*Important* Brushes get installed into a different folder than presents
Step 1: Receive Your Download Email
Immediately after your purchase, you will receive a download email. If you haven’t received this email, check your spam folder and add us as a safe sender. If you still can’t find it, please reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There may be a problem with the email that you originally provided.
Step 1.1: Download right at checkout
Immediately after your purchase, you will be prompt with a confirmation page where you can download your file. I suggest you download the file immediately and back it up for future references.
Step 2: Download the Presets
Your download will contain a zipped file. Back-up this file for future reference. Each purchase comes with one unique (expirable) download URL. Can’t find your downloaded file? Downloaded files are often found in the downloads file on your hard drive.
Step 3: Unzip the Files
If you have a PC: Right-click on the downloaded folder and then click “extract all”. If you have an Apple Mac: Double-click on the downloaded folder and your computer will automatically extract all.
Save the extracted files in a documented location on your computer.
Step 4: Open the Presets Folder in Lightroom
With Lightroom open, go to:
If you have a PC: Edit > Preferences. If you have a MAC: Lightroom > Preferences.
This will open a new window. In this window, you will see a tab labeled “store presets with this catalog”. Make sure this is unchecked.
Go to the “Presets” tab and click on the “Show Lightroom Presets Folder” button. That will open Adobe folders on your computer.
Click to open the “Lightroom” folder. Then click to open the “develop presets” folder.
Step 5: Paste in the Presets
If you have not installed any presets you will only see a folder called “user presets”. If you have installed other presets in the past, you will see them listed here. Copy the presets that you downloaded in step 2 and paste them into the “develop presets” folder.
Step 6: Close and Re-Open Lightroom
Now, completely close Lightroom. When you re-open Lightroom, your presets will be installed.
Step 7: Start Using the Presets
To access your presets, go to the develop module and you will see them on the left-hand side. Click on the name of any preset to apply it to your photo.
That’s it! Enjoy your preset!
