The Kubota Lightroom Presets: Vintage Delish is a set of Adobe Lightroom presets that give you a head start on your post processing workflow from within Lightroom. What are Lightroom presets? They are a mechanism from within Lightroom that allow you to apply many changes to a photograph from a single click.

In the case of Vintage Delish, they are a set of recipes to attain a specific look to a photo. What is nice is that with presets, you can choose a particular look and then tweak them to your own special taste much in the way of adding or limiting some spices in a recipe. The Vintage Delish is a group of 42 recipes that were developed by Kevin Kubota.

Who is Kevin Kubota and what makes his actions so special? Well first off he was named one of the top ten wedding photographers of 2007 by Popular Photography Magazine for giving his customers more than they expect by capturing fresh, expressive images. He has now taken that philosophy to Photoshop and Lightroom processing by providing the same techniques to you via his Lightroom Presets.

The Vintage Delish set is a set of 42 presets that create a “modern retro” look to your images. They recreate a nostalgic look at feel that goes back 100 years and will transport your photos giving them a fashionable historic appeal of days gone by.

The Kubota Lightroom Presets: Vintage Delish includes color-toned black & whites, faded antique effects, burnt & rusty colors, touches of grain, softening and glowing, deep, bold vignettes, warming tones, funky cross process styling, And many other creative surprises as well.

The presets are very easy to install and very easy to use. Keep in mind that this a download only product so once you get your download you just install the presets using the installer provided. Then you take your image and process it as you normally would.

Then from the develop panel all you have to do is access the preset panel expand the KIT Vintage Delish bar. Here you will find the 42 presets. If you highlight a preset, you will see the effect that it will have in the preview screen. When you double click the preset, it will apply the preset.

From there you can just go on with your regular output workflow, you can also apply other presets, or you can further treat the one you applied using the controls on the develop panel giving you literally an endless set of options to work with.

If you are a professional photographer, especially one who does weddings, portraits, or graduations, you really owe it to yourself to check into the, or any of the Kubota products for the photographer. There is even a Vintage Delish Before and After Gallery that will give you an idea of some of the effects that can be obtained from this package.

At only $39.00, the Kubota Lightroom Presets: Vintage Delish is very affordable and it will allow you to get a lot of productivity with the least amount of effort. I highly recommend this product.

    For me personally, these presets were overpriced and ultimately not very useable. I would not recommend these at their current pricing of about 40usd. At 15usd I believe they become worth it. Many of the presets are quite similar and thus it’s a bit misleading to suggest you get 42 presets, closer to 30. Just my two cents though.
