Down & Dirty Creative Editing in Lightroom Classic & Photoshop | Dustin Lucas

Once I save the preset I can quickly apply it to multiple images at a time. Once the export and droplet are done, the last step is to re-import the TIFF files back into Lightroom. Boom—now we are done! (before/after)


settings: f2.8 @ 1/250 iso 200



Now that I’ve set up a solid workflow, I can keep up year-round on delivering sneak peeks or down and dirty edits to my clients. By using both Lightroom and Photoshop I can batch multiple images at once to save a ton of time. In Lightroom, it’s all about profiles and local adjustments to get started. After I create presets and sync develop settings, editing couldn’t be easier. With Photoshop, everything always starts out with long step-by-step processes. Once I create actions and droplets I can turn images so much faster. By using Lightroom for custom profiles and Photoshop for my dodge and burn technique, I am set. If you want to offer quick creatives for your client, I highly recommend working efficiently and trying out these techniques. You got this!
