I shoot all my images on a Nikon 800 and process them in Lightroom. For those wishing to purchase my Lightroom presets click the button below.

Installing Lightroom CC Presets

Installing your Presets is easy. I’ve listed the steps listed below. If you have purchased the Cuba Gallery Lightroom Preset Pack these instructions will also be included in your digital download.
  1. First download the presets and unzip the files. Open either Lightroom 5, Lightroom 6 or Lightroom CC.
  2. For Apple Mac users click on ‘Lightroom’ in the top menu, then select ‘Preferences’ from the drop down menu. For PC users click on ‘Edit’ in the menu and select ‘Preferences’. On the Preferences screen there will be six tabs at the top, click on the tab that says ‘Presets’. Now click on the button that says ‘Show Lightroom Presets Folder'.
  3. In this window double click on the ‘Lightroom’ folder, then double click on the ‘Develop Presets’ folder. You can now copy your presets into the ‘Develop Presets’ folder. Finally restart Lightroom and the new presets will appear in ‘Develop’ mode in the left hand panel.
