How to install desktop presets in Lightroom Classic

Installing presets on your computer is not that complicated. What you will need is a Lightroom subscription from Adobe and the presets files (xmp. files) that you will like to install.

First open Lightroom Classic on your computer and sign in. If it’s not on your computer already, go to your creative cloud and download it from there.

Select a photo and click on the “develop” module. Once there find the presets tab to the left and click on the “+” button, and then choose “import presets”.

Find the presets files that you want to import and click on “import”.

Your presets should now be ready to use. You’ll find them under the presets tab to the left in the program.

Once you have picked the preset you want for your photo, you have the option to go ahead and tweak the settings to perfectly match the edit you want, if you feel that that’s necessary.

Good luck with your presets!
