A little more retro, fun, warm and experimental than our previous mobile presets, the new Appalachia Mobile Presets V2 are also still offer versatile, timeless tones. These were built specifically for LightRoom CC Mobile. We took all the aspects of our latest LightRoom and ACR for desktop presets and emulated their characteristics to work on your favorite mobile images. To built those for desktop, which opened us up to build these mobile presets, we applied our 8 plus years of experience shooting in all sorts of conditions and locations ranging from the North Carolina mountains to the cliff-sides in Maine to the gritty streets of New York City to the coast of Oregon and to the cascades in Washington. We’ve spent the last 9 months tirelessly refinding these mobile presets and we so excited to be finally releasing them into the world!
With our previous mobile presets, we wanted to them encompass an everlasting quality. One inspired by the Appalachian mountains that we adore and admire and that have stood the test of time. We took that mindset and brought that into the development of these new presets, but added a little bit of the Appalachian charm. We imagined what the film images found in old cabins, alongside overgrown hiking trails and washed up on the mossy rocks at the bottom of a waterfall might look and feel like.
When we built these, we wanted something that would be consistent with our images we were editing in LightRoom on our computers, no matter where we shot yet stayed true to the environment we were shooting in. As with any preset, these are not a magic fix, but they are our starting point for each and every photo we edit. If not with just simply applying the preset, then within a few tweaks, we are able to achieve our desired look almost every time.
