Lightroom 5 HDR Preset – Punchy HDR

Punchy HDR, is one of my most popular HDR presets (1000+ downloads a month) that I created for use in Lightroom 4. This preset has been revised and optimised for Lightroom 5 and is available for download. Its still free just as before!! The preset works best on RAW images as they contains most information in comparison to JPEG images. Check out the preview below of the Before & After.

Lightroom 5 HDR Preset – Afternoon

This was another preset I published earlier last month and its gaining popularity as well, so I’ve gone and redone the preset for Lightroom 5 as well.

    hey. thanks for your effort to make Presets. I am currently using Lightroom5 for Windows. and it seems not allowing me to import your HDR Preset.
    Is it for Mac users? Cause I’ve added presets before. but this one isn’t allowing me.
    How can I fix this problem?
    Goodbye

      Nothing particular to do with Mac vs Windows. You can just copy the preset file “.lrtemplate” into your “Develop Presets” folder typically found under “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets\User Presets” (for Windows 8 & 7)

      Or just click the button in Lightroom under Edit > Preference > Presets, and select the desired folder “Develop Presets”

      Hi Mark,

      A few people have reported issue with the “Pay with a Like” feature, so I’ve removed it from this post. You should see the download links in the Download section.

    I know a really stupid question, but how do I use the HDR preset? Does it allow me to make an HDR out a stack of pictures that have diffrent exposures?

    Reply
    • Harmeet Gabha

      Hi Sander,

      The HDR Preset is for Lightroom only and Lightroom doesn’t natively support merging multiple/stack of images (with different exposures). The Preset is ideal for single RAW image which will be processed using this Preset to give very HDR look. Check out my YouTube video below regarding installing and using this HDR Preset on your images.
