Why Do LR3 Presets Revert the Develop Panel to the LR3 Version?

Mar 11, 2012 10:42 PM

Tags: #mac #lr4

When I run a preset that I made in LR3.6, the develop Basic panel reverts to the LR3 version. Clicking on "Reset" restores the LR4 version, but undoes what the preset was supposed to do, of course.

 

How can I make my LR3 presets work in LR4?

    You'll need to edit the PV of the preset. If you had the PV 2010 as a sub-selection then your image got converted to PV 2010. Older presets don't automatically work in PV 2012 unless you edit them.

    PV = Process Version...PV 2010 is differnet (in a lot of way) than PV 2012 (current).

    Further - having the same values will very likely give you substantially different visual results with the new process version.

    I was having the same problem and found this http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/   (google is your friend)

     

    You just run your LR3 preset, then change the process version to 2012, and it will try to recreate similar values in the new settings.  Then just right click on your preset (or create a new one) and update preset with these settings.  It is time consuming, but at least you only have to do it once.
