What is it?
It is simply the most and the best of Instagram presets for Lightroom. Probably you won’t be surprised if we tell you that Earlybird of Instagram v.1 and Earlybird of Instagram v.2/3 are two different filters though sharing the same name. This is also true for the rest of the filters. Well, at least for those survived the dramatic update which Instagram v.2 was.
Some people still love and remember old filters and believe they only had the true spirit of old-good Instagram. While some other people prefer new version for clarity and subtlety of such newly introduced filters as Amaro and Rise. And… there are also people who want to have the best of two worlds. If you are the one then we are proud to give you two collections together: Insta-1 and Insta-3 in one package. 35 filters of Instagram-1 and Instagram-2/3 for Adobe Lightroom. Buy it now to save $10.
Is it for RAW or for JPEG?
Originally these presets were designed for using with normally exposed jpeg/tiff/psd images. Of course, you can apply it to any of your RAW files but the result will be quite unpredictable due to differences in RAW formats which different camera manufacturers have. So we would recommend converting your RAW into picture format first before enjoying our presets.
