DOWNLOAD AND EXTRACT FILES

You’ll receive a download email with a download link. Already downloaded the product and can’t find it? Check your downloads folder. If you haven’t received your download email, please contact us at lanterpresets@gmail.com to check if we have your correct email address.

Once downloaded, make sure to back-up your purchase in a secure location. Next, you’ll need to unzip your file to access the contents.

PC: Right-click on the downloaded folder and then click “extract all”.  Some PC’s require an external program to unzip the file. We recommend downloading the free software 7-Zip.

Mac: Double-click on the downloaded folder and your computer will automatically extract all.

Save the extracted files in a documented location on your computer, like your desktop.

ACCESS LIGHTROOM FOR INSTALLATION

Open up Lightroom software, then go to

PC: Edit > Preferences.

Mac: Lightroom > Preferences.

Make sure the “store presets with this catalog” box is unchecked. Go to the “Presets” tab and click on the “Show Lightroom Presets Folder” button. That will open Adobe folders on your computer. Click to open the “Lightroom” folder. Then click to open the “Develop Presets” folder.

If you have not installed any presets you will only see a folder called “user presets”. If you have installed other presets in the past, you will see them listed here. Copy the presets that you downloaded and paste them into the “Develop Presets” folder. Brushes are installed in a different folder. They are installed in the "Local Adjustment Presets" folder (like the "Develop Presets" folder, this is also a sub-folder of Lightroom). 

CLOSE AND RE-OPEN LIGHTROOM

Now, completely close Lightroom. When you re-open Lightroom, your presets will be installed
