The Easiest Way to Transform Your Travel Photography to a Professional Level
The simplified approach used by thousands of photographers like you to create stunning cityscapes
Let’s face it, learning the art of photography is not rocket science but, it is an ongoing process. It just takes time to learn and put all of the pieces together. There is no other way around it.
One of the most important and time-consuming pieces of the photography puzzle is photo editing.
The most frustrating part of learning photo editing is that it just takes too long before you can see results that you can be proud of. I know because I went through all of the hurdles myself.
Many beginners give up too quickly when they realize how much effort and time it takes to learn photo editing.
What if I told you that you could bypass most of the hurdles by learning only the essentials and produce stunning photographs in a matter of days instead of years?
Some time ago when I realized that I spent more time in front of the computer than actually taking photographs, I knew it was time to act.
The main motivation behind the Rapid Editing System was to demystify, simplify and streamline the process of photo editing by making it easier to learn and more efficient to use.
With the Rapid Editing System, you reverse the process of learning photo editing. First, you achieve results you can be proud of by learning only the essentials. Later, you master more advanced concepts by reverse engineering the system itself.
Why the Rapid Editing System?
- Accelerated Learning: Learn photo editing and photo processing fast

As a professional travel blogger and photographer, I'm required to edit large amounts of photos for public consumption. Viktor's Rapid Editing System has helped me to cut down on editing time and improve my workflow.
I use his Rapid Editing to quickly edit photos on the go and to bring new life into photos I thought were lost shots. The system is great for just about anybody, from the novice Lightroom user to the expert!
How the Rapid Editing System Works
The concept of the Rapid Editing System was born when I realized that 80% of my editing steps were identical for every photo and only 20% of my efforts were spent on what really mattered: making every photo unique.
When I automated that 80% by using two levels of preset editing, the entire process became rapid and simplified.
- Step 1 – By using the STYLE preset collection, you define the overall LOOK of the photograph
- Step 2 – By using the ADJUSTMENT presets from the TOOLKIT collection you fine-tune the photo.
- Step 3 – Save your editing steps as a Lightroom Editing Formula for future use or as the starting point for your own presets.
- Step 4 (Optional) – Dive deeper into the Lightroom Editing Panel to reverse engineer the editing steps and learn more advanced techniques.
Here’s what’s included in this download:
- 20 1-Click Lightroom STYLE presets (see reference guide below)
- 40 TOOLKIT adjustment presets
- “Reset All” preset that reverts your image to its original state
- Documentation and Installation Instructions
- Step by step tutorial on how to use Lightroom Rapid Editing System for Landscapes
- Source RAW photos used in the tutorial
What is the TOOLKIT?
Toolkit is the collection of adjustment presets that do not create any specific look in your photos but help you to customize the look produced by STYLE presets.
After you apply one of the STYLE Landscape presets and you see that the image is too dark or too bright, go to Lightroom Toolkit folder and apply Exposure (+) or Exposure (-) to give your photo right exposure. Same goes for Saturation, Contrast and Vignetting.
What is the Lightroom Editing Formula?
The Lightroom Editing Formula is the essential part of the Lightroom Rapid Editing System. The formula helps us to systematize the editing process and also let us share the editing steps with ease.
The Lightroom Editing Formula starts with the name of the STYLE preset and follows with the numbers inside the brackets, where each number represents a specific ADJUSTMENT preset from the TOOLKIT collection.
Gentle Wave (8, 17, 22, 32, 40)
The formula tell us that it takes 6 clicks in total to achive the final look. First you apply Gentle Wave preset from STYLE collection and then 8.Open Shadow++, 17.Clarity++, 22.Vibrance+++, 32. Vignetting++ and 40. Blue Sky Darker+++presets from TOOLKIT collection.
