The world of film Lightroom presets is an abundant one – you can choose from the wide variety of presets that are out there built by photographers from all over, varying in tones, grain, adjustments capabilities, and more.

Thankfully, several outlets and artists have gone on to provide free starter film presets to help get you going while you experiment with your style. We’ve compiled a set of the best free film Lightroom presets below!
