Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing where to store your Develop presets, part of Using Presets in Lightroom.
The folders that you see in your Presets panel and the Presets inside those folders…are stored by default in your operating system.…And Lightroom knows where that location is, so it knows where to look for those…presets when you want to apply them. Now, you do have the option to move that location.…Let's take a look at that option and what its implications are.…I'm going to go up to the Lightroom menu, that's the Edit menu on a PC, and choose Preferences.…And here in the Presets tab as we have seen, you have the option to go right to…your Lightroom Presets folder. And, as I have said, by default, that is a…location in your operating system. And because that is a central location for…light room, no matter how many catalogs you might make.…
All of those catalogs will be able to see and access your presets.…You won't have to do anything to cause that to happen.…But now let's say, there's another scenario.…Let's say that you like to keep your Lightroom catalog files on an external drive.…Because you travel from place to place and you use Lightroom with different computers.…
