Use these beautiful summer presets for Lightroom on sunny photos of beaches and landscapes. I selected these based on colors, too. This means that you can expect rich lively hues for beaches, skies, greenery, oceans — and, more importantly, skin tones. We want to make sure that we look great in our summer photos.
I will also include a simple guide on how to tweak each preset. As we all know, not all photos are created equal. Think of this as a way to tailor fit the aesthetic to your unique photo. Don’t worry, the entire process is super quick and easy. Just check out our preset installation guide if you are new to Adobe Lightroom.
The presets I listed right below are free to use. So if you are using Lightroom mobile, which you can also download for free, you can quickly edit your shots without paying for anything. Go ahead and download as many as you want! I always recommend that you try several until you get the look that you are happy with.

Airy Summer | Free summer preset with soft tones
To get the most of that summer feel, Airy Summer adds a nice coating of warm hues. You also get rich colors, as you can see in the example above. Its vibrant aqua hues stand out, and they match the soft airy tones so well.
Summer Solace | Free summer preset with an analog film style
Summer Solace adds a charming analog film warmth to photos. See for yourself in the photo above. Not only does it brighten the image, but it also creates a classic warm overlay with aqua accents. This preset is just incredible at creating a bright, light, and cheerful feel.
