Lightroom 5 HDR Preset – Punchy HDR
Punchy HDR, is one of my most popular HDR presets (1000+ downloads a month) that I created for use in Lightroom 4. This preset has been revised and optimised for Lightroom 5 and is available for download. Its still free just as before!! The preset works best on RAW images as they contains most information in comparison to JPEG images. Check out the preview below of the Before & After.
Lightroom 5 HDR Preset – Afternoon
This was another preset I published earlier last month and its gaining popularity as well, so I’ve gone and redone the preset for Lightroom 5 as well.

- Switch to Develop Module and navigate to the Preset>User Presets in the left panel

Thanks for the kind words Melanie and Bobby. I’m glad you find them useful.
thank you so much
No worries. Feel free to share your photos here in the comments.
I love Punchy, I have used it on baby photos and it makes them look like those oil painting puzzles its amazing – I do not get this result on all photos it depends on where its taken.. anyway love it and thanks so much for letting us use it!
Thanks Cathy. I am glad you are enjoying the preset.
hey. thanks for your effort to make Presets. I am currently using Lightroom5 for Windows. and it seems not allowing me to import your HDR Preset.
Is it for Mac users? Cause I’ve added presets before. but this one isn’t allowing me.
How can I fix this problem?
Nothing particular to do with Mac vs Windows. You can just copy the preset file “.lrtemplate” into your “Develop Presets” folder typically found under “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets\User Presets” (for Windows 8 & 7)
Or just click the button in Lightroom under Edit > Preference > Presets, and select the desired folder “Develop Presets”
Ty, That was really helpful.
Im new in Lightroom, always use Element 8 until now. i already download this preset and make a little test, tremendous, congrats. its more easy to make my workflow. Thanks.
Thanks Renzo for the kind words, be sure to checkout my other presets also.
Gracias por compartir estos presets
Hi Harmeet, I have the same thing happened again yesterday, and I recommended Google will not let me download presets not do that bad ….
btw thanks for your quick response yesterday.
Great for your page.
it’s very awesome preset to create HDR images
Followed your instructions, however was not provided the link.
A few people have reported issue with the “Pay with a Like” feature, so I’ve removed it from this post. You should see the download links in the Download section.
I’ve tweeted about your presets but the download links weren’t revealed. My twitter name is Lucy Ricardo. 😉 Thank you!!
Sent you the download link, check your email.
I couldn’t get the link
Emailed you the link Kim. Enjoy!!
I know a really stupid question, but how do I use the HDR preset? Does it allow me to make an HDR out a stack of pictures that have diffrent exposures?
The HDR Preset is for Lightroom only and Lightroom doesn’t natively support merging multiple/stack of images (with different exposures). The Preset is ideal for single RAW image which will be processed using this Preset to give very HDR look. Check out my YouTube video below regarding installing and using this HDR Preset on your images.
