Great – you’ve taken a step towards reclaiming your time and purchased some of my presets. They are super easy to install – just follow this 6 step plan to install them:
1 – unzip your purchased Eddie’s presets folder. The folder will contain two sub-folders called ‘Presets’ and ‘Brushes’ as they need to be stored in different places.
2 – Open Lightroom and go to Preferences (under Lightroom tab on a mac and Edit tab on a PC)
3 – Click on ‘Show Lightroom Presets folder‘ as above
4 – Go to the ‘Develop Presets folder‘ and create a folder named ‘Eddie’s presets’ or the name of the collection you have purchased i.e.: ‘Eddie’s Essentials’
5 – Drag contents of the folder from no.1 into this new folder you have just created. Make sure you are only dragging the presets (marked .lrtemplate) not the brushes as well
6 – Restart Lightroom. Your presets are now installed!
1 – To install your brushes you need to again click on ‘Show Lightroom presets folder’ and open the folder called ‘Local Adjustment Presets‘
2 – Drag the brushes from the unzipped folder in the brushes section (from PRESETS no.1) into this folder.
3 – Restart Lightroom to see your brushes
