Discover Pre-Sets don't work for Lightroom Classic - only Lightroom CC

I clicked on a link in an email that Adobe sent about free pre-sets available through Discover.   When you click on the "Get Preset" link, it opens a new brower Tab, where you can click "Save Preset"..... but then nothing happens.    No file downloads.


I spent close to an hour chatting with an Adobe agent about this.     They were super helpful, but it boils down to that you have to install Lightroom CC in addition to your already installed Lightroom Classic.    The presets will Save to Lightroom CC under the "Yours category" , and then if you want to use them in Lightroom Classic, you have to Export them from there...... and then Import them into Lightroom Classic ?!?!     Make it make sense please Adobe!     That's crazy.


If you want to offer the presets that way, fine..... but PLEASE also offer a Download Preset button directly on the Discover articles that you send us, which we could immediately import into Lightroom Classic without needing 2 versions of Lightroom installed and a million extra steps.
