Instagram 2.x/3.x presets for Lightroom

A collection of creative Lightroom presets emulating look & feel of Instagram 2.x filters. All the presets are developed by digital imaging experts using GretagMacbeth colour matching techniques and optimised for using in sRGB colour space. 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.

Great presets. Excited to have them.
I don't use instagram anymore because of their new policy, but I can at least still have my favourite filters in Lightroom.

Agree with mk_photo in rating.

Here I'll try to judge the overall similarity of preset result to the original Instagram filter and the general attractiveness of the resulting picture (which is really personal thing).
