HOW TO INSTALL LIGHTROOM BRUSH PRESETS | LIGHTROOM BRUSHES | LIGHTROOM LOCAL ADJUSTMENT PRESETS

Instructions for Mac Users:

  1. Download the .lrtemplate files in the designated folder on your computer. Your presets will arrive compressed into a zip file so you will need to unzip them.  The presets will not install as a zip file.
  2. Once your file is unzipped.  Place the presets into the folder of your choice (I have a folder specifically for presets created).  This is also a good time to create a back-up copy of your presets and place them away for safe keeping. (We would recommend a cloud service such as Dropbox for securely backing up your files!)
  3. Open Lightroom, press the tab for the Develop Module.
  4. On your Lightroom Tool Bar (located at the very top) click Lightroom. A drop down menu will appear > click ‘Preferences’.
  5. There will be a new screen that pulls up.  There will be six tabs at the top, click on Presets (second tab from left).
  6. Click on the box titled, Show Lightroom Presets Folder.
  7. Double click on Lightroom.
  8. Next double click on Local Adjustment Presets Folder.
  9. Copy the contents of the “Local Adjustment Presets” Folder, found in your download, into the “Local Adjustment Presets” folder on your Computer.
  10. That’s it. You are done!

Note: If Lightroom was open when you copied the Lightroom Brush Presets, you will have to close Lightroom and restart it again.

Instructions for Windows / PC Users:

  1. Download the .lrtemplate files in the designated folder on your computer. Your presets will arrive compressed into a zip file so you will need to unzip them. The presets will not install as a zip file. Note: The presets are created on a MAC so once you unzip you may see an extra folder titled MAC_OSX. This folder is empty, please ignore. Also if you encounter an encryption error when the zip file is unpacking, click yes to save.
  2. Once your file is unzipped. Place the presets into the folder of your choice (I have a folder specifically for presets created). This is also a good time to create a back-up copy of your presets and place them away for safe keeping.
