Installing A Preset
Installing a Lightroom preset is pretty much as easy as it is to download them. You only need to worry about the compatibility of the preset. All the old presets will work for new versions of Lightroom, however a preset made in Lightroom 3.0 will not be fully functional in Lightroom 2.0. Some missing features is advanced noise reduction and vignetting for example.
Many of our presets download in a .zip format. Simply double click, or right click and extract the file. Once finished extraction, simply double click the file and a dialogue box will appear for installation (below).
Select “install” and Lightroom takes care of everything for you! Simply visit your ‘Develop” module in Lightroom to play around with your newfound preset!
Creating Your Own Preset
Preset’s are simply a saved version of the current settings found in your ‘Develop’ module. Once you are satisfied with your current settings, press the small ‘+’ button next to the ‘Preset” title on the left hand column (below).
A dialogue box will appear where you are able to choose exactly which settings you would like saved. Some things may be image specific such as spot cloning, or perhaps a specific cropping, so make sure you take a look at what you want checked off.
