Installing presets in Lightroom CC

With the addition of Lightroom CC to the Adobe Lightroom lineup, there has been some confusion regarding presets, brushes, and the installation process.

In 2017, Adobe released a condensed version of Lightroom that we are now calling Lightroom CC. It has a desktop based version, mobile version, and web version, making it easy to sync and edit your photos across multiple devices.

While Lightroom CC might not be as powerful as the Classic version of Lightroom, you can still install and use our presets with this version. Although, there is currently no ability to install brush files into CC as of now.

But, even with the differences, installing presets in Lightroom CC is very simple!


Step 1: Open your Lightroom CC app and click on any photo to open your editor.


Step 2: Click on the editing icon in the app in the top right corner of your editing panel


Step 3: Once your menu open, scroll down to the bottom and click on the 'presets' button


Step 4: Once your preset menu is open, click on the 3 dot icon at the top to open a scroll down menu. Select 'import presets'


Step 5: Find your unzipped preset folder and copy/paste into your Lightroom folder that you have opened. Once transferred, the presets should show up right away. If not, re-start Lightroom and they will be installed!

All of our Lightroom Presets are compatible with Lightroom CC.
