The Sunset Preset is a free Lightroom preset that is suitable not only for photos taken in golden hours but with any photo which is taken naturally as it changes the colors from cold to warm. This beautiful preset gives a beautiful matte tonal shade and gives a unique enchanted effect in sky and sunset photos. The sunset preset increases the warm tones and red, orange and yellow colors saturation in portraits while decreasing the aqua, blue, purple and magenta saturation.
In this jumping man photo, the blue tones in the sky is decreased while the red and orange in the ray of sunset is increased. After applying the preset, this image becomes more dramatic with emphasized details in dark areas as seen in the background.
The sunset preset makes images more pleasant and make you feel like you are watching the sunset with your own eyes as revealed in the scenic mountain representation. The highlights and blacks are decreased but the shadows and whites are increased as seen in the flowers. Again, the orange tones in the sunset are amplified while the blue tones in the sky is reduced.
The magenta and purple tones in this shield volcano photo are both decreased. The sunset preset adds vignetting and noise reduction. It also increased the clarity and contrast in this photo.
One more case of magenta and blue tones decreased is seen in this sunset over the ocean image. The preset enhances this portrait by creating a custom tone curve and adding some soft, warm and lovely tones.
