MYTHS

PRESET

- Presets only make your life easier when you understand how they work & what they are doing to your images

- Presets are only as powerful & as useful as the knowledge of the user

- Many presets leave you feeling frustrated & confused about your style instead of empowered

- Presets can truly only deliver consistency with understanding of Lightroom’s power!

PRESET

The
KJ PRESET PrOCESS

If you’ve ever spent your hard earned money on presets hoping that they would transform your work and give you a consistent style, only to be left with frustration and confusion, you’re not alone. For years, I have heard complaints from photographers that sometimes their traditional presets work and sometimes they just don't! 

Without a system that breaks down your editing process into a simple, step-by-step process,  you will spend hours hopelessly clicking away trying to find the “right look” but never fully understanding the root  issue with your images and your edits. 

What if I told you that there was a PRESET PROCESS that allowed you to experience the EFFICIENCY OF PRESET EDITING while simultaneously empowering you to find exactly the right refinements and adjustments you need to make presets work for any image? 

I'm THRILLED to introduce the "KJ Preset Process".

The KJ Preset Process isn’t your traditional preset pack... it’s a 4-step editing system within Lightroom that harnesses the power of both profiles and presets that empowers photographers to feel in-control of their editing. 

This intuitive editing process will transform the way you have experienced presets in the past!!!
 
If you’re ready for a simple, 4-step educational preset process that will make Lightroom seem like a friend instead of a constant frustration, this was created just for you!




PRESETS ARE NOT ONE-SIZE-FITS ALL... and they never can be

DIFFERENCE

Step 1: foundations

Step 2: refine

Step 3: select your tone

"opening up" the image to add pop/contrast
quick refinements to perfect exposure & pop
select your color tone & easily change its intensity  through the power of profiles

Step 4: color refine

if necessary, apply additional, specific color refinements

BEFORE & AFTER

Like most preset sites, here are some before and after images! However, what makes these images different is the fact that they were created with complete control over the editing process. Instead of clicking one base preset that combines everything from tonal curve adjustments to color grading to HSL slider adjustments and adjustments in the basic tab..... these images were created in a 4-step process that empowers photographers to experience a level of flexibility that they have never had before while using presets & profiles!

Jill is a fine art photographer and the owner of Veil Presets. These fine-art presets are used by thousands of photographers around the world and known for their incredible ability to emulate film edits! We're thrilled to have a dear friend and talented creative partner with us in the creation of this preset process! 

MEET JILL

The KJ Education community is compiled of over 20,000 photographers from around the globe and guess what... not every photographer desires to have the exact same style as Katelyn! Many of our students desire to have a more fine art look to their edits! When we designed the concept of the KJ Preset Process, we wanted to empower photographers to find their style even if it wasn't exactly bright and bold like KJ's. Jill and Katelyn worked together to create Fine Art preset and profile options that are embedded into the KJ Preset Process to expand the editing possibilities for users! 

how does it work...

OUR COLLABORATION WITH

I've been manual editing for 12 years and at first, the concept of a step-by-step process like this seemed like it would hinder me rather than help me. However, after creating this tool, I've found myself subconsciously flying through these steps and editing at a faster pace than I have in 12 years! This is happening because I'm streamlining my manual editing system into steps which is making my editing more efficient!

What if I prefer manual editing?

Yes! I'm in!

in case you're wondering

What if I don't edit with Katelyn's style?

The Preset Process wasn’t designed for one style!

Will the KJ Preset Process work on JPEGS?

No, this process was designed for RAW images only.

Will I be able to adjust certain colors and contrast levels?

Yes! Super quickly and with complete control!

Are these PRESETS or PROFILES?

An innovative combo of both! Step 1,2 & 4 are Presets and Step 3 us made of profile options for skins tones!

What if I like a film style?

Great! We partnered with Veil Presets to provide more fine-art options in each step!

BEFORE & AFTER

BEFORE

After

 In order to use the KJ Preset Process, you need version 7.3 or later, we recommend the newest version of Lightroom Classic (that includes color grading vs split toning). Using other versions of Lightroom may altar your experience with the product. 

What version of lightroom do i have to have?

The KJ Preset Process was created for any experience level. However, if you’ve never used Lightroom before, we highly recommend the KJ Consistency Course first. The Consistency Course was created to teach photographers about all that Lightroom has to offer. This Preset Process was created to speed up photographer’s editing time and automate some of the main patterns in editing that I share in the KJ Consistency Course. 

IS THIS FOR BEGINNERS OR MORE EXPERIENCED PHOTOGRAPHERS?

It is a 4-Step preset process. Instead of clicking one preset that alters temperature and color tones, HSL adjustments, contrast, shadows, tonal curve, etc. we have broken down the editing process into easy-to-manage steps that build on one another in a way that gives you what each image needs. It’s a bridge between manual editing and traditional one-click preset editing! 

How does the kj preset process work?

The KJ Preset Process was created for photographers who prefer a bright and airy style. It's very important for dark and moody photographers to recognize that this process of editing is not geared towards their style and we do not recommend purchasing this if you are a dark and moody photographer.

What if my style is dark and moody?

KJ products that are digital downloads are nonrefundable or exchangeable. Once you are given access to this download there is no way "give it back."


Is this product refundable?

The KJ Preset Process includes 40 presets/profiles to help simplify some of what can make Lightroom overwhelming!

HOW MANY PRESETS WILL I BE RECEIVING? 

If you are a Consistency Course student, and have completed the course, the KJ Preset Process will take your knowledge and expertise of lightroom that you learned in the course and will automate it into quickly accessible steps. The advantage that you have over photographers who have not taken the Consistency Course is that you have a complete knowledge of what each of these steps are doing in the right hand side of Lightroom which enables you to have even more control over your editing. This Preset Process will speed up your manual editing process that you’ve learned through the Consistency Course. Consider the KJ Preset Process as a helpful accessory to the Consistency Course but not a necessity.  

I ALREADY HAVE THE KJ CONSISTENCY COURSE, IS THIS STILL FOR ME?

Traditional presets provide photographers with a signature or base preset that is all encompassing but rarely matches exactly what every image needs, thus requiring the photographer to know how to use enhancement presets to adjust the base preset to fit their needs. The KJ Preset Process was created in four steps to help photographers have complete control over their preset process instead of feeling confined and limited by only one base option. This preset process empowers photographers to understand the power of manual editing in a semi-automated form! It also strategically utilizes a combination of presets and profiles to make the process more user friendly and more adaptable to every image's needs. 

How is this different than other presets?

The KJ Preset Process is an intuitive mix of traditional presets and profiles. We use these two different tools in a strategic chronological order to give photographers more editing power then they would have through just traditional presets alone. 

Does KJ preset process use true presets or profiles?

These local adjustment brushes are used when traditional slider style edits do not fix an isolated issue in the image.

What do you use the bonus adjustment brushes for?

Currently the KJ Preset Process is only available for the Desktop version of Lightroom Classic. 

IS the kj preset process OFFERED IN A MOBILE OPTION?

Our dedicated KJ Support Team would love to chat with you, and make sure this is the right fit! Email us at katelyn@katelynjames.com with any questions and we'll get back to you asap!

I have other questions, how can I reach out?

You will need to use Lightroom Classic (not lightroom CC), Lightroom needs to be version 7.3 or higher, you need to be editing RAW files only (not jpegs, tiff).
