Lightroom Classic – Using Presets when Importing

Adobe Lightroom Classic

To help minimize mistakes, set up your preferred settings for importing files in the Import dialog and then save them. For example, select your source on the left (select your device, navigate through connected drives, or use the arrow to select from common/recent locations). Then, select how Lightroom should import the files (Copy as DNG, Copy, Move or Add), and choose the options that make sense for your workflow on the right (File Handling, File Renaming, Destination etc.). When finished, at the bottom of the import window, click on the Import Preset drop down menu.

 Select “Save Current Settings as New Preset”, give it a name, and click Create. You can create as many different presets as you need for your workflows.
