Presets not showing up in the Lightroom Classic after import

I'm running lightroom classic 9.1 release on macOS mojave.

Today I downloaded some presets, they were in .xmp format.

I firstly tried to move them to the settings folder in the CameraRaw folder and restart LR but they didn't show up.

I then tried to import them by going to File > import develop profiles and presets > selecting all my .xmp files and restarting LR. They still didn't show.

I then tried to reset all the presets by going to Preferences > presets > clicking all the restore options and then repeating the import steps but a message popped up telling me the presets were already imported.

I then uninstalled LR, making sure not to save any preferences and deleting any files related to LR and reinstalling it. I tried importing the presets again but the same message appeared telling me they were already imported.

The last thing I did was again try to manually move the .xmp files to the settings folder in the CameraRaw folder but they still didn't show up.

I'm following the correct steps for preset installation but they just won't show up.

 

Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks to everyone for replying so quickly.

It seems that when I imported and image this caused all of the presets to appear.

Apologies to everyone if this seemed like an obvious solution, I have been using light room CC up until now so I am still familiarising myself with the classic version.

Glad you got it resolved.

 

"It seems that when I imported an image this caused all of the presets to appear."

 

Normally, presets will appear in the Presets panel whether or not any image is selected and displaying in Develop.  It's a minor bug if they weren't showing up on an empty catalog.

 

There's another minor bug where the Presets panel's "+" button is greyed out and unclickable if you don't have an image selected, which is probably why you couldn't click it.
