Creating Hipstamatic Like Photos in Lightroom

About a year ago I decided to create a few mini preset sets for Lightroom so that I could share some of my favorite settings used in my post production. I was pretty shocked and overwhelmed with the response and how many people out there were looking for great Lightroom presets. Over the past few months I have been working on creating some new Lightroom Presets starting with this first set that is based off one of my favorite iPhone apps, Hipstamatic.

Hipstamatic Like Presets for Lightroom

I am very excited today to release this new set of presets and think many of you will love these! One of my favorite apps for the iPhone for taking photos has always been the Hipstamatic app. Not only is the retro interface of the app fun to use but the effects really hit the mark to give you that perfect retro photo feel. I sometimes get bummed though when I take a shot that would work well with this retro feel but took it in the native camera (or another) app. Since you can’t import images to apply the filters why not use Lightroom to get a Hipstamatic look later then.

Today I am releasing a set of Lightroom presets that are inspired by the hipstamatic look. The Digital Photo Buzz Hipster Lightroom presets are a set of 13 retro style presets for Lightroom that also come with a separate version with a border and some extra light leaks. So in total you get 26 Lightroom presets. Check out the samples below to see more of what these awesome presets can do for your photography.

I also want to make these presets very affordable for everyone so am pricing them at just $14. There are so may packs of presets that include 50 or 100 presets and in my opinion they just overwhelm you with too many presets. In the end you usually only end up using a handful of them anyway. So I wanted to create a group of presets that would have enough variety but still not be overwhelming, and also for a great value!

A few notes:

These were created for RAW images.

Since the border version of the presets also add’s gradients to make light leak effects when trying out one of these and then changing your mind and applying a new preset first Reset the image in Lightroom then apply the next preset. If you don’t the light leak effects will still remain.

Also as with all Lightroom presets they might look different on each photo depending on exposure, contrast, etc… Remember to always use the presets as a starting point and customize from there to make the image perfect.

  3. Its nice to share presets, however your Hipster5 Preset with border doesnt make sense. Light leaks dont run over borders. It stops where the photo stops.
