Installation Step By Step

Here’s the simple, no-BS way to get up and running.

  1. 1.Unzip the presets you downloaded to somewhere on your computer you can find (presumably done already if you’re reading this file)
  2. 2.Copy the Develop Presets to your Lightroom Develop Presets folder.
  3. 3.Copy the Local Adjustment Presets to your Lightroom Local Adjustment Presets folder.
  4. 4.Restart Lightroom and get busy.
  5. 5.DON’T FORGET TO BACKUP YOUR PRESETS! (seriously – you’ll be sad someday if you don’t)

Where Should You Put The Presets?


Lightroom’s folder structure looks like the above image, but will vary from system to system.

Mac OSX:
<your home folder>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Adobe \Lightroom\

Windows Vista and Win 7 (AppData is hidden by default):
<username>/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Lightroom/

Can’t find it? Open the LR preferences, head to “Presets”, and click on the “Show Lightroom Presets Folder” button.
