    Thanks for these you guys, I’m looking forward to trying them out. I’m digging Lightroom too, having just gotten into it! Cheers.

    p.s. just a small thing but the text for the folder location has the \ marks backwards. It should look like this on pc, i dunno what the mac syntax is:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Develop Presets

      If you get an error message, the file is probably corrupted and you can try re-downloading it.

      Vista built-in zip handling is clumsy, but it does it job. It does not have the typical right-click extract button, but you just double click the file and press “Extract all” button in the toolbar to unzip.

      use winzip :P worked for me
      or just try double clicking sometimes zipped files are just in a compressed folder and can be accessed without an unziping program
