    Lightroom 5 catalog. Retrieving user presets and plug-ins.


      Got a new Macbook Pro, and all my data from my old Macbook is on my new hard-drive. I transferred my old Lightroom 5 catalog on my new Macbook and when I tried to open it, none of my User Presets nor Plug-ins such as; VSCO were there. How can I get these back? Thanks

          Presets are found in your user Library folder. You'll need to open Finder, and click Go, then hold down the Option key to enable "Library" in the menu. Click Library, then follow the path:


          /users/yourname/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/


          Within this folder, you'll find subfolders with all your presets and templates. Copying folder by folder is the best way to make sure you get everything you need. Make sure you keep the presets and templates within the exact same folders on the new machine.


          Plugins are best migrated by re-installing.
