Note: These are Luminar Neo presets only – they will not work in Luminar AI or any other Skylum software.

If you are looking for free presets for Luminar Neo, then you are in the right spot!

This post contains some of my favorite Luminar Neo presets, which are available for immediate, free download.

You can see before and afters of the presets in action below, and also read how to install the presets in Luminar Neo.

If you need photos to test these presets on, then you can download free RAW photos in the linked article. I also have a collection of free Capture One Styles and free Lightroom presets which I would recommend checking out.

There are also ten free sky overlays available for download. These are sky photos from my library and are available for you to use for non-commerical use only.

Luminar Neo Sky Overlays

You can use these skies from my library for any non-commerical or hobby uses. Add these skies to Luminar Neo following the instructions below, then you can use them to replace skies in your photos using the Sky AI feature.

Each of these skies is titled with the focal length used to take it, so you can more easily match up the replacement sky with an image of your own, as the most effective sky replacements use the same focal length as the original image.

So that you can see what each sky looks like, they are all applied to the same image below, taken at 24mm, with no further modifications.

      Have you tried opening Neo, then going to the File -> Add Luminar Neo Preset Collection and adding them that way, or is this what you are saying doesn’t work?
      It should also be possible to copy them into the folder “/Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Luminar Neo/Data/Presets/Users” (I think that is the correct file path). If you can’t see the library folder, then you can follow this guide.
