Installation instructions:


01 Start by processing your order through the shopping cart system. Remember there is no cost to you but you do have to process the order. The presets are contained in a single compressed.ZIP file which will be downloaded to your computer. You will need to expand or decompress this file before you can use them.


02 Windows users should right-click the file and choose Expand All from the pop-up menu, Mac users just need to double-click the file to expand it. Choose where you want the decompressed files to be saved and then click OK to complete the process. You will now have a folder called "BPT_Lightroom3-Presets" containing a bunch of .lrtemplate files.


03 Next you will need to move (or copy) the BPT_Presets folder to the directory where Lightroom Develop Presets are stored. This is different for Windows and Mac users. Here are the locations for Win7 and Mac OSX:

  • Win7 - c:Users-[username]-AppData-Roaming-Adobe-Lightroom-Develop Presets (you may need todisplay the hidden system files on you machine so you can see the AppData folder. Search for the Folder Options dialogue and select the "Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives" option the the Advanced Settings sections of the View Tab.
  • MacOSX -[username]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom


04 Restart Lightroom to register the new presets. Now, select an image and click on the Develop module heading. Next, display the new presets by clicking the sideways facing arrow on the left of the BPT Presets entry in the Presets panel on the left of the workspace. To use simply, click on an entry to apply the development settings to the selected image.


05 If you don't want to install all of the presets in a separate folder and, you want a simpler install process, then right-click on the User Presets area and choose Import from the pop-up menu. Navigate to the BPT Presets folder on you computer and select the preset to be added to Lightroom. Click the Import button. Multiple presets can be imported in one step by multi-selecting the entries before clicking the Import button.

PLEASE NOTE: Our presets have been tested on Lightroom version 3 and also note that though we have tested these presets and the installation instructions listed here we hold no responsibility for loss or damage of your data brought about by incorrect usage of these assets.
