Luminar Tip: Combining Textures with Presets

Sometimes a texture by itself just isn't enough...

I admit that I have become a huge fan of presets over the last year or so.  Prior to that, I never used them, regardless of which product I was using.  I always wanted to build my photo from the ground up.  But first in Aurora HDR and then in Luminar, I have really integrated using presets into my workflow on literally every photo.

If you are interested, you can find all my preset packs right here.

Historically, when I would add a texture to a photo I would just add it, make a couple of minor adjustments, and call it "done".  But my love of presets has crept over into my use of textures and has resulted in me starting to combine them both on my textured images.  I believe the results are quite nice, but then again I'm a little biased.  :-)

Here's my latest video showing how I use both textures and presets to edit an image.  Take a look and let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!

In this video I demonstrate how I combine textures with presets to customize the look of the photo and create a more unique and artistic image. Dive in and let me know if you have any questions! Download a free trial of Luminar here:
