Tutorial: How to import presets into Adobe Lightroom

Many people have asked me how to import the presets they download from presetsheaven.com into Adobe Lightroom. This video shows the simple steps that are needed to do this in Lightroom 2. Cheers. Depending on from where you download a preset, the file can be compressed into ex. .zip or .rar. All presets that are downloaded from presetsheaven.com needs to be extracted/unzipped before they can be imported into lightroom. A compressed file can contain more than one preset/file. This might be the case for you. Windows: If you’re on a newer version of Windows you simply double-click the file to extract the included files. MAC: Double-click the file to extract it Don’t know what a preset is? Check out my site www.presetsheaven.com and you’ll understand. Still have questions?

    Hi David,

    same version of LR and also running a mac: solution is clicking while holding down the ctrl button. It worked for me and hope it will for you too.
    all the best,

    Hi –

    Seems easy except there is no right click menu coming up if you do this in Lightroom 4 on a Mac – so how else can this be done if no menu shows?
