My $5 Tropical Sunkiss Lightroom preset – coral and mint

In case you are wondering “what is this girl even talking about?” let me explain. A preset makes it so you can edit your phone photos right on your phone with a click of a button. This preset elevates phone shots to look professionally edited, with crisp, sharpened details.

Let me show you what I mean. These before and afters were created with only one click.

I worked for a long time to find something to give my Instagram feed a cohesive, unique feel, without looking fake. I’ve purchased a few presets, but was disappointed that they only worked on some photos but made other look fake — think green grass turning blue. It was frustrating!

So I decided to make my own preset: Tropical Sunkiss.

Presets are perfect for Instagram grids, but they’re also great for all photos and photo albums.

Tropical Sunkiss color tones

  • Crisp, sharpened images
  • Color edits are still REALISTIC looking
  • Works well for interior and exterior shots
  • Cool undertones
  • Sun-kissed skin
  • Coral reds and oranges
  • Mint greens 
  • Emerald blues

Three presets included

There are three presets included with this set: Cool, Coral and Mint.

Mint: Looks cohesive with 1 & 2, but calms down greens in outdoor shots, pops turquoise tones and gives you a little suntan.
