Fall *PoP* Lightroom 3 Preset

Fall is here and if your anything like me, you've been gathering a ton of great fall images!  If not, get out there now!

I'm turning every week into a time for giving here at APB.  From now on, there will be free presets for the Lightroom 3 develop module posted and available for download each week.  Some weeks there will be several, other's just one.  If you have any ideas for a style you like, send me a link to a picture, or explain it to me in e-mail and I will do my best to create an accurate preset to render edits like it.  Also, any suggestions are greatly appreciated for making the presets I release better.  Contact me at

Remember, these presets may not improve images depending on lighting and capture settings.  Though they will work great for most!  Installation instructions are posted below the sample images.

Here is the grab link for this weeks free preset titled Fall *PoP* and designed to pop the sky and golden colors in your fall images:  Click Here to Download the Fall Colors Preset

Here's a few samples, the small scaled down images don't show the dramatic difference, so download the preset and try it on your own images.  The effect is not intended to be overdone, just enough pop in just the right color channels!

Your images are too small in your posts to actually take a close look at the presets.
