This week has been so exciting with the launch of my new JG Everyday Fix + Flair Presets! And I’ve loved seeing your before + after images!! Today I’m answering some common questions I’ve received about the presets. What are they? Do I need to know about photo editing? Who are these presets for?
If you want to know more about these presets or are curious if these presets are for you…keep reading!!
Q: What exactly is a preset?
Put simply: a preset is a file that allows you to fully edit a photo with just one click! It applies multiple fixes and edits to your photo at once–it’s like you have me there to edit your photos for you so you don’t have to know the ins-and-outs of editing apps! It is sort of similar to a filter, but much more powerful and with a lot of individual edits built into it (vs a filter, which sometimes just looks like a fait color painted over the whole photo).
A few more details for those who want it: The actual “preset” is a file that you will download to your phone and add to Lightroom Mobile, the app where you can use the preset. The file has a bunch of photo edits saved into it so you can make multiple edits easily at once to a photo just by clicking on the photo once you have downloaded and added it to the Lightroom app. They work on ALL phone platforms!
Q: I don’t know anything about presets. Is this for me??
YES! Presets (while they may sound super technical and unknown) are perfect for those who are completely unfamiliar with editing photos. All you need is the free LightRoom Mobile app (you can download it easily from the app store) and about 10 minutes to follow the step-by-step instructions to add them to your LightRoom app, and you’ll be ready to edit!! If you purchase my presets, you will be given detailed video and written instructions on how to download the app, add the presets, and use them with just one click!
Q: Do I have to know how to edit photos?
Nope! That’s the beauty of these presets!
The video and PDF included your purchase will help you learn a little more about LightRoom if you want to, but you don’t have to know anything about editing photos or about LightRoom!
Q: What do I get when I make this purchase?
You will get immediate access to my online classroom with an intro video, a PDF guide to the presets, and 11 preset files to download to your phone and add to LightRoom.
Q: Do I need a “fancy camera” to make these work?
No! These were designed with all iPhone photos– you do not need anything other than the free LightRoom mobile app and your phone camera (on any type of phone). They can be used on non iPhones as well!
Q: Do I have to re-purchase or upgrade these if I get a new phone?
No! These presets are yours forever–you can download the preset files on your new device when you upgrade, just like you download them after your initial purchase! These presets are truly a one-time purchase!
Q: Who are these presets ideal for?
Anyone! I built them specifically with mamas, small business owners, and influencers in mind, but they are for anyone who wants a quick and easy way to make their phone photos look beautiful with just one click!! Even if you consider yourself tech-challenged, you can easily get the hang of this!
Q: What if I need more help?
I am always available to my students via email to help with any further questions! In addition, all Fix+Flair Preset users will be added to my exclusive Facebook education group for Jill Gum Students, where I am active weekly!
Q: Are these for just iphones, or android/samsung also?
BOTH!!! The instructions are done using a iphone because that’s what I have, but I go through both safari and chrome and it should look similar on an android, and I can troubleshoot another phone type if needed!! You use the presets with an app called lightroom mobile, and it’s free on both platforms!
