Free Lightroom Preset : Vintage Wash

I have decided to bundle up two key Lightroom presets that I use to create a washed out vintage look in any photograph. I have been developing and tweaking four presets over the last few months to the point I have refined the processing down to just two key lightroom presets that I use as a starting point.

The two presets offer different levels of brightness and should be ideal for outdoor images. For indoor or darker images you may need to adjust the exposure levels or shadows. Adjusting the ‘clarity’ creates a sense of drama in images. You can see a before and after image below.

You can adjust the levels to enhance or reduce the vintage feel and as you can see the process also mutes the colour and vibrancy of the overall image. You can get one of the vintage wash lightroom presets below for free.
