Windows Users

1. Download the .lrtemplate files in the designated folder on your computer. Your presets will arrive compressed into a zip file so you will need to unzip them. The presets will not install as a zip file.
2. In this folder you will find the presets, they are the files with the .lrtemplate extension
3. Open Lightroom 4-5.
4. Choose Edit>Preferences.
5. There will be a new window that appears. There will be several tabs at the top of the new window. Select the Presets tab.
6. Click on the button labeled Show Lightroom Presets Folder.
7. There will be a new Explorer window that appears. Choose the folder named Develop Presets. Copy the downloaded folder with your presets into the Develop Presets folder. It is recommended that you copy the preset folder to this new location rather than moving it from its original location.
