  • Right Click on the “User Presets” Panel and click “New Folder” this will help you organize your presets from different sets rather than add to a growing list
  • Create a folder name for your new presets.  This can be the name of the collection or create a “Favorite Lightroom Presets” folder.
  • Now that the folder is created you will need to import the new presets by right clicking on this newly created folder and selecting “Import“.
  • A box will appear asking you what files you wish to include.  You will need to locate the product folder you purchased and unzipped.  Only select the preset template files (lrtemplate).
