How to Export Lightroom Presets

POST’s editors work hard to learn your preferences when you order Signature Correction, but even that has its limits. One way to help achieve a certain visual style is to have POST apply your own Lightroom preset before we begin the correction work.

First, of course, you need to have a preset set up in your own copy of Lightroom. Then you can easily export the preset and send it to POST for use in future jobs.

Here’s how:

  1. Open Lightroom and go to the Develop module.
  2. Expand the Presets pane on the left and locate the preset.
  3. Right-click the preset and choose Export.
  4. Give the preset file a descriptive name and save it to a convenient location like the Desktop.

The export creates a file with a “.lrtemplate” extension which can be emailed to POST. Be sure to include a note for us about the template’s purpose and use.
