It seems every time I post about Lightroom presets, I see a bunch of questions on how to install them. There’s actually several ways that you can get presets in to Lightroom. I think every person has a way that they like, but this is the method I’ve found that works reliably and is easy to follow. Even better though, I’ve included how to organize your presets. If you’re like me, the preset list gets pretty crazy and long if you start installing a lot of presets. So organizing them in to folders make ’em a lot easier to keep track of. Enjoy!
Installing Presets in Lightroom Classic CC
Can your Lightroom Presets also be installed in Adobe Camera Raw?
If you have the latest version (Photoshop 2019)
Will these preset work with lightroom CC
Matt I already bought from you a lot of presets but today when I updated my Lightroom CC clasic all of them disappear and when I try to see if I can import them the plus sign do not appear May you said me what to do. Where do Lightroom keep the presets? Thanks in advance
I have the latest version of Lightroom Classic CC. Right clicking in the list of presets no longer brings up the option to create a new folder. The only option that comes up is “Reset Hidden Presets.” How do I create a presets folder in Lightroom now?
Hi. When you create a new preset, it gives you that option.
Just got the preset bundle. Develop preset install ok. Brush install I do not see the numbered brush presets. they are in the local adjustment presets folder. What can I do?
Hi Dieter, the Brush presets need to be installed differently than the Develop module presets. If you look in the 1-Install-Video-Help folder you’ll see a video named Installing-Lightroom-Brushes.mp4 that explains how to install them. Thanks and please let me know if you have any trouble. Diana
Always have liked you’re work flow in Lightroom and Photo shop,
I just purchased the bundle, where do I go to download these?
Hi Matt the Iceland image is fantastic but i notice the version on squarespace is a lot better than than the one on instagram could you post a vid of how you processed it please i have been an admirer of your teaching for a while it started with the Layers book ,that really explained it,very clear no complicated jargon. Best Regards Rob (England)
Thanks Rob – I’ll see what I can do 🙂
Hi, I did all this and am familiar with how to add a preset. I dragged your template into the local adjustment preset, restarted and all and it isn’ working. I’m using the latest version of Lightroom. Any ideas?
Matt I dragged presets into the local adjustment folder but when I go to effects don’t see them. Although I see them in the folder. Restarted not there.
Love your class and work!!
Can lightroom presets be used with on1 raw 2017?
Hi Thomas – no, they can’t.
Do you know of a way to more quickly scroll through the brush presets? I have quite a few and it’s time consuming using the arrows on the screen to scroll? Thanks!!!
Nope. That’s the nature of the beast about having a lot of presets 🙂
Why won’t Adobe allow multi-level organization of develop presets? For example: I cannot have a preset folder say, for example, “Matt’s Presets” and then, inside that folder have a second level of folders entitled “Ultimate Fighter Look” and another titled “Wedding Glow” and other Matt’s “Black and White Presets”, etc. At the Adobe forum a group of users have been asking for this for several years and there’s been no response. It’s hard for me to image that it would be difficult to create it and just makes so much sense. It would be a real time-saver for those who have groups of presets from multiple different sources…
imposible to create a “black and white” subfolder in Matts preset folder.
moreover impossible to add tags/category “landscape”,… like on1 in lightroom
never understood why basic things like that take so much time to adobe to implement
