I'm an amateur photographer who loves to take landscapes shots, preferring dark colors. Recently, I saw with this series of pictures on the Another Escape Instagram page:

example image 1 example image 2 example image 3

I don't know if the images use a bleach bypass effect, but I really want to know how to achieve this specific effect in my pictures (which are very similar in subject to these). I noticed this effect is very often used by photographers both on and off of Instagram, so I'm guessing it's not an Insta Filter.

How can I edit photos to add such an effect using Lightroom or Photoshop?

Lightroom has a "bleach bypass" effect preset , or at least it did at one time (I haven't looked for it lately). That might be a good place for you to start.
