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.

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!

    I don’t have the latest version of LR, when i got to the camera raw “settings” folder, it’s just blank and doesn’t have the “user presets” folder like it mentions in this video *cries*. I’ve been searching for hours on how to get these new presets i bought, into my LR and it seems near impossible! Plz help if you can! I have a windows 7

    Currently it looks like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my
    blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
