What is a Preset?
You also may be wondering what exactly a preset is too. I was very new to the Instagram game when I first started out and I had no idea what a preset was. In fact, I went over a whole year before I finally buckled down and purchased my very first preset.
And let me tell you, I wish I did it from the very beginning! It would have saved me so much time and I believe it definitely would have helped me to increase my following sooner rather than later.
But oh well, hindsight is 20/20 so at least I can share what I’ve learned with you guys instead!
Basically, you purchase a preset from any blogger or Instagrammer you want to and then you download them into a free app called Lightroom.
Once you purchase said presets, they will be available in Lightroom for as long as you want them to be! You can continue to reuse them with every photo which is so cool!
I originally thought you had to pay every time you wanted to edit a photo so that’s why I held off on buying presets for so long originally.
Silly me! Presets are definitely a must when it comes to how to edit your photos!
Farmhouse Fresh Presets
I am very happy to report that I have partnered up with Farmhouse Fresh Presets and I can offer these presets to y’all now as well. I have been using them for a few weeks now and I am loving them!
They really make my photos and Instagram feed look 10x better and more defined. This collection comes with 15 different presets and they are only $39.
Which you can also break up into 4 easy payments of $9.75 as well. I paid like $9 for just one preset when I first started trying them, so this really is an incredible deal since you get so many!
The good news too about these presets are that they are both iPhone and Android compatible. When you purchase, you receive the files via a download page and instructions on how to open them in the Lightroom app.
They literally make it so simple and easy on how to download them that there is no confusion at all! I have outlined all the different presets that come in the collection below including all of my before and after pictures as well!

There are many factors to consider and having a few different ones to choose from always helps when editing to get the best picture. Have y’all ever used a preset before?
