I'm wasting eons of my life around my problems with Lightroom Classic and I'm really upset now. Dear English speaking people, please translate my message into English with www.deepl.com and answer me in English, I understand it very well. But I don't have the nerve to rack my brains even further and write in English now. I'm German, pay German money for these programs and I f*ck*ng want German language service for them. Sorry. I love you all, but please help me!

 

Klappte das Importieren von Presets (.lrtemplate) bisher (zuletzt Lightroom 4 auf meiner Arbeitsstelle) sehr problemlos mit Rechtsklick ins Vorgabenmenü -> Neuen Ordner erstellen -> Importieren, geht jetzt gar nichts mehr. Es gibt nur Fehlermeldungen. Ich sitze seit Stunden am Rechner und bekomme nur Fehlermeldungen: Fehler beim Import von XXX.lrtemplate - Die Vorgabe-Datei war der falsche Typ Vorgabe. Wenn ich einen Herd habe, will ich darauf die Mahlzeiten nach meinen Rezepten zubereiten. Und das klappt auch. Jetzt warten Tausende von Fotos auf meinem Rechner (Windows 10) darauf nach meinen gewählten Vorgaben bearbeitet zu werden und es klappt nicht! Ich habe schon kreuz und quer durch dieses Forum gelesen, aber noch keine Lösung gefunden. Die bisherigen Möglichkeiten funktionieren nicht mehr. Ich bin verzweifelt! Kann mir bitte jemand helfen?

Up to now, importing presets (.lrtemplate) (most recently Lightroom 4 on my workstation) was very easy by right-clicking in the preferences menu -> Create new folder -> Import. There are only error messages. I've been sitting at my computer for hours and only get error messages: Error when importing XXX.lrtemplate - The default file was the wrong type default. If I have a stove, I want to prepare the meals according to my recipes. And that works. Now I have thousands of photos on my computer (Windows 10) waiting to be edited according to my chosen settings and it doesn't work! I have read all over this forum, but have not found a solution yet. The previous options do not work anymore. I am desperate! Can someone please help me?

From the icon in your screen shot it looks like you have a fairly new version of Lightroom Classic (LrC), perhaps v9.3?

 

You are attempting to install .lrtemplate format preset files. Back at Lightroom Classic v7.3, Adobe changed over to .xmp preset file format. Any existing .lrtemplate format presets you may have previously installed in the earlier version, got converted at first new start.

 

When acquiring new presets, they should be in the .xmp format.

 

Questionable if you can import .lrtemplate files, maybe some you can, others you cannot.

Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

see: https://blog.thomasfitzgeraldphotography.com/blog/2018/4/managing-lightroom-presets-in-lightroom-cla...

 

Now in that  article,  towards the bottom, a solution  is to install and/or copy the .lrtemplate to the old folder location (shown  in  link) and than exit Lightroom Classic, and then restart Lightroom Classic, at that point the .lrtemplate preset will get converted.

Importing presets causes many users problems -- it's frustrating to all.  Initial troubleshooting steps:

 

1. Please copy/paste here the first ten lines from the menu command Help > System Info so we know precisely which version you're running.

 

2. It's not clear from your description exactly what steps you're taking to import the .lrtemplate file.  The only way to import an old-style .lrtemplate preset is by selecting a photo, going to Develop, clicking the "+" button in the Presets panel, and doing Import Presets:

Try doing those exact steps -- does it work?

 

3. If step 2 doesn't work, upload the .lrtemplate causing the problem to Dropbox or similar and post the sharing link here. We'll see if it imports into our LR correctly.

Lieben Dank für die Antwort und fürs Mitgefühl. Mit manchen Presets, neueren, die auch schon im .xmp Format vorliegen klappt es, mit denen, die nur im .lrtemplate Format vorliegen, nicht. Hatten Sie mein angehängtes Bild mit der Fehlermeldung gesehen? 

Dies sind die ersten 10 Zeilen der Systeminfo meiner Installation von Lightroom Classic:
