Pastelscapes is a premium preset that adds stylish pastels to your photos. It uses these tones to soften the look of images and add a dreamy look and feel. These airy romantic hues work best on images taken under natural light.
With this preset, you can have stunning travel pictures, landscape shots, and outdoor portraits. Unlike other free pastel presets, Pastelscapes was designed with a series of adjustments for every photographic element.
Adds a Layer of Warm Pink
Pink Matte. This preset brings all the stylish aesthetics together: pastel hues, soft mate, and warm color temperature. This is after all the desirable look to go for when you want a captivating yet tender impression. Also, a tip: this filter can be used in social media like Instagram. It will do an amazing job at unifying your content.
This pink preset for Lightroom looks great on beach or coastal photos, as you can see in the images above; see how the preset handles the colors of sea and sand perfectly. It creates this effect by adding an overarching warm pink tone. Then, for the signature matte texture, Pastelscapes applies further adjustments in tone: it decreases exposure and contrast, mutes highlights and some whites, and brightens blacks.
Brightens as it Softens Tones
Balanced Tones. Notice how bright the After image is, yet it still has that tender look. To generate this effect, the preset amplifies the photo’s vibrance and subtly lowers its saturation.
It further applies several and more detailed improvements in the tone curve. It mutes highlights and brightens both light and dark tones. This balanced combination of tweaks produces tones that are neither flat nor overblown. The resulting effect complements the overall pastel style of this preset.
Let us examine the After photo: the swimwear colors are softer, shadows are lighter, and the texture is mattified. In the next example below, we will show you how the preset handles colors to enhance both land and sky.
You can try another similar look by using our Pink and Peach Lightroom Preset. That one also has gorgeous pastels but with an airy look and feel. It also blends gorgeously with some peach hues! You’ll love it.
Finely Adjusts Colors for Stunning Pastel Hues
A Splash of Pastels. Pastelscapes boosts both hue and saturation of warm and mid-temp colors. You can notice this on the darker tones of the image above, like the sand and the coconut tree trunk. On the other hand, it softens cool hues, hence the complementary blues of the sky.
With these adjustments in color intensity are tweaks in the color’s lightness. The preset increases the luminance of cool and mid-temp colors, and softens reds and yellows for that unmistakable airy summer feel.
