The Dawn Collection Presets for Lightroom/ACR


The Dawn Collection is a preset pack by Click Pro Meg Loeks. Featuring 16 color presets and 4 stackable overlays, the collection transforms images into dynamic, polished art. From moody Dutch Masters light to harsh, midday sun the presets dramatically enhance light and give images depth. The colors are earthy and rich yet works to correct and warm skin tones. The Everyday preset is just as it implies, a clean edit designed for everyday use. Golden Hour Classic works best on golden hour images, Dutch Masters Warm works best on indoor low light images, Moody High Noon works best on high noon images, and so forth. The Dawn Collection also features 4 stackable overlays designed to dramatize skies, enhance golden hour and isolate your subject. Designed for use with RAW files only.

●Lightroom lrtemplate Presets – for Lightroom 5, 6, Classic CC up to 7.2, & CC desktop
●Lightroom XMP Presets – for Lightroom Classic 7.3 above, will work in ACR too!
IMPORTANT: It is very, very beneficial to use the right files for the right version of software. If you have a newer, updated version of Lightroom Classic, please use the xmp files and not the older lrtemplate files. Newer xmp presets will look slightly different from older lrtemplate presets because of newer improved profiles and features.

    One of thr Best Preset Bundles Ever

    Posted by Shay Cronin on 1st Nov 2019

    I am always hesitant buying presets - I actually stopped buying them completely (its been over a year or 2). However, when I saw the presets Meg came out with I knew I would love them. They fit with my work so well and love using them to speed up my client galleries!!! Well worth it!

    The Dawn Collection

    Posted by Amanda L. on 22nd Oct 2019

    I wanted to badly to love these. I love Megs editing style, and while I wasn’t expecting these to copy her style at all, I was hoping they would at least give me a jumping off point. But, the majority of these have a tint to them and it makes people’s skin color so off. Then the layering presets (haze, sky) keep moving to all around sometimes to spots where I can’t even grab the filter to move them where I want them. I basically use only the Everyday and Glow...which are so basic I could have created those myself. I’m just bummed and was looking for something more than a couple of halfway decent basics.

    Works just ok

    Posted by Natalie on 15th Oct 2019

    I bought this set after watching the preview video and was very excited to use it for those times I edit solely in Lightroom. Everything was easy to set up and install and the presets work but don't expect to be able to use them quickly. I don't usually use presets so maybe this is just an issue of me expecting something else. I find that most of these don't look that great on my images, certainly not as shown in the video. I end up having to do a lot of adjusting. It's not a huge problem but I wouldn't purchase again. That being said, I do like the stackable's that are included. They work well, although it is just as easy to add a gradient or radial filter on my own.

    My go to Presets!

    Posted by Beth Colinsworth on 14th Oct 2019

    Though all the preset collections that I have purchased from Clickinmoms are exceptional, this set is the one I go back to the most. I love how they don't drastically change my image... they enhance it 'just right'. Thank you for this wonderful set of presets!

    I am in LOVE!

    I have been trying to move more of my workflow over to Lightroom, but I'm much more well versed in PS. These actions have been perfect for both using right out of the box, and for picking apart to learn how to achieve certain effects in Lightroom. I have owned these for about a month and they have really sped up my workflow and enabled me to edit a session start to finish in LR rather than taking them into photoshop.

    Don't do it!

    Posted by Steve on 5th Oct 2019

    I pretty much agree with the other sub 3 star reviews on this. I really wanted to love them, but I just can't. Colors are nice, but for $65 I would expect the same quality as something from DVLOP or Rook and Rover. Haze magically appears out of the side when you put it on a portrait shot (not the top). I really wanted to love them!

    I adore these presets!

    Posted by Megan Arndt on 2nd Oct 2019

    Although I am not usually a preset user, I use the Dawn Presets all the time! They are great for taking a SOOC image and transforming it into a work of art. I use the "Dutch Masters Warm" all the time indoors, and I am obsessed with “Haze” and “Dramatic Sky” for my outdoor images. I love how easy they are to use as-is or to tweak to make them perfect for each of my images.

    Not what I expected

    Posted by Kelli on 1st Oct 2019

    I have followed Meg for a long time and absolutely love her photography. I don’t typically buy presets but was really hopeful that these would help create the look of her photos. I was wrong. As much as I wanted to love these I hate them. I have tried on indoor, outdoor, and many different lighting situations and I feel it doesn’t do much for the photos at all. I’m very disappointed, especially after spending so much.
