    The Great Reinstall...

    Hi everyone, I am finally migrating over to a better system. I've been using a tiny NUC as a PC for the last 3.5yrs, and whilst I've enjoyed many features and perks it brought, it is just nowadays underpowered for many of the tasks I perform. I have a Legion 5 laptop coming tomorrow or Tuesday...

    Using Presets in Lightroom Classic

    I'm using v 10.2 and am wanting to explore how to install and use presets in this program. I don't use PhotoShop - just happy using Lightroom. I've seen a set of presets I wouldn't mind purchasing as I've been getting into still life photography using a Lightbox. I'm thinking purchasing presets...

    All My Presets Have Disappeared!

    All my presets were there. I was adding some more, and may have selected the wrong file, and they all disappeared. The default ones, user ones and others I had added. There is just a blank space there now. The locations where the presets are stored still show all the presets, they just don't...

    Develop module Query over preset storage change

    Hi all! In Lightroom preferences I have always had it set as 'store presets with this catalog'. I have quite a few develop presets - these are all stored in separate folders inside 'lightroom settings/settings'. Through the years I've done the various conversions to the latest updates and these...

    How can you delete or move User Presets?

    I have user presets that I can't delete or move. When I right click on one, the options are "Add to Favorites", "Apply on Import" or "Export". I even found the folder with the presets in Camera Raw/Settings and removed the folder. The presets are still there. I would like to consolidate them...

    I have imported a couple of user presets from Lightroom classic for use on the iPad. When multiple presets are applied on the iPad, they overwrite each other’s settings. For example, I can apply a vignette with one preset, then apply the second to apply Split toning, and the vignette is reset...

    can I modify my presets?

    I have a number of presets I would like to modify and save as new presets. I don't want to actually apply these presets now. LRC doesn't even let me modify the current preset (right-click image>export>specify the preset name) all options are greyed out.

    RAW file converted to black and white on import without instruction

    Question about Lightroom 5. I've been using this software for some time. It is too old to read the raw files (RAF) from my new Fuji camera so I use the Adobe converter to convert them to DNG and then import them into LR5. Yesterday I shot an event in raw + jpeg. I used the windows 10 photos app...

    Lr Classic now allows one to set defaults for cameras, and defaults specific to certain ISOs. Set up raw defaults To set up such a default one must create an iso dependent preset, and as of right now there is no Lr tool to do so, one must download the sample file and use a text editor to create...

    Understanding presets and 'custom' tone curves

    In an effort to understand how my favourite preset works in Lightroom Classic, I copied all of its settings manually and applied them to a virtual copy. The only problem is my photo looks completely different to what it does if I just apply the preset to the photo. The only difference I can...

    I'm trying to convert LR Classic presets to LR Classic profiles. I tried using the method of applying the preset in Photoshop CC Camera Raw filter and then saving as a profile from there, but for some reason, some of the presets I want to convert don't appear in Photoshop CC Camera Raw presets...

    When I apply a preset on import, why do I have to select each individual photo afterwards for it to apply?

    So I am importing a bunch of photos and applying a preset upon import. But for the preset to actually load and apply to the photos I have to click through each photo. Each time I move to the next photo it does indeed automatically apply the preset but only when that photo is selected. How can I...

    Today I updated to 9.2 release. I use for any camera model, more than five and every ISO a own RAW default. Not only changing ISO depended noise reduction but also exposure, contrast, tone curve and more. Anyone have a 'simple' solution to get my defaults back? Current plan is to check every...

    Converting Lightroom Presets to Profiles – Issue

    Have just come across a major issue here and so wonder if anybody has any ideas or suggestions (though I suspect this needs to be dealt with by Adobe. Julianne . . .?) First, the context: I happily use Profiles, especially the excellent Lutify.me packs, because they're fast and easy to apply...

    All my presets (LR classic 8.4.1) were organized in the past but for reasons that escape me, the user presets are now all in together with no folders or sub folders. I want to create some preset folders / groups to enable me to find them better. I am unable to find out how to do this. I would...

    Overriding exposure settings of a preset

    Hi all, I use a lot of presets in LR CC, and I sometimes go through several on a single image, to try to find the look I like best for this picture. This works great when the photo is properly exposed out of the camera, but when it isn't, I need to adjust the exposure each time after applying...

    I've been away from LR for a month or so, and when I returned my few Develop presets have stopped working; I can't say for certain but I believe I updated LR to the latest version after the last time I knew at least one of these presets worked. They are in the list of presets, but neither...

    Preset Organization

    How can I change the way Lightroom organizes the presets I've purchased? All files are located in one folder, and I don't have any trouble getting the presets to show up in Lighroom when I buy them. I just wish the folders they organized themselves into made more sense to my OCD self. I know I...
