How to Install Lightroom Presets for desktop

With any older version of Lightroom, it is only a few steps from start to finish. Generally, you open up Lightroom, then go to Edit in the Windows version or the Lightroom dialogue in the Mac version. Look for Preferences and Presets. Click on the box titled “Show Lightroom Presets Folder,“ double-click on Lightroom, then double-click on “Develop Presets.” Copy the folder of your presets into the “Develop Presets” folder. After those steps, close and restart Lightroom. Presto! Your presets will be available in editing.

With the newest CC version of Lightroom, on any platform, look for the plus sign in the presets tab when in the Develop module of Edit. Then choose “Import Presets.”

If you have yet to see what advantages the CC versions of Adobe bring to photographers, take some time and check it out because of its a game-changer. The best part of what makes the CC versions of Adobe programs so good is that new advancements and updates are added to your program as soon as they become available so there is no need to buy a new version all you have to do is just update from the Adobe Creative Cloud. Another benefit of the Lightroom CC version is that the camera RAW files can be read as soon as Adobe adds them.

One of the great things about Lightroom mobile presets is that you can use them with the free version of the Lightroom mobile app. This lets you access the power of Lightroom without the cost or learning curve needed to master the Lightroom desktop app.
