Installing XMP Presets In Lightroom 2018, 7.3 Update Preset File Change

Last week we talked about Lightroom’s new update and what that meant for presets – A switch from .lrtemplate to XMP now means presets can be opened within Adobe Camera Raw &  Photoshop, which is fantastic. BUT while old .lrtemplate presets are auto converted, how do you install new .xmp presets made after the 7.3 update?

Here is a quick video tutorial walking you through how to install xmp preset in lightroom.

This applies to installing all develop presets 2018 for versions v7.3 and higher. We demonstated on a mac, but the steps would be more or less the exact same on a pc.

hey guys Ryan here at signature edits
00:02
and today I’m going to show you how to
00:03
install Lightroom XMP presets in version
00:06
7.3 and above so for those of you who
00:16
have updated to Lightroom version 7.3
00:18
and higher you’ll notice a big change in
00:20
the way that Lightroom handles preset
00:22
files previously any Lightroom presets
00:24
files you had ended in dot LR preset now
00:28
with this latest version of Lightroom
00:29
your presets now end in dot XMP what
00:33
does this mean
00:33
well basically Lightroom has changed the
00:36
file structure so that your presets in
00:38
Lightroom will also work in Adobe Camera
00:40
Raw and in Photoshop so it’s actually an
00:42
awesome feature but it does mean that
00:44
your presets are now kept in a different
00:46
place so previously if you wanted to
00:48
install your Lightroom presets you’d go
00:49
to Lightroom preferences show Lightroom
00:52
presets folder click inside of there and
00:55
you would drag your presets into the
00:57
appropriate folder so if I develop
00:58
presets I would drag them into here
01:00
however now that Lightroom has updated
01:03
their system we’re going to put our new
01:06
preset
01:07
however now that Lightroom has updated
01:09
we are now going to be putting our
01:11
presets in the Adobe Camera Raw folder
01:13
so to get there we’re going to click
01:15
Lightroom show Lightroom presets folder
01:17
and instead of hitting this Lightroom
01:20
box we are going to open up the Camera
01:22
Raw folder on a PC it’s going to be more
01:25
or less the same process the only
01:27
difference is it’ll look a little
01:28
different because you’re not navigating
01:29
in finder ok so once you’re there you’re
01:32
going to be dragging your new presets
01:33
into this settings folder so click in
01:35
there today I actually have a wedding
01:38
preset and a free raw file to practice
01:41
along with that I did in a recent
01:43
tutorial you can check that out if
01:44
you’re interested it’s called dark and
01:46
moody cloudy wedding ok so I’m just
01:48
going to drag that right over here into
01:50
where it says user presets now you can
01:52
create whatever folder you want I’m
01:54
going to drag that in there and then
01:57
quit Lightroom and reopen
02:06
now that I’ve reopened Lightroom I can
02:08
go down to my user presets and sure
02:11
enough there it is
02:12
dark and moody cloudy wedding alright so
02:15

That’s how to install XMP presets in Lightroom!

Lightroom changed their files from .lrtemplate to .xmp, so all new presets are now stored in the adobe camera raw settings folder as xmp files instead of .lrtemplate. Installation is similar to previously, except to install lightroom xmp develop presets you now have to move them into the adobe camera raw settings folder, rather than the previous lightroom presets folder!
