Moving Lightroom presets from one laptop to another

I thought it was a simple case of copying the develop presets folder from one mac to another. But there's nothing in the Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom with any presets. A search across the Mac shows no matching profile names. I wondered if the cloud sync'd automatically but it hasn't yet.

 

I am wanting to transfer a combination of 3rd party presets and my user ones.

 

Googling suggests the preferences dialogue would show me where they are stored, but not in the latest Lightroom version.

 

I must be missing something really simple! 

 

help!
Paul

Please carify which desktop version of Lightroom you are using. Is it LrClassic or the cloud-centric Lightroom app? You've posted this question in the Lightroom ecosystem forum, which suggests you are referring to the cloud-centric Lightroom....and if that is the case there's no need to copy anything over from one system to another. Simply install and start Lightroom on the second system and everything should be automatically downloaded from your cloud-based central catalog, and this should include your presets.

Hi Jim, yes it's the cloud based one. I have left it running, and it's certainly managed to download/reference the 110k photos, but no presets yet. I guess i will leave it going... I can see on iOS devices the presets are there. This is Macbook Pro to a new MacBook Pro - so maybe it would be one of the last things to sync? Odd if so!

 

thanks
Paul
