Adding your new lightroom presets & brushes

Great – you’ve taken a step towards reclaiming your time and purchased some of my presets. They are super easy to install:


Lightroom Version 10 – any preset files ending .xmp use the ‘Import Develop Profiles and Presets’ as below. ALWAYS restart Lightroom once followed these instructions! }



1 – To install your brushes into Lightroom Version 10 you need to click on ‘Show other Lightroom presets folder’  in the Preferences > Presets tab. Open the folder ‘Lightroom’ then the folder called ‘Local Adjustment Presets

2 – Drag the brushes from the unzipped folder in the brushes section into this folder.

3 – Restart Lightroom to see your brushes

Extra Note: you can ALSO drag and drop onto the Lightroom logo on your dock for your presets to be installed OR create a presets folder in Lightroom and ctrl-click IMPORT but following the above instructions will keep them organised.


FOR ANY .lrtemplate PRESET files follow instructions below

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!
