I am a Lightroom Classic user and I am trying to download a free preset from Adobe but it insists on opening the Lightroom app rather than my version of Classic. Can I change which version it is trying to install the preset into?
Have you actually downloaded it yet? Is it in a ZIP file? Where have you stored the download?
To add a Develop Preset in Lightroom-Classic:
1) Start Lightroom-Classic
2) Select an image and edit in the Develop module.
3) Click the [+] on the header of the Preset panel.
4) Search in the Explorer window that opens and choose the Preset to install.
These are presets on the Adobe site. There is a button to 'Get Preset' which launches Lightrom CC, not Lightroom Classic which I use. There is no ability to download it directly.
Can you provide the link to the page where you're trying to download the preset from?
Checking this site link I think it is aimed directly at Lightroom-mobile users (not Lr-Classic).
If you accept that Lightroom-web opens (in the Broswer interface- not Lr on your computer!), then you will see photos from the link that are DNG files. These DNG files contain edits that can be used to 'Create' the Presets from those edits. I tried one download and cpuld not find it anywhere.
Looking at the presets in the link I am not sure it is worth the hassle! Edit how you like then save your edits as Presets.
Thanks Rob - I'm sure you are right about whether it's worth the hassle - no such thing as a free lunch!
As @Rob_Cullen has indicated the preset is intended and therefore only accessible in apps within the Lightroom cloud ecosystem. For example, when saved, it will appear in the Presets 'Yours' listing of Lightroom Desktop and mobile devices such as the iPhone, iPad, etc. However, since you don't appear to have access to Lightroom Desktop, then it's a case of finding someone who has and is chartible enough to share it with you. Hopefully, you'll find it atatched to this post.

Thanks Ian - I can see the Classy Deep Blue preset.
I do have access to Lightroom Desktop but for a host of reasons I have everything in Lightroom Classic only. As I said in my previous reply to Rob - no such thing as a free lunch! but I just wanted to have a look at it given it was touted by Adobe.
