I have number of presets in Camera Raw that I use in PS compositing. However, I'd like to use some of them in Lightroom now for my photography. Is there a way to convert them? The Camera Raw presets are saved in an .xmp file, while the Lightroom preset have a .lrpreset extension. They have similar information, but the formatting is a bit different (the .xmp looks more like an XML file). Any ideas?
Im not sure of any automated options or if there is a script around but if you apply the preset in Camera Raw (Done Button) then update the Metadata and preview in Lightroom you can move to the Develop module and save the preset.
Thanks David, that worked. I had been using Save Image in Camera Raw and didn't know why the .xmp sidecar wasn't being saved. I do wish there was a more automated way to do this, but my searches have come up empty. Lightroom puts a, presumably, unique ID at the beginning of each preset that the Camera Raw versions don't have, and who knows where it's generated from.
