Instagram Presets for Lightroom: The Ultimate Collection

This is the most complete package of presets for Adobe Lightroom designed to emulate filters of the popular Instagram app. Two collections Insta-1 + Insta-3 in this one bundle. 35 Lightroom presets in total. So you get all the old and new presets from various versions of instagram.

What is included?

  • 2 folders (Insta1 + Insta 3) containing 35 beautiful Lightroom presets
  • Currently one of the highest rated preset collections by Adobe customers.

Each preset was back-engineered by a group of digital imaging professionals over a few months to be as similar as possible to Instagram’s filters. They even have the old-school filters like Gotham if you preferred the original filters better from earlier versions of Instagram. Originally these presets were designed for using with normally exposed jpeg/tiff/psd images. Of course, you can apply it to any of your RAW files but the result will be quite unpredictable due to differences in RAW formats which different camera manufacturers have. So they recommend converting your RAW into picture format first. I tested them with RAW files from a Canon 5D Mark III and they worked great.

    I don’t understand what you are saying or I don’t understand what to do: “So they recommend converting your RAW into picture format first.” In Lightroom how do you convert a raw file into picture format??

  2. Julia Olsen says:

    I take all my images in both camera raw and jpg. That way no conversion is needed. How to do this should be in your camera documentation.

    But if you have images in lightroom, you can export them to a number of different file formats:

    file–>export–>then there are a number of settings you can choose, be sure to scroll down.

    Potentially interested in their film presets bundle. Are you planning to post a deal with it?
