27x Lightroom edit styles
Inspired by urban Japan, these Adobe Lightroom presets offer a professional base to edit your images of any genre, for a unique and eye-catching style.

These presets follow on from  the highly popular vol.1 and are stylistically created to assist more with night time cinematic looking shots, as well as regular everday urban scenes.

Compatible with ALL cameras
With heavy attention to the cleanliness and shininess of urban Japan, these presets will work exceptionally well across all camera manufacturers, including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm and more.

Though inspired by Japan, these presets will also work very well with photos from any location around the world!

How to use
Simply follow the included instruction PDF to load the presets into Lightroom. With your selected image in the develop mode, click the chosen preset from the presets panel on the left, to apply a unique look.

It's incredibly fast and easy to improve your images!

For best results, due to every image being different, apply these presets first and further tweak exposure settings as necessary. These presets should be used for tonality and colour variations primarily, with further adjustments to take your photos even further!

These presets will still work with JPG photos, although RAW images are recommended, for even greater control.

What's included
There are 27 "looks" in this package, with each look also offering an (Auto) option that will attempt to correct any incorrect exposure settings automatically. Every photo is different, so further tweaking and experimentation may be needed. Continue reading for more information and visuals about each set of styles.

Fujifilm bonus!
As an added bonus for Fujifilm shooters, each of the looks is also available in Classic Chrome variation for that extra Fujifilm magic! (Raw photos only)
