Get that 80’s look

Written by on December 14, 2008 in Presets - 9 Comments

Sitting here with my laptop in my knees as I’ve done so many nights before:-) I Connected my 1TB external disk and opened Lightroom without any idéas on what to do. After playing around with the adjustments for some time I came up with this preset.

This is tonights attempt to simulate the feeling of an old photo that has been laying in the shelf since the 80’s. The name of the preset is “PH So 80’s”. Try and see if you like it.

    I was wondering if you could check the download link, it cames up with an error message. I love your site and the presets are great. Would love to give this one a try.
