HOW TO INSTALL DESKTOP LIGHTROOM PRESET

As a Lightroom Presets seller I get lots of installation questions.

Therefore, I prepared a step-by-step tutorial on installing presets on both desktop and mobile.

Today we're figuring out Desktop Presets installment on Mac & Windows.

Let's get on with it!

FOR MAC:

There're two easy methods.

METHOD #1:

First of all, install Lightroom CC Desktop App if you haven't done it yet. You can do it on the official website of Adobe (https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic.html)
Now, make sure you downloaded presets I've sent you.
Find 'File' section in the upper left corner of the programm.
Choose 'Import Profiles & Presets'.
Select 'Edit' icon in the upper right corner and press the 'Presets' button in the lower right corner. A new window will open showing you all installed Presets.

   

METHOD #2:

Open Lightroom CC Desktop App.
Find 'Edit' icon in the upper right corner.
Choose 'Presets' Button in the lower right corner.
You'll see a new window showing all the presets you've already installed. Now you have to uncheck 'Hide Partially Compatible Presets'. To do so find 3 dots icon in the upper right corner and uncheck 'Hide Partially Compatible Presets'.
Select 'Import Presets'
Find Presets folder you've already dowloaded (don't forget to unzip). Select the entire folder and press 'Import'.

         

New Lightroom Presets will show up immediately. If not, restart the Lightroom Desktop App. 

FOR WINDOWS:

There are also two simple methods.

METHOD #1:

First of all, install Lightroom CC Desktop App if you haven't done it yet. You can do it on the official website of Adobe (https://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop-lightroom-classic.html)
Now, make sure you downloaded presets I've sent you.
Find 'Edit' section in the upper left corner of the programm.
Choose 'Preferences'.
Press the 'Show Lightroom Presets Folder'
In an open window, go to the 'Lightroom' folder and then to 'Develop Presets'. Find my downloaded presets on your computer and copy them to this folder ('Develop Presets')
New Lightroom Presets will show up immediately. If not, restart the Lightroom Desktop App.
