Free Lightroom Brush Presets


~ Download Gavin’s Brush Presets ~

UPDATE: These brushes no longer work properly in LR4. If you use LR2-3 download the brushes above. If you use LR4 get my new brushes.

Did you know that in Lightroom2 You can use a brush to make precise corrections, and even have brush presets ready to go to make those corrections easy.

Well I knew about LR  brushes, but I had not given enough attention to them until Matt Kloskowski posted up some darken brushes, and got my mind churning on this great workflow asset.

Here’s a collection of brush presets I made for… Burn, Dodge, Color Boost, Color Drain, Skin Soft, and Detail Boost.

Remember that these don’t work the same as my Develop presets. These are for “Brush” settings. If you need to learn how to install them take a look at my Installing Lightroom Brush Presets article.

Once you get them installed you can just select the brush effect that you want, from the drop-down. Brush size and intensity are still fully controllable with the sliders, but these preset will get you going fast.

  • Interesting way to go about it…thanks for the download.

  • We LOVE Seim effects for all of our post wedding image processing. Gavin, thanks for taking the time to provide these presets…they are wonderful and save us hours of post processing our wedding images. We were considering outsourcing our editing, but thanks to your presets…we are doing everything in house and have 100% control over our style. Great job!
