Installing Prolost Profiles for Lightroom Classic 7.3 or Later

And Photoshop too, while we're at it.

 Prolost Profiles appear in the Profiles browser introduced in Lightroom Classic 7.3.

Prolost Profiles appear in the Profiles browser introduced in Lightroom Classic 7.3.

This installation process involves copying folders of presets into a specific folder on your system drive. We’ll start by locating the folder we're copying to.

On Mac, this folder is:

~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

On Windows:

C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings

On Mac, you may need to press ⌘ + G and paste the above path into the Go To sheet, as the Library folder may not be visible.

Now we'll copy the profiles:

  • Decompress the zip file you downloaded from the Prolost Store.
  • In the folder that appears, locate the For Lr Classic & Photoshop folder.
  • Within that folder you will see the profile files that end with .xmp.
  • Select all of these .xmp files and copy them to the Settings folder you located above.
