Please note that the presets downloaded from Wowmystyle are compatible with Lightroom 4, 5, 6, CC, and Classic CC (not compatible with the Lightroom mobile apps) as well as the latest version of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).
Our preset Collections come bundled in a zip file. Simply unzip the file to a location you’ll remember such as your desktop or your downloads folder.
.lrtemplate or .xmp?
Once you’ve unzipped the file, you will notice there are two folders contained within the main Contrastly folder: lrtemplate, and xmp.
Historically, the .lrtemplate file format has been used by Adobe to store adjustments and settings that are readable by Lightroom. Since April 2018, Adobe has moved to another format called .xmp, which is also compatible with ACR.
We provide both the .lrtemplate and .xmp file formats so that our customers can install our presets in most versions of Lightroom & ACR.
How to install presets in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR)
Installation is rather easy: you just copy the *.xmp files (including the folder they come in) into the correct folder and relaunch Lightroom / Camera RAW.Follow the steps below:
For Windows the folder is:
- Open the path above,leave that window open and go to the location where you unzipped the presets zip file and open the xmp folder
- You will see a few xmp files, select all of them and hit ctrl+C to copy them
- Go back to the other window where you have the Settings folder open, and hit ctrl+V to paste all the files inside
- Now you have put all the preset files into the Settings folder
- Launch Photoshop, then ACR, and enjoy!
For Mac the folder is:
For Mac you need to locate the following folder (note that this is your user library, not the root level library and you may need to unhide it because on newer Macs it is hidden by default).
Note:Make sure you only copy the preset files (.xmp) into the Settings folder, specified above, as folders are not supported in Camera Raw. It’s important that you don’t add any other folders or files to the Settings folder.
