset is awesome as a thematic filter that would give your Instagram or blog a cohesive look!
