Re-Organizing Your Lightroom Presets

ph4Lightroom is one of the best design software editing packages for photographers. It has a dedicated folder where presets are stored and which is “creatively” named “Develop Presets”.

Lightroom comes with a selection of Develop Presets, and you can create presets as many as you want. You can re-organize your Adobe Lightroom presets in different ways if you just duplicate them.

Before you started re-organizing your presets, I strongly recommend that you make sure you backup your original presets.

To back up your presets, below are the steps on how to do it:

First, open Lightroom – > Go to the Develop Module – > Right click of one of your presets – > Select “Show in Explorer” – > then, the stored folder where the preset are will open up – > Select the “Develop Presets” folder – > Right click and choose copy – > Now, paste the folder on your hard drive to back it up.

After your preset are backed up, you can now finally re-organize your presets within Lightroom by dragging presets into new folders you create.

Just open the “Lightroom” – > Go to the Develop Module – >Right click one of your presets – > Select “Show in Explorer” – > then, the stored folder where the preset are will open up – > go back to the Lightroom and close it down – > Move one step back in the hierarchy and begin to rearrange your presets.

Now, when you reopen Lightroom, the presets will be re-organized just the way you want.

With a little thought and planning, you will be able to organize your Lightroom presets for more efficiency.

Yepey! You can now re-organize your Lightroom 6 presets. Enjoy and have fun of it.

Here are some helpful tip to make good Adobe Lightroom presets:

  • Basic Lightroom preset adjustments – increased color exposure, contrast, brightness and saturation.
