Video: lrtemplate to xmp preset installation tutorial – new lightroom update – LR CC Classic 2018
Hey Dan, Ryan here at Signature Edits and I'm going to show you how to install .lrtemplate inside the new version of Lightroom. The new version of Lightroom now uses XMP preset files, and the reason they've done that is because they wanted to make it compatible with Adobe raw and across different applications. The only problem with that is the old preset files – LR templates – they've moved the location for where you need to install those. So let me show you how to do it first we're going to open up Lightroom at classic CC or Lightroom cc if that's what you're using and then we're going to go up to Lightroom preferences show other Lightroom presets if you hit this show develop presets button instead it's going to take you to where they now have the dot XMP presets stored so we don't want to do that we hit show other Lightroom presets that's going to take us to our old folder under Lightroom and we're going to open up this develop presets and inside you'll see that I've got my various presets I'm going to open up the user presets folder for now and I'm just going to install let's go with this one orange and teal vibes a free preset that we give out on our site I'm going to drag that from wherever it is right into my user presets okay now you can see that in these presets here there are these tilde signs that means that Lightroom has already automatically gone through and converted those to XMP and then when it does that it puts the Tilda's in front whereas our new preset that we just dragged in here doesn't have it yet so when I close Lightroom and I reopen it it'll take 20 30 seconds maybe and you'll see that it starts converting the preset to XMP you'll get a little dialog that says yes we've converted it and it should be available so I'm going to go to the develop module and just chill for a second let there you go all develop presets were successfully converted to dot XMP files so now if I go to my develop and go under user presets I'll be able to see my orange and teal vibes preset that I've just added in now obviously it doesn't work with this particular photo but that is how you install dot el our template presets inside the new version of Lightroom and if you want to you can go and double check go into show Lightroom develop presets and under our user presets we're going to now have our teal vibes preset that has been converted alright I hope this was helpful and I will see you in the next one take care.
