Hey.

I am an amateur photographer, but I am looking for some filters for my interior real estate photography. I need the filters that can boost my photos, but not making them seems plastic. I heard about FixMyPhoto, but then read that they are not so good. So I am looking for something that someone used and they went well with his photos.

Thanks in advance.

To be honest, you'd be better off learning to edit the photos properly. Presets are like a foreign language phrase book, they'll only roughly fit the situation.

These flats looks almost the same every time. Can you then tell me what presets can fit my needs?

We have no idea what the pictures look like, nor what you'd like them to look like. So no, we can't tell you what presets will fit your needs. Even if we did know what you were looking for, we'd be telling you what sliders to move to get the results you're after, rather than presets.

I need presets for a person that can only choose preset, no editing skills

If your question is serious, you probably need to start before post processing. Real estate photography, especially interiors, is all about perspective and lighting; what lens to use when, how to modify and use light, etc. To a large degree if you get the image capture better you need less editing skills (you still need them, just you will be enhancing, not trying to create).

The person knows how to take photos. I am looking just for presets to enhance these photos. Any tips which popular presets pack can work well?

In Lightroom simply choose 'AUTO' in the Develop module. That is likely the best 'preset' for what you are trying to accomplish.

Since you are looking for a quick fix, I'd suggest playing around with some of the shooting modes on your camera. Those effectively are like presets. That means you could go directly to JPG and skip LR all together.

Sorry Venom. I was trying to help by suggesting there is likely other options other than presets. Not sure why you think that's the silver bullet for what you need.

On a number of Nikon cameras, there are Picture Controls as well as modes that may help.

Bro, I need filters to make things let`s say like this, more colors, more looking good, etc. Normal photo looked fuzzily.

I think you have received a lot of help. But your ears are closed.

Being married to a real estate agent, perhaps I can offer a different perspective.

Selling a house and staging a house require different skills. Usually these are not found in there same person. The same is true with Architectural photography. Again a different skill set. Having a camera on a phone does not make everyone a photographer.

You hire a building inspector and engineer to do the necessary inspections, why not hire a professional photographer to portray the client's home in the best photos?

Just as you should hire the expertise to properly stage a house for sale, you should also properly hire an architectural photographer with the experience INCLUDING Lightroom developing skills to do the job that you need done. It sounds from your reluctance to listen to the experts that you are not willing to spend the money to get the right people skills to maximize your sales. It is your clients that suffer the consequences.
