HELP! I am beyond frustrated... I purchased Lightroom CC in December, and also a group of presets (Jack Olson). I have very clear, and what seems to be,easy instructions to install the presets.
PROBLEM: first thing to install is to go to “preferences“ in LRcc, and then go to “presets”.
I have NO presets option! I‘be been at this for two months- searcging web for answers. I am so frustrated. Will anyone please help me??! I’m going bonkers...
That's because the instructions are for Lightroom Classic CC, or for earlier versions of Lightroom. Adobe has caused a lot of confusion by naming the new cloud version of Lightroom the way they did.
Okay- thank you. What do I do now? Do I need to buy a different version of Lightroom? Ugggghhh...
I can't really advise you on that. Are you happy with Lightroom CC? Are you familiar with the two different versions that are available? Do you know what the difference is between the two? Have you had a previous version?
Here is a link that sort of points out the differences between the two versions. There is also a video that talks about the differences. Everything in the video is true, but having watched the video I must say that is definitely slanted towards encouraging you to embrace Lightroom CC. It looks great, but I haven't chosen to go that way personally. Look carefully and choose carefully. There are many features not available in Lightroom CC at this time. I'm not suggesting that you not Stay with Lightroom CC. I'm just suggesting that you need to fully understand what it is that you have.
Hi I have LR CC ... do you have instruction for PC uploads?
It works exactly the same way in Windows 10. I have done it.
Thank you Jim Hess! So I got the "presets" to load in LR CC but they appear to be individual filters? Each one is a singular color... Blue tone, Purple tone, Monotone...etc etc. I think I was expecting to see the ones that downloaded "Summer Presets", Fall Presets" etc etc. Did yours upload in LR CC this way?
This is a really old post, but maybe someone will see this. I am having the same problem you just described (the presets uploaded individually). Did you ever figure out how to correct this? If so, I am all ears.
From what I have learned-
If Presets appear in 'Groups' in the Preset panels it is because the Preset.XMP has a 'Group' name defined within the .xmp file. You can move presets from Group to Group by a [Right-Click] for the menu option 'Move to Group...' if you wish to re-arrange.
Also the Preset Name in the Preset panel can be different to the Filename on the Hard-drive. The name in the panel is also defined by information contained within the XMP file.
