How to Use Free Lightroom Preset

My free Lightroom presets work with images in different formats (RAW, JPEG, PNG, TIFF…). But I highly recommend using a RAW format, which offers the most flexibility and produces the highest quality.
If you need RAW images to practice Lightroom preset based editing, please visit my free library of RAW images. Fee free to download and use them for practice: Free RAW Photos for Editing
I used landscape image in RAW format.
Let me show you how I use preset based editing. I call it Lightroom Rapid Editing.
First, I applied the Dark and Moody preset.
In general, I liked what I saw, but since the original photo was slightly overexposed, the result was too bright, and I needed the help of TOOLKIT presets to fix it.
The TOOLKIT is the collection of Adjustment Presets. The presets allow fine-tuning of a photo without altering the style and Lightroom editing tools.
You can download the TOOLKIT Adjustment Presets, which is part of my free Travel Preset Collection, here: Free Travel Preset Collection
Next, I used the TOOLKIT.
I applied the following adjustments:
09. Open Shadows ++
32. Vignetting ++
44. Midtone Contrast +++
The Editing Formula: Dark & Moody (9, 32, 44)
And here is the final result:
