Dark & Moody Presets

A gritty and dramatic photo catches your eye and stands out from the crowd, and when you’re looking for a way to stylize your images, a preset is a great place to start. Our Dark & Moody Lightroom Presets intelligently increase contrast, richen warmer shades, and mute colors while preserving skin tone. Plus they can be applied to a whole series of images, creating a cohesive style for your entire collection.

Dramatic Contrast

Increasing contrast is a bit trickier than moving a single slider. But our presets are designed to preserve highlights, lower midtones, and darken the shadows without crushing them. With a strong style comes a great responsibility to not overdo it.

Moody Atmosphere

A bright afternoon may be what you shot, but it may not be the look you’re going for. Watch your sunniest images take on a whole different feel with a click of a button.

Enhance your Subject

Drawing attention to your subject is a fundamental goal of almost any image, and our presets make that work easy. Strong vignetting and deep midtones add focus and depth to your image, enhancing your image’s focal point and drawing the viewer’s eye to your subject.

Richer Colors

Most of the presets in this pack warm your images by introducing oranges and reds. It’s subtle, but the effect is a dark and cozy vibe that invites a viewer to engage with your photo. A forest becomes a twilight meadow, a living room becomes a dim-lit lounge, all in a snap.

Preserve Skin Tones

Our Dark & Moody Lightroom presets do a lot of desaturating work, but don’t worry about your skin tones looking strange. The reds and oranges of your image will stay protected, helping your subjects remain natural despite the heavily stylized look.
