Installing your presets into Adobe Lightroom couldn't be easier. The instructions below show you how to properly install your presets ready to use. Whether you're using a Windows or a Mac, the instructions should be the same if you're using Adobe Lightroom versions 4, 5, 6, 7 & CC.


    1. Open Adobe Lightroom.

    2. At the top, go to ‘Edit’ then Preferences.

    3. In the options window, click on the ‘Presets’ tab at the top. Click on the button labelled ‘Show Lightroom Presets Folder’.

    4. Once in the Explorer/Finder window, make sure you in the ‘Lightroom’ folder, open the ‘Develop Presets’ folder.

    5. Now copy the whole presets folder which contains your presets into the ‘Develop Presets’ folder e.g. If you've downloaded preset packs from The Preset Factory, copy the whole folder that's name starts with ‘TPF - ...' . (Make sure you copy the folder within the zip file, and not the zip file itself.) 

    6. Once copied, close Adobe Lightroom.

    7. Re-open Adobe Lightroom and the presets folder will appear on the left once in the Develop Module.

    8. You are now ready to begin using your presets!
