This guide will show you how to install presets from The Preset Bay into Lightroom CC. Please make sure your Lightroom is up to date before installing Lightroom Presets. This guide works on both Windows and Mac devices.
Once your ZIP files has been downloaded, you will need to unzip the file. Once Unzipped, you will find three folders. “Desktop (Lrtemplate)”, “Desktop (XMP)” and “Mobile”. For this tutorial we will be using the XMP Files.
Launch Adobe Lightroom and Head on over to the “Adjustments Tab” (Usually located on the top right hand corner).
Once in the “Adjustments Tab” select presets (Usually located at the bottom of the Adjustments Panel).
On the “Presets Panel”, select the three dots “…” located on top of the “Presets Panel” and select “Import Presets”
Locate the Folder where you have downloaded the Presets and select the Desktop (XMP) folder. Select all the XMP files within the folder and select “Import”.
All your presets have been successfully imported. You can now find them located in the designated name under Presets. Note: If you have imported the Lrtemplate files instead, they will be located under “User Presets”. You can now proceed and apply the presets to your images
