Did it twice, worked both times. You aren't doing something correctly when it doesn't work.Also simply it has to work. All you are doing is loading a bunch of settings into ACR, just like if you started out in ACR, and then Saving those settings as a Preset which in ACR creates a XMP file.I even looked at both videos and did it both ways, Save Settings from the menu and Create Preset using the icon at the bottom of the ACR window.

"You can’t import the old format [.lrtemplate]" For future reference, for LR 7.2 or later: To import old-format .lrtemplate presets, click the "+" button at the top right of the Presets panel and do Import Presets, or right-click the preset group User Presets (or another non-built-in preset group) and do Import. Note that the menu command File > Import Develop Profiles And Presets won't import old-format .lrtemplate presets. (Just another LR inconsistency.)

I do as instructed in your post and all my presets are in the Develop Presets folder as lrtemplate. See screenshots. However, when I restart my computer, they aren't transferred to the new extension. What am I doing wrong?"

 

When a version of LR later than 7.2 starts (including LR 10), it looks for old-format .lrtemplate presets in the Develop Presets folder and converts them to new-format .xmp presets in a new Settings folder. The easiest way to find that new folder is by doing Preferences > Presets > Show Lightroom Develop Presets, which will open File Explorer or Finder on that folder.

 

Note that the old .lrtemplate presets in the old Develop Presets folder will be renamed to start with "~~" to indicate they've been converted.

 

When you start LR 10 and edit a photo in Develop, do you not see your presets?  Click the + button in the upper-right corner of the Presets panel and do Manage Presets.  Check the boxes next to all the preset groups to make sure they're visible.

 

If you don't see your presets in the Presets panel, do Show Lightroom Develop Presets and show us a screenshot of the contents of the Settings folder.

Sorry... but still the same question about importing lrtempate presents. I read this thread but still cannot understand how to import new lrtempate presets i got from ViewBug community.
I'm using LR Classic 10.1.1. In Presets panel, I clicked on Import... in Presets panel, select a preset from my folder (not zip)

With LrC shutdown, use File Explorer to copy the .lrtemplate files into-

C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets\User Presets

A restart of LrC will convert and copy the presets as .XMP files to the 'new' location shared with Camera Raw.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.

The error message is, "The preset file was the wrong type of preset". This indicates that the .lrtemplate file is not a Develop preset but another kind of preset, most likely a local-adjustment preset that appears in the Effect menu for local adjustments (Graduated Filter, Radial Filter, Adjustment Brush). 

 

You can easily check the type of the .lrtemplate. Open it in a text editor (e.g. Notepad or TextEdit) and look for one these lines:

 

type = "LocalizedAdjustmentPreset",

type = "Develop",

 

If indeed it's a local-adjustment preset, then to install it, click Preferences > Presets > Show All Other Lightroom Presets. That will open File Explorer / Finder on the "Lightroom" folder, and put the .lrtemplate file into the "Local Adjustment Presets" subfolder.

Thanks, but...

crs:PresetType="Normal" is the only mention of 'type' in these lrtempate files. So I guess this is Develop preset.

Open  the .lrtemplate file in a text editor and copy and paste its entire contents here.

ok, i undertand now... it's XMP format, which for some reason has .lrtemplate file extension. Hence, LR does not understand it. After i renamed the file with correct file extension - xmp - LR imported it without problems.

Glad you got it resolved.  LR's error message is more than a little unhelpful in this case.
