How to Install Lightroom Presets

Photo editing is definitely the icing on the cake, which turns good images into amazing. No matter how good the initial image you have taken is, there is usually a small or large detail that can be altered to take it your image to the next level.

There are many photo-editing programs and applications out there, but in my opinion, not one of them is able to surpass the editing that can be done with Adobe Lightroom {which exists as a mobile app as well}. All of the photographs shared on my blog, those I take for companies and brands, or those included in my photo albums, are all edited by the excellent Lightroom.

If you are currently reading this post, I imagine that you also agree with me that Lightroom can do magic!One of my favorite things about Lightroom is using the editing presets that shorten the time I spend editing photos {and believe me, as a blogger and brand photographer I already spend a lot of time editing!! 😅}.

Lightroom editing presets are basically pre-set editing settings for all or some of the software editing sliders. In other words, you can edit a photo in Lightroom, and then save the same settings with which the photo was edited as editing preset so you can edit more pictures with the same settings in the future.

Presets are amazing shortcuts! Their goal is to drastically reduce the amount of time we spend on editing our images, and they also allow us to maintain uniformity as we create a series of images.

As a photographer and Lightroom preset creator, I get a lot of questions about installing presets. This is why I decided to make a detailed guide where I explain step by step how to install Lightroom presets on both the app and the computer software.
