Presets for speeding up your workflow

Tired of doing the same adjustments over and over again in Lightroom?

+PS Workflow Tools is a collection of handy tools for speeding up your workflow by shortening the time used for commonly used Lightroom editing tasks, as well as supplying an easier access in the form of presets to those more hidden functions in the Lightroom develop module.

With the Workflow Tools you can apply incremental adjustments to single images or whole series in one click or even let Lightroom do the job for you by applying any of these presets whilst importing your photos through the Lightroom import panel.

This is a useful time saving toolkit to use alongside any color treatment presets from our collections.
