How are Presets and Profiles shared/synced among Lightroom Classic, Lightroom CC, and Photoshop?

Lightroom CC 1.3 and Lightroom Classic 7.3 were released on April 3, 2018, and changed how Edit/Develop presets and profiles are saved and stored.

Lightroom Classic 7.3 Shares Presets and Profiles with Photoshop

Lightroom Develop/Edit presets are now saved in the .xmp format that's compatible with Camera Raw in Photoshop, and Lightroom Classic and Photoshop (running Adobe Camera Raw 10.3 or later) share a common location for these presets, meaning that your preset collection will be the same in both apps.

On Mac, this folder is:

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

On Windows:


Your Prolost Presets will be available in Photoshop, and any presets you create will be available in both Photoshop and Lightroom Classic.

Lightroom CC Stores Presets and Profiles in your Local Library

Presets and profiles in Lightroom CC 1.3 and later are stored within your local Library (.lrlibrary) file, and should not be administered from outside the Lightroom CC app.
