In this tutorial, I will be using 30+ Blog Photoshop Lightroom Presets, an awesome set of blogging presets for about $15 (sometimes the prices change).  For those who do not know, a Lightroom (or Photoshop) preset sets the basic color treatments, like tint and saturation, to a predefined setting.  This makes updating photographs a breeze.  And when you are a busy blogger, you so don’t need to spend hours tweaking your photos.

Insta-cropped and used Blog Photography 5 preset, as you can see in the Presets menu on the left hand side.  Notice that it is under “Blog Presets.”  Yep, you guessed it, that’s the folder name!

That’s it!  Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy.  Oh, and Joe smells much better now.
