MCP Adobe Lightroom Actions | Before and After

May 01, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Whether you are a novice or professional photographer, editing your images takes time.  That's why I LOVE LOVE LOVE MCP Actions.  My GO TO software for editing my images is Adobe Lightroom.  Therefore I recently chose to use their Adobe Lightroom Enlighten Presets which reduces my editing time by more than half - and that's saying a lot.

In the example below, just click the slider bar to see the BEFORE and AFTER.  The BEFORE is SOOC (Straight Out Of Camera).  The AFTER is using the MCP Enlighten Strong Brighten.  With just ONE CLICK I am able to bring the image to life.  You can further refine if you want.  I liken this to what Google Maps does to get you from point A to point B as fast as possible, MCP Actions gets you from camera to print-ready FAST!

NOW CHECK IT OUT BELOW!  Just move the red slider back and forth - cool isn't it?  Both just happen to use the MPC Lightroom Enlighten STRONG BRIGHTEN preset, one of my favorite GO-TO presets.

Oh, and check out some of my other favorites on MCP ACTIONS for lightroom or photoshop preset and overlay - you'll find whatever you need to make your editing process a breeze!

Next, here's a recent photo of a TOUCAN I took in Costa Rica.  While the image STRAIGHT OUT OF CAMERA (SOOC) is fine, check out the AFTER - it just POPS!  Basically it is as easy as applying a filter.  You can experiment constantly to see which effect you like the best.  You may end up having so much fun with these presets that it takes more time than before because clicking on a preset is like magic.
