Ow to use Lightroom and Photoshop Presets

Updated: May 18, 2018

First Download the presets on the website




I Get often questioned ow to use Presets or were they are in Lightroom and Photoshop so here a small blog about Lightroom and Photoshop Presets.

There are a lot of things to like about Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom but probably the most favorites are Develop settings.

In Lightroom you can only install one preset a time so it's no fun to install 50 presets there,

You need to find the map in Lightroom where you easy can copy paste your Presets, be sure to unzip them first. So follow these steps and that's it.


Open Lightroom and go to preferences

Click on Preferences




Click On show Lightroom Presets folder and there you are, open the Lightroom folder and inside you will find the folder with Develop Presets that's the folder to paste your Presets into. So now you done that restart Lightroom and you will find your Presets. So to use them just open a foto and scroll true your Presets for the best look and after you have to play a little bit with the exposure, shadows and highlights because every exposure is different.



To install presets in Photoshop


Cope your files in • Win(user)/Application Data/Adobe/Camera Raw/Settings • Mac(user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Camera Raw /Settings

C:Users-[user name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings


Make sure you only copy the preset files (.xmp) into the 'settings' folder and not the map because camera raw dont see maps only the xmp files


When you paste your unzipped files there you wild find them in the camera raw presets in Photoshop .If you only shoot in JPEG just open camera raw filter en go to presets there.


So i hope i make somse things clear and have fun
