How to install your presets
If you were sent a file by EMAIL, skip the unzipping steps and follow methods 1 and 2 without unzipping the file.
As of June 2018, all presets on the site are formatted as .xmp files. Previously, presets were formatted as .lrtemplate files, but the latest updates to Adobe Lightroom and Camera Raw have resulted in a shift to the .xmp format.
There are two methods you can try in order to install your presets. If the first method doesn’t work, please revert to method 2.
Step 1. Download your .zip file purchased from the store (collection or single preset file).
Step 2. Unzip the file by double clicking it.
Step 3. Copy the file or files ending in .xmp
Step 4. Open a new finder window or click GO on the top menu bar of the finder application, and select “Home”.
Step 5. Navigate to your user name, then click through the following: LIBRARY > APPLICATION > SUPPORT > ADOBE > CAMERA RAW > SETTINGS
Step 6. Paste the presets into this folder
Step 7. Open or restart Lightroom if it’s already running. Your presets should be there!
Step 1. With Lightroom Open, navigate to the develop module
Step 2. On the menu on the left side of the screen you’ll find your presets panel with a small “+” icon. Click on that!
Step 3. With the file browser open, you can now search for your new preset files to wherever you downloaded them. Select the the presets for import one at a time.
Step 4. You may have to restart Lightroom if they don’t appear in the presets panel immediately.
