This is the big list for free light presets for renders, available either on their own or as part of larger sets of free resources.

Light presets designed for Poser are often not compatible with Daz Studio. Light presets designed for Daz Studio 4 are often in a format that is not readable by Poser.

Note: Prop lamps, light bulbs, and similar should be listed on the Lamps, Lanterns, Candles, and Other Lights page. This is for light presets that change the hue and saturation of images rendered from a software scene. (Occasionally, freebie prop lights will have software lights; these would be listed on both pages.)
