Soda Pop Shop - How to Use Your PresetsFollow
Soda Pop Shop presets were designed with bloggers and social media influencers in mind. These presets work for photos taken with both a professional camera and a mobile device, such as an iPhone or Android. Pulling from the latest trends and success stories among leading influencers, these presets set your photos apart by creating a unified "look" between photos, while at the same time enhancing your image.
Soda Pop Shop presets were designed for fast one-touch full-edit results, but there are some small adjustments that you can make to enhance your edits. These are as simple as adjusting your image exposure (if the image is too dark or too bright), and adjusting or automating your white balance to get those tones nice and even before applying your desired preset (if the image skews too blue/yellow).
Not sure where to locate exposure, white balance, and presets in different versions of Lightroom? Here's a basic breakdown:
Exposure is found under the Basic panel in Lightroom Classic, and the Light menu in Lightroom CC/Mobile.
White Balance is found under the Basic panel in Lightroom Classic, and the Color menu in Lightroom CC/Mobile.
Presets are found in the left-hand panel in Lightroom Classic's Develop mode, and the Preset menu in Lightroom CC/Mobile toolbar.
Once you are familiar with the location of these settings and your presets, you can edit in seconds. View our sample workflow below:
