I did notice when I go to Lightroom/Preferences/Presets and click on Show Lightroom Develop Presets, it takes me to Library/ApplicationSupport/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings. Is this part of my problem?
Prior to LR 7.3, the location of develop presets was:
Starting at LR 7.3, the format of the presets changed from .lrtemplate to .xmp, and the location changed to:
The easiest way to get to the new location is via Preferences > Presets > Show Lightroom Develop Presets.
You tried copying the old-format (.lrtemplate) presets from the old location on the old computer to the new computer. There were almost certainly prefixed with "~~", indicating that LR had already converted them to the new .xmp format.
Instead, copy the new-format .xmp files from the new location on the old computer to the new location on the new computer:
The later is whee LR places the=m when you have it import them.
The 'store presets with catalog' preference option is your friend.
Got it!!! It took me a couple times before I completely got what you were saying. But now all presets are happily on my notebook computer. Still missing the bunch of presets that disappeared with the LR update a version or two ago but that's a different issue! Always something to take up hours of time we don't have. Thanks so much for your help!! Couldn't have done it without you.
Glad you got it sorted.
