Download Older Lightroom Versions

If you have older versions of Lightroom, you can download my older Eric Kim Chroma Kyoto JPEG Presets 2017 and Eric Kim Lightroom Presets 2017.

How to use the presets

My recommendation: Play around with the presets (on both RAW or JPEG files) and find a look that is 80% “good enough” to you. Then, edit the presets, remix them, and make them your own.

What are my favorite presets?

  • For RICOH GR II RAW files, use the “ERIC KIM MONOCHROME 1600” preset.
  • For JPEG color photos, use Eric Kim Color 1600 v10

How to install presets

  1. Open up Lightroom
  2. Go in the “Develop” module (hotkey “D”)
  3. Under the “Presets” drop-down menu (bottom-left) right-click (or on Mac, control+click) and click “Import…” and then select your presets from your “Downloads” folder
  4. Apply to your image
