Presets and Presetopia

The magic of LR is that once you've dialed in a "look" you like on any particular photo, that "look" can be saved as a preset and used on ANY photo you'd like from there. Though it my need some tweeking here and there as from from picutre to picture you'll find presets will save you buckets of time. Don't wanna go through the litany of creating you own preset? I HAVE YOUR SOLUTION : Presetopia

All images below are from the genius that is Spencer Boerup Photography located in Tucson. All these images were also doesed with the magic of presetopia. Pure awesome.
