Hi everyone , I have a big issues I hope you will be able to help me . I install lightroom and imported my old folders presets , till there no problems . But I realized I had so much folders with so much presets in the wrong folders . So I clean everything , create new folders , put each presets in there right folders (in windows).

 

Now my big problem is when I import the news folders , somehow lightroom remember the old folders and instead of importing the news folders it import old folders and It's a big mess .

 

To understand better , here an exemple I had 5 folders for "Urban night presets" , So I decide to create a folder name  "Urban - Night" and put all presets (my presets are in XMP) in it (with windows not in lightroom) . I zip my folders

I have lightroom10.1 and Camera Raw 13.1 , my presets are in xmp extensions .

LR calls the folders of presets shown in the Presets panel "groups".  A preset's group is stored in its .xmp file -- LR ignores the folders that presets are stored in. To create a new group, in the Presets panel right-click a preset and do Move, and in the Group dropdown, select New Group.  Then you can drag other presets into that group.  You can only drag one preset at a time.

If you have dozens of presets to reorganize and you already have them organized into folders on disk the way you like, you could check out the Fix Presets plugin.  But it's a little inconvenient to use.

I don't remember for sure.  When newer versions of LR import an old .lrtemplate, they will convert it to .xmp format, and I seem to recall that the newly created .xmp preset will be placed in a preset group named after the folder containingit.  But you'll have to try it.
