Nicolesy Preset Installation Instructions

Lightroom

Installing Lightroom CC presets & profiles

These instructions show you how to install presets and profiles into Lightroom CC (.xmp or .zip files).

Note: The Presets panel is located at the bottom of the Edit section.

Next, click on the “…” drop down and select Import Presets.

Navigate to the Nicolesy preset pack and select it to import into Lightroom CC. You can either import the .xmp files, or use the the .zip file that was included with your download. Your presets/profiles will then install and can be located in either the Presets panel, or the Profile Browser.

Installing Lightroom CC Classic presets & profiles

These instructions show you how to install presets & profiles into Lightroom CC Classic (.xmp or .zip files).

First, open Lightroom and go to the Develop module. On the left, make sure you can see the Presets panel.

In the Presets panel, click on the  icon and select Import Presets.

SaveSave

Now, locate the .zip file for the Nicolesy Lightroom CC presets you downloaded from your order. Select this .zip file and click “Import”.

Now it’s time to locate the presets to make sure that they installed properly:

  • In some cases, you may need to quit and re-open Lightroom for the presets to appear.
  • If you followed the instructions properly but still don’t see your preset pack, it’s possible that they are located in the Profiles browser. (Some Nicolesy presets will not appear in the Presets panel.) To locate this, access the Basic panel in the Develop module, and click on the small grid next to “Profiles”. Scroll down to look for your new Nicolesy preset pack.

Still don't see your newly-installed preset pack?

It’s possible that the preset pack is hidden. Try this:

  1. Access the Presets panel in the Develop module
  2. Right-click over any preset pack and select “Manage Presets”
  3. Scroll through the list and see if the Nicolesy presets you just installed are there; place a check next to the box if they are hidden.

Another option is that the pack you installed contains Profiles, which are in a different location (not within the Presets panel). To look for these files, go into the Basic panel and click on the grid icon next to Profiles:

Installing Lightroom CS6 (and older) presets

This tutorial shows you how to install presets into older versions of Lightroom (CS6 and older; .lrtemplate files).

Please note that any new .xmp “Profile” presets will not install into ACR in CS6 and older. Only the CC versions of Photoshop (and Lightroom) will work with the Profile presets.

ON1 Photo RAW

Installing ON1 Photo RAW Presets (.ONPreset files)

These instructions show you how to install preset packs (.ONPreset files) into ON1 Photo RAW.

Next, right-click on the .ONPreset file and select the appropriate version of ON1 Photo you would like to install your presets into. This will likely be the most-recent version.

Note: Do not double-click the .ONPreset file; if you have older versions of ON1 Photo installed on your computer, it may install into one of those applications instead of the most current version.

ON1 will open and ask you if you would like to install these presets. Click Yes.

The files will install and let you know when it is finished click Close to proceed.
