Who doesn't know it? - the pictures from the last Bali holiday look totally faded and unspectacular and also the snapshots from your city break to London are just dull and boring. So that you can still make professional photos out of your favorite pictures, we have created the perfect presets for these emergencies, which will make every one of you an Instagram star in no time! Whether "Adventure Love", "City Haze" or "Tropical Taste" - from now on these color filters are your faithful “photo rescue" companions and allow you to design your feed in your very own personal style!
So if you're one of those people who've always wanted to give your photos that certain something (even without having a master’s degree in image editing), but have tried the standard filters of the world over and over again, then our free Kapten & Son Preset Collection for your smartphone is the very thing for you!
With this in mind: Get out your smartphones and cameras, Kaptens, and "snap" like there’s no tomorrow!
The Preset Basic Course:
Not only influencers or photographers use presets to edit their images faster, but the entire Instagram community is now very keen on the special image editing technology. For those of you who are not in the preset game yet, we've put together all the important information so that everyone can take full advantage of the Instagram hype!
Presets are actually color filters that create a certain look by adding a predesigned edit to an image, such as exposure, saturation or depth. With presets, you no longer have to edit every single photo, but can automatically apply your favorite look to your pictures. This not only saves you a lot of time, but also gives you the opportunity to quickly give your snapshots the same look and create the perfect conditions for an uniform feed on any social media platform.
But presets are also a real blessing for anyone who wants to add a little variety to their image editing: You can edit every single filter individually over and over again and of course you don't have to commit to just one preset style.
Furthermore the presets are very easy to use, because all you need is your mobile phone, the Lightroom app and a preset of your choice. Once you've downloaded the free Adobe Lightroom CC App, you can upload your presets to the app (also without subscribing) and edit your images with the new filter. Of course at the end of this article we will show you in our installation guide how it all works in detail, so that nothing can stand in the way of your influencer-worthy feed!
But first of all we show you the jewels of our first Kapten & Son Preset collection and hope that you will be just as excited as we are!
