Lightroom Presets and the Develop Module
If you’ve been using Lightroom to enhance or edit your images, then you’ll probably be familiar with the Lightroom Develop module. This is where you can make an almost infinite level of adjustment to your photo’s. You can apply changes to the exposure, contrast, colour as well as many other settings. It gives a quick way of grading your images. These presets are the ones James Nader will use for some of his fashion clients.
Having applied your adjustment settings to an image you can save these settings to use again with other images. This is a Lightroom Preset. Once you’ve created a Preset, these adjustment settings are available to apply to other photos using the Lightroom Presets panel.

The latest Way to install in Lightroom CC – Lightroom Classic (Desktop)
Things have changed a little in the last few upgrades of Lightroom and installation can be tricky in past versions but the work around we have found without accessing the back end is easier as for some reason sone presets don’t appear. Try this method.
The process can be time-consuming but once they are in your Lightroom catalogue you will be fine. There are plenty of online tutorials. We can only offer the best suggestion as described by others, own experience and Adobe guidelines.
