Black and White HDR Presets for Adobe Lightroom and Camera


HDR B&W is a pack of 10 professional Presets for Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw for Black and White HDR Photography in a natural style. They work great for travel, architecture and landscape photography

They are designed for general images and work with RAW, DNG, JPG, TIFF and PSD files. Best results with RAW/DNG.

Note that these presets don´t change exposition and white balance, you´ll have to adjust by yourself depending of the photo.

Depending on the histogram of the photo you may need to adjust black and white point to achieve the best results.
