But I Hate AI!???
These day’s, with all of the “AI Editing” apps coming out, it’s common that I hear people say they don’t like AI or don’t want AI to edit their photos.
I totally understand, and agree to a point. However, the AI that is being used here isn’t editing your photos. The AI Portrait Masking introduced in Lightroom is simply doing the grunt work of selecting facial features for you. Nobody ever really liked that part and now that it’s done for us, we can get back to editing and being creative much faster.
Now, any AI presets do indeed do a little editing for you. However, you can easily adjust those settings to make them your own. It’s no different than using a preset before, except now the presets are just more accurate.

Is this Preset Pack New?
Yes. This preset pack is brand new as of October 18th, 2022. Before this time, Portrait AI Presets (where you can automatically select facial features) were not possible. Now with the release of Lightroom 12, we can quickly edit portraits.
Will these work for wildlife photos?
What Software / Versions will I need?
Lightroom Classic – You will need the subscription version of Lightroom Classic version 12 or higher (October 2022 Update or later).
Photoshop – You will need Photoshop 2023 /Camera Raw 15 (Oct 2022 Update).
Lightroom “Cloud” Desktop – You will need Lightroom “cloud” version 6 (October 2022 Update).
The video tutorials are done in Lightroom Classic. However the tools are exactly the same in Adobe Camera Raw in Photoshop and there is a video showing how to use them included. There are no videos demo’ing use in Lightroom “Cloud” version, though they work and operate just fine.
Is this Part of another course?
No. This is not part of another course or preset package.
I bought presets from you before. Are these the same?
No. These presets were NOT possible to create before October 2022. My older presets will still work just fine but they do not have the Portrait Adapative AI technology in them.
I have the Lightroom Masking Deep Dive. Is this similar?
No. The Masking Deep Dive teaches how to use the masking tools and also includes some Brush Presets. It is very different from this mini course and presets.
If I purchased the old presets or courses, do I get this for free?
No. This is a new product and not an update to any previous purchase.
Will these work on Mac and PC?
How many computers can I install these on?
How do I install the presets?
Why won't these work on older Perpetual versions of LR (Version 6, etc...)?
New Presets will not work in older versions. These legacy versions of Lightroom do not have the new features covered here.

★★★★★ “I purchased this morning and am already half way through. You weren’t kidding. Easy to watch. Easy to follow. And I’m seeing results in my own photos immediately. Thanks!” – Frank Palazzi
Your Instructor… Matt Kloskowski
“Good editing is where taste and skill meet”
Who Is Matt?
If I could sum myself up in to one sentence I’d say that I’m a guy who really loves to teach. When I think about what I enjoy most in this industry, it’s helping people learn about photography and photo editing.
I believe that successful photography (both in camera and after) is where taste and skill meet.
A lot of people don’t know this, but I don’t shoot professionally anymore. At all! I have ZERO ego attached to my photography which means I don’t have any trade secrets, and I hold ABSOLUTELY NOTHING back (because my job is to teach, not shoot).
Do I love the occasional compliment on my photography? Sure… who doesn’t? But what really keeps me going is when I hear success stories from people who have taken my courses. So hop on board, and I hope to hear from you soon!
