If you’re not familiar with presets, it’s basically a saved series of photo adjustments that you can then apply to any image. Kind of like actions in Photoshop.

In this post, I thought I would share with you the many places where you can get a ton of  free Lightroom presets to play with. But before I list them all, you’ll need to know how the install them. It’s actually pretty easy.

1- Put your downloaded presets in a folder somewhere on your computer (a place you’ll remember).
2- In Lightroom, right click on “user presets” in the Presets tab located on top left

3-You’ll be given 2 options: New Folder and Import. Feel free to create a new folder if you want. Once you’ve done that right click again on your folder and choose Import.
4- Select the presets from where you saved them in step 1.
5- You’re done! icon smile Top Free Lightroom Presets

    I am attempting to install LR presets but when I right-click on the User Presets, I am not getting the choices needed to install the presets. I am right clicking, but not getting anything to show (eg., Folder, Import)

    Any help?
