Every product that we sell comes with an installation guide or a usage guide in a PDF format. Presets, however, do not come with an executable install file (*.exe) but instead they come in LRTEMPLATE format and they are compatible for both Windows and macOS operating system.

This guide will work with any preset that you buy from our website, our partners’ and literally any preset shop that sells Lightroom presets.
