If you follow along on social, you know I’ve been talking about this new collection of presets for a while! In the past few months, I’ve been refining and making this collection based on a recent trip to Mexico City to finalize the edits.
CDMX or Cuidad de México is one of my favorite destinations in the world. This last trip was spent exploring art galleries, neighborhoods, and restaurants. So this preset collection is focused on editing multiple types of photos — everything from city, food, interior, and portrait. It’s the first collection that is focused on giving photos more life through exposure, white balance, and warm hues. (Each of the presets is named after a neighborhood or area in CDMX as well!)
What are Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom Presets are almost identical to “filters” that you can use to edit a photo quickly in Adobe Lightroom. These presets are ones I’ve been using and developing over the past years. I create a preset when I edit a photo and then continue to refine the preset over time. What you see in the shop is a final version of a preset to be used on photos.
Who are Lightroom Presets for?
Lightroom Presets can be used by anyone — from experts to beginners, which is why they are so versatile for editing. There are both desktop and mobile presets available for sell which means you can edit your photos where you like. (P.s. Lightroom Mobile is free and our Mobile Presets include a step-by-step guide on how to get them on your phone!)
Why Lightroom Presets?
Lightroom Presets take out the guessing when it comes to editing photos. These presets are balanced, have the hues and luminance for the color panels set to create a certain feel for the photo. My favorite part is that presets make editing photos incredibly easy!
Here are a few before/afters edited with the new presets:

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
