    HI folks,

    I'm looking to speed things up. Time is proving way too short to learn to photograph and learn the tools, etc... I still want to learn, but there are things that can be done with LR and PS that will take me years.

    So, I was wondering if there are LR presets that some of you have found especially good in capabilities. The SLRLounge presets look very good, but maybe they're as time consuming to learn ad LR itself. Maybe some are better with OM-D RAW files than other...

    Looking for input. I'm sure there are some losers and some winners out there.

    Not using an OMD, but have been using the SLR Lounge presets for a few iterations now. I enjoy them for quick edits, or to get a feel of where things are going. Honestly though, I think I prefer the previous version to the current (V6 over 2015 version). I do find them to be a bit heavy handed in the sharpening department, which is easy to correct.

    I'd also suggest taking a look at things like Nik Software and MacPhun plugins. Though not as fast as presets, you get a bit more bang for your buck with plugins imo.

    These high contrast and "HDR" presets are interesting. There are more on this website. Sometimes I apply these B&W presets and then select color.

    An interesting set of vintage film presets here. When I'm in that kind of mood, these work for me.

    And last but not least, an exhaustive set of Kodachrome presets:

    I agree with @Repp@Repp , the film emulations on Silver Effects Pro and Tonality Pro are not bad at all.
