  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Somehow I seemed to have lost all my presets.
How do I get them back ?
I backup my Catalog to an external harddrive about every two weeks and have several of these backups on the external harddrive.
Some help please
Thanks.

Thanks Johan,
I don't know what I did. One day they were there and next time I wanted to use them they were not on the left panel of the Develope Mode. Don't know where they have gone..

Just for clarity, do you see the standard Adobe presets or are you saying that you don't see ANY presets? If the latter, do you see the Presets Panel?

But if you do see the Adobe presets, but not your own, try toggling the "Store Presets with this catalog" option on the Preferences>Presets tab.

If you do not see any presets at all, and not even the Presets heading, then you have hidden the panel. Right-click on an empty area of another panel name. That will bring up a contextual menu where you can toggle the visibility of individual panels.

Thanks Jim, found them by toggling as you suggested. LR is sometimes a strange beast.
