    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...

    ISO dependent preset generator

    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...

    Converting Lightroom Classic Preset to Profile: problem

    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...

    Develop module new LR Classic preset is a big failure for me

    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.

    Light room presets not working

    I have Lightroom Classic 8.3.1 on an iMac running MacOS Mojave 10.14.5. I can't get my presets to work and don't know how to start to trouble shoot this.

    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...

    Develop presets (user) stopped working

    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...

    Lightroom filter presets, accurate?

    Operating System: windows 10 Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom Classic CC I fear this might sound ignorant, but is there a better set of b&w filter presets than the stock ones that come from lightroom? My experience is they do not render a given image correctly...

    Contrastly BF Sale - worth it?

    Contrastly presets are on sale now for $US50 - claiming that it normally costs $740 (which I am not sure is actually true?). Is it worth it? The presets look great. I'm just wondering if this is in fact good value or what.
