Thank you so much for choosing Wilde Presets and supporting our small business! We hope you love the presets!
The desktop files are located in the zip folder on your download page. Download the zip file to your computer and once downloaded, be sure to unzip the folder! To unzip the folder on a Windows computer, right click on the zip file and click "extract".
If you’re using a newer version of Lightroom, you’ll import the xmp files. To import the files, open up a photo in Lightroom, visit the “develop” module (where you edit your photos), and then click the + symbol in the presets panel to import them.
For older versions of Lightroom, you’ll import the lrtemplate files using the below steps:
1. Go to “Lightroom” in your main menu and click “Preferences”
2. Click on “Show All Other Lightroom Presets” in the “Preferences“ Menu
3. Paste the preset folder containing the .Irtemplate files into Lightroom > Develop Presets & restart Lightroom.
Please note, we make our presets for both, JPG and RAW shooters. Because of this, we slightly adjust temperature to help give those shooting in JPG (photographers and non-photographers alike), more of a “base”. If you are editing in RAW, you’ll want to toggle the preset’s white balance from “custom” to “as shot” so that it’s not predetermining your temperature setting — and to avoid having to do that every time, we recommend clicking “update current settings” on the preset once you make the change so that it stays that way.
Each preset has been handcrafted with love and care by a professional photographer + skilled retoucher to look great with a wide variety of images. However, please keep in mind that results may vary depending on the lighting, tones, and settings of the original photo as each photo carries its own unique settings. After applying a preset, you may find that some minor adjustments are needed.
Please keep in mind, the photos you are editing have a lot to do with the outcome of an edited photo when using a preset as each original photo is unique and carries different settings.
That said, while we do our best to ensure that our presets work perfectly with a wide variety of images (and they do!), it’s impossible to predetermine the perfect settings for every single photo — especially if the lighting in your photo is exceptionally dark, light, or warm.
We recommend taking a look at our Adjustment Guides which cover simple adjustments that you can (and should) make when using presets to make your photo edits even stronger. We cover skin tones, exposure, and much more.
Enjoy & Happy Editing!!
