"I'm quite pleased with this collection. I own presets from several other companies and these are my new favorites! Well done." - John R.

Check Your Compatibility

Our products require you to have access to the paid or free software that facilitates the use of our products. As many photo-editing products have changed naming conventions over the years, it's always helpful to be able to get an exact year or version number to be sure of compatibility before you purchase new editing resources.

Determining Compatibility
Want to know if you can use our products in your software, but confused about software information and version history? In your Adobe editing software you can typically navigate to Help > System Info... for exact version info! 

Our products are fully compatible with the most recent Adobe Creative Cloud software - So, if you're paying a monthly subscription you will have the largest selection of compatible products to choose from! We recommend keeping your software up-to-date via Help > Updates!

I edit on a desktop or laptop computer - which presets will work for me? 

I have a subscription to Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, or Photoshop

Have an Adobe Creative Cloud Subscription to Lightroom (CC), Lightroom Classic, or Photoshop on your computer? All of our Lightroom Preset collections should work for you! 

Minimum Version Requirements:

  • Lightroom Classic v13+

  • Lightroom (CC) v7+

  • Photoshop (ACR) v14+

NOTE: Pay monthly, but can't update due to your OS? Global (full image) presets and tools included in our collections will still work for you, but the AI Adaptive tools and effects will not. 

I purchased my Lightroom or Photoshop software outright

If you are using older Adobe software, or if you purchased a perpetual license for Lightroom or Photoshop outright prior to 2017, this software is no longer supported by Adobe. Thus, features and options are limited compared to the current Creative Cloud subscription iterations of the software. 


We would recommend only purchasing older collections that we have listed as compatible with perpetual license software. These older collections were tested in earlier software and are offered in LRTand XMP format. 

Earliest supported version for LR: Lightroom 5 (2013)

Earliest supported version for PS: CS6/ACR 9.1.1 


I edit on an iPhone or iPad  - which presets will work for me? 

A majority of our preset collections include DNG format presets for direct installation into Lightroom mobile on iPhone or iPad!

  • All global (full image edit) presets are offered in DNG format for use in both the paid & free Lightroom App on iOS. Shop the collections HERE

  • Tool, AI Adaptive, & Effects presets are not offered in DNG format, except for our AI Retouch Toolkit.

  • The AI Retouch Toolkit requires the Premium (Paid) Lightroom App to function.

  • XMP import for Lightroom on iOS is imperfect (See HERE). Direct install of DNG presets ensures proper install for iOS users.

I edit on an Android phone, tablet, or Chromebook- which presets will work for me? 

All of our preset collections include XMP format presets, compatible with direct import into Lightroom Mobile on Android (phone, tablet, and Chromebook).

  • Global (full image edit) presets and global (full image) tool presets will work in the Free & Premium Lightroom app on Android.

  • AI Adaptive & Effects presets require the Premium (Paid) version of the Lightroom Mobile app to function, as they rely on Masking.

  • XMP Presets can be imported whole .zip in Lightroom mobile on Android.

Compatibility by Product Type

Our collections are built to include as many options as possible, some of these options may not work for your software.  Learn more about which tools work in which software and which products work in software other than Lightroom & Photoshop below! 

Global (Full Edit) Presets

Presets (a.k.a. "general presets" or "workflow presets") make global changes to an image in Lightroom or Photoshop's Adobe Camera Raw. These are the full edit presets that are the core of our collections. They cannot be stacked and should be applied alone or before using a tool or layer preset. These do not include AI presets.

Global Tool Presets

Tool Presets or "stackable" presets are presets that change one or only a few quick settings to make small targeted adjustments in Lightroom or Photoshop's Adobe Camera Raw. They are typically used after a general preset has been applied to make any additional changes to perfect or enhance the image. They are fully optional and are built to create a quick custom workflow designed to compliment the theme of the preset collection you are using.

Adaptive AI & Special Effects Presets

Our All-New Adaptive AI & Special Effects presets rely on the latest Adobe Updates to create realistic snow, light, and atmospheric effects & localized retouching in just one click in LIGHTROOM! These specific Effects Presets and Toolkits will require the most current paid subscription of Lightroom, Lightroom Classic, and/or Photoshop to function. These are installed and work just like general presets in Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic, and Photoshop. 


All collections including these special presets come with full guides for use, so we always recommend reading linked workflow guides at time of purchase!

Special Effects Presets (like our Snow and Golden Hour Effects) are not compatible with DNG direct install on iPhone or iPad, and need to be synced from Lightroom CC on desktop to be used on iPhone or iPad. These are compatible for use in XMP format for Paid Lightroom subscribers on Android or Chromebook.

*Some Adaptive AI Presets that involve more specific subject & background masking will not work on older mobile devices. We will update as more functionality is available for mobile!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use your presets in non-Adobe software?

No. Our camera raw presets are designed for use in Adobe photo-editing software. Camera Raw presets are not cross-compatible with Affinity, Capture One, or Corel. 

Can I use your presets in the browser version of Lightroom?

No, Adobe has not designed the browser app to directly import presets. You would need to rely on sync & import them via the Premium Lightroom Mobile app on a mobile device logged into the same Adobe account you use to access the in-browser version of the application. 

Can I use overlays in Lightroom?

No, Adobe has not designed Lightroom to support layers or blending, so photo overlays are incompatible with all versions of Lightroom. However, they will work in ANY program or app that supports layers and blending. 

Can I use LUTs in Lightroom?

Lightroom does not support LUTs for color grading at this time. Affinity Photo & Capture One do support LUTs, however. 

Can I use Actions in Photoshop on a mobile device? 
No, Photoshop for iPad and Photoshop Express and Photoshop Camera were not designed to support Actions. 
Can I use Presets in Elements?
No, Photoshop Elements has not been designed to support presets. However, we do offer Actions formatted specifically for Photoshop Elements.
Are your presets compatible with the most up-to-date subscription versions of Lightroom & Photoshop?
Yep! Our presets will work in the latest versions of Lightroom Classic, Lightroom, the Lightroom Mobile App, and Photoshop! 
Can you use AI presets on Mobile? 
Android/Chromebook/Google:  Our AI/Effects presets can be installed and used on an Android device in the Premium Lightroom Mobile app! For Android, be sure to check out our Help Center guides for application instruction & tips! 

iPhone/iPad:  Adobe has not designed the mobile app on iOS/iPad to fully support the direct installand use of the latest AI Masking features. The only way to use AI tools on iPhone is to sync AI Presets to the mobile app from the latest subscription version of Lightroom (CC) on a computer. 
Do you offer presets for old perpetual versions of Lightroom?
For now, all of our older releases that originally included LRT files will still include LRTemplate files for download & use in older perpetual license versions of Lightroom Classic 5.0, 6.0, CC 2015, and later. All new releases excluding LRT are listed in the collection above. Not sure if a specific collection is compatible with your software?Please reach out to support@theluxelens.com for a full list of presets compatible with your software, or to ask about a specific collection prior to purchase.
