    Moving Presets from a PC to a Mac

    meredithj86128865

      Good Afternoon,

       

      I am switching from a PC to a Mac and I am trying to put my information from one computer to another.  I have been able to transfer my catalog over, but my presets didn't transfer like I thought I would.  I learning how to navigate my Mac and I am hoping to find a simple solution to fix this problem.

       

      Thank you!

          Hi meredithj86128865,

           

          Sorry that your Lightroom presets did not migrate to your Mac. Which version of Lightroom are you using?

           

          Could you please check for your presets in the below location on your PC?

           

          (.lrtemplate) Presets or templates in the .lrtemplate format are stored at: /Users/[user name]/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/[preset or template folder]/[preset or template filename.lrtemplate]

           

          (XMP) Beginning with Lightroom Classic CC v7.3, the existing presets in the.lrtemplate format are automatically converted to a new XMP preset format. After conversion, the new XMP presets are saved at: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

           

          (Presets stored with the catalog): If you've enabled the Store Presets With This Catalog option in the Lightroom Classic preferences, the presets and templates files are saved at: MacHD/[catalog location]/[catalog folder name]/Lightroom Settings/Settings

           

          If you have your presets available on your PC, we can simply copy them over to the new Mac computer. You may also take a look at this article for more info https://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-move-lightroom-to-new-computer/

           

          Thanks,

          Akash

            I have reviewed the article suggested and I apologize that I am not sure how to perform your suggestions.  I am also having trouble connecting my images to my catalog.  Is there a way to connect them?  Is there a person I could chat with about my transfer?  Thank you.
