Great Sources for Additional Develop Presets

Adobe Lightroom Classic

There are many photographers and third party developers creating and sharing interesting and complex presets. Lightroom Exchange is an excellent location for finding third party plugins for Lightroom (many are free downloads some have a small cost, and some may only be for Mac, while others are Windows only). Click the link above go to Lightroom Exchange, or, in Lightroom, select File > Plug-in Manager, then click on Plug-in Exchange (lower left) to automatically be taken to the Lightroom Exchange site On the right, you can choose to search on all catigories of Lightroom plug-ins or simply the Develop Presets.

Jeff Tranberry from Adobe  blogged about presets that he has found and posted to the Lighroom Journal – an excellent resource!

Jack Davis has created over 190 free presets for Lightroom with onOne Software and several photographers also have presets for sale including (but certainly not limited to) Marcus Bell and Kevin Kubota.

Please feel free to share your resources for others!

    As always, greatly appreciate the help and comments.

    Mac OS 10.6.6 I erroneously imported a large group of Presets into my User folder instead of a named folder.. Created the named folder and again inported .. great! But, shift-click won’t select them all in the User folder for deletion. Only selecting each then Edit >delete works. Arduous, am I missing something??

    Thanks you,

      You can delete them from the Lightroom Presets folder (on your hard drive, not through LR) all at once. In LR, you’re correct, you can not shift click presets to delete.
