Hi
I downloaded a set of presets the other day (from 'Optical Wander').
They are .xmp type files.
I have tried to import them within the develop module, in varios ways, having copied them to different folders, and it always comes up with 'The preset file was the wrong type of preset'
I use LR6
Do xmp files work with LR6, or am I limited to lrtemplate files?

Many thanks for any suggestions.

No, LR6 does not support presets in xmp format (this was introduced in Lightroom Classic, version 7.3). Yes, I believe LR6 is limited to the lrtemplate format.

Thank you so much for the swift reply, I really appreciate it.
I guess they can't be converted into the other format then?
