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.

These .xmp files may be "creative profiles" rather than presets. So check Develop's profile browser to see if that's where they're appearing: https://www.lightroomqueen.com/camera-profiles/

 

If there's not showing up in the profile browser, attach one of the .xmp files to your reply here and we can verify that it's not a problem with the file itself. To attach a file here: After posting the reply, click More > Edit Reply at the bottom of the reply. Then click the little paperclip icon in the lower-left corner of the reply box. Then click Apply Edits.

I looked in the profiles and they weren't there either. Here's one of the .xmp files.

Hi there,

 

We are sorry about the experience with Lightroom Classic.

 

Are you trying to check for the Presets in the Develop module with a RAW file selected? Please go to the Preferences for Lightroom, then Presets and check the option to Show Partially Compatible Develop Presets and then relaunch Lightroom to check if that helps. 

 

Regards,

Nikunj

And you have clicked on the + symbol in the preset panel, selected Manage, and turned on visibility of any that exist but not showing up?

By the + symbol I'm, assuming you mean this one:Screen Shot 2019-12-18 at 7.21.31 PM.png

Cause if you do I can't actually click on it, do you know why this is?

Try this first -- it's easy and a likely cause.

I had the exact same issue after reinstalling lightroom classic on a new computer and copying over the presets. Your solution of importing a photo first worked! Suddenly all my presets, favorites, etc appear. Thanks
