Q: What are Lightroom / Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) Presets?
They are pre-defined settings in the abovementioned programs (sliders, curves, and other numeric calibrations) designed to create a certain look / feel / color palette in the photos to which they are applied.
Q: How do I install them?
Super easily. First, download and unzip the presets. Next, copy the .xmp files into the following location >
For MAC OS: Users\YOUR NAME\Library\Application Support\Adobe\Camera Raw\Settings
For WINDOWS: Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings
*It doesn’t matter whether you use Lightroom or Camera Raw, the presets are all located in the same place. Unless you are using an outdated version of Lightroom (that may still use .lrtemplates) in which case, I highly recommend that you upgrade your Lightroom to the latest version. Our presets work best with Lightroom CC 1.3 / Classic CC 7.3 or newer.
Q: Can I use your presets on my phone?
Absolutely. My Mobile Lightroom Presets are provided as custom DNG files. So go ahead and load these directly into your Lightroom Mobile App, then copy and paste the settings onto other images to achieve the effect.
Q: Will my photos look amazing with just one click?
The best answer we can give here is: maybe. And any website that promises you more than that is unfortunately not telling you the whole truth. Because the reality is, we don’t know how you shoot your images. So if for example, you’re someone who likes to go full auto-mode while being trigger-happy with flashes, I’m afraid no preset in the world is going to save you.
On the other hand, if you know how to capture a decent photo – properly exposed, focused, and all the rest of it, my presets will do wonders for you. They’re an awesome starting point for the creation of moody tones and happy vibes. So it really depends on you. To learn more about unlocking the full potential of my presets, check out my Education page.
Q: Does it matter what brand / type of camera I use?
Nope, it’s all good. I’ve tested my presets effectively on almost all camera models and image profiles of the following major makers: Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, and Leica (DSLRs and Mirrorless both). So rest assured they’ll work on just about any color photo.
Q: How do I receive my products after purchase?
Following a successful transaction, automatically generated download links will be sent to the email address you entered at the payment step. If you chose to sign in with PayPal (optional), the links will be sent to the email address associated with your PayPal account. So make sure to check that address in order to receive your delivered presets.
