Ricoh GR Presets Bundle

Do you have a Ricoh GR, GRII or GRIII and wish you could apply the built-in camera effects to your JPEG and RAW photos in Lightroom? Would you like to apply those effects to photos taken with other cameras, even smartphone photos? Now you can with our Ricoh GR Presets!

We’ve analyzed some of our favorite Ricoh GR effects and made presets that you can use in Lightroom on any photo! As a bonus, we’ve also included 3 presets that emulate the look of a printed photo. In total, you get 13 presets with 2 modifiers.

The Ricoh GR Preset Pack Includes:

Black and White (3 Presets)

  • Light
  • Medium
  • Dark

The Ricoh GR out of camera black and white effect is arguably the most pleasing black and white preset we’ve seen. This is often compared to the look of the much more expensive Leica Monochrom. This is suitable for a wide range of photos.

Hi-Contrast (4 Presets)

  • Grain and Sharpness,
  • No Grain and Sharpness
  • Less Contrast
  • Less Contrast, Less Grain

This high contrast black and white preset gives a dramatic look that’s reminiscent of black and white, high ISO film. Images with this preset applied look amazingly analog. Popular with many street photographers when the interplay of light and shadows is the top priority.

Positive Film (3 Presets)

A popular effect, this gives the look of old slide reversal film. With deep and saturated colors and an eye-pleasing color shift, this preset makes all of your new photos feel nostalgic. With this preset, colors are less accurate technically but can feel accurate emotionally. This effect gives images an instant classic look. If the purpose of your photography is to connect and move someone emotionally, this is the preset for you. Skin tones look alive. Perfect for portraits, lifestyle photos, and family photos.

Printed Photo (3 Presets)

This adds to the look of the positive film look, by lowering the overall brightness of the photo as if it were printed and scanned back in. If you take a look at old photos, the absolute white, is not nearly as bright as today’s screens. There’s a tendency for photographers to want to maximize dynamic range which leads to extremely bright whites and dark blacks. This is ok for some photos, but not all of them. This does the opposite of that. Sometimes you want the viewer’s eyes to relax so they can soak in the photo.

This preset decreases the maximum white level to something more similar to a print. This decreases eye fatigue and encourages longer viewing times. Sometimes, telling a good story is not about maximizing the amount of information you can include, it’s about simplifying and removing what isn’t important. This preset does that.
