Use these red Lightroom presets to make shades of red pop in your photos.

You can strategically use this aesthetic on your social media, especially if you want a certain picture to pop on your feed.

As with all our presets, these are simple to use. You can also refer to our preset installation guide for step-by-step instructions that beginners can easily follow. Once you are set, go ahead and download these free Adobe Lightroom presets.

Vivid Red | Lightroom Preset for Red Accents

This Vivid Red preset is so striking and can save you a lot of time. Instead of muting the saturation per color, simply download and apply this preset to your photo. This preset mutes other colors to accentuate red, as you can see in this portrait:

Best forPhotos with red accents on subjects or foreground objects
StyleAccentuated reds, unsaturated colors

Recommended Adjustments

The adjustments I suggest here are somewhat granular, but they are great if you want to be specific about the colors you want on your photo. Here’s how you find them:

  • While under the Develop tab on Lightroom Desktop, scroll to the HSL Panel on the right. Expand it to reveal all color settings.
  • While editing on Lightroom Mobile, navigate to Color > Mix. You can select a color at a time from the top bar.
Saturation (under the HSL Panel)Reveal some colors according to preference, or to optimize skin tones
Luminance (under the HSL Panel)Adjust lightness and richness per color

To make the most of this style, apply this Vivid Red preset to images that already have a dominantly red hue, on the subject or select foreground elements. Best of all, you can still apply this preset to portraits! The preset preserves some oranges hues for the skin tones. Just follow my suggested tweaks above if you want to get a more accurate look.

Red Dawn I | Best of our Free Red Hue Lightroom Presets

This Red Dawn I preset is ideal if you have an image that you want to dramatically transform into red hues. You will not need a specifically red photo for this one — the preset itself will turn your image’s colors into stunning reds.

I love how creative the results always are with this preset. I suggest you use it on cityscape and landscape photos so you can make the most of its tonal effects. Just look at those gorgeous light streets in the example above.
