HOW DO I USE THE PRESETS AFTER INSTALLING THEM?
After you have installed the presets and the collection folder shows in the Presets panel in the Develop module, click the BLACK TRIANGLE beside the collection name. The set will open up and the individual presets will show. Click on a preset name to have the effect applied to the image. See this tutorial which explains more about accessing the presets after installation.
HOW TO USE BRUSHES AND GRADUATED FILTERS
Brushes and graduated filters are called "local adjustments" and are used very differently than regular, "global" presets. We have a one-hour webinar dedicated to using brushes and graduated filters which will help you get started using them quickly and efficiently.
CAN PRESETS BE LAYERED LIKE ACTIONS?
Most presets cannot be layered like Photoshop actions because most of the time the changes are competing with each other. However, a few of our collections were created with layering in mind. See this tutorial for how to use presets that layer. The collections that can be "layered" are: Workflow, Clean and Creative Advanced Workflow, Black and White Workflow, and Color Luxe.
HOW DO I APPLY PRESETS TO MULTIPLE IMAGES AT ONCE?
Edits made with presets or by hand can be applied to multiple images at once by using the "sync" option. See this tutorial on syncing edits on multiple images.
HOW CAN I TRANSFER PRESETS TO ANOTHER COMPUTER?
Sometimes we upgrade computers and need to move presets from one computer to another. See this tutorial on moving presets to see how to do it.
DO I NEED TO BACK-UP PRESETS AND BRUSHES?
Backing-up your presets is extremely important and often overlooked. Hard drive crashes happen to the best of us and it is wise to back up all your images and important files, including presets. See this tutorial for how to back-up your presets on an external drive, thumb drive, and/or a cloud service.

I didn't have the opportunity to use the guide but it has truly easy and helpul advice
I feel at ease going into my next family photo session. Thanks, Pretty Presets, for this great guide!
My new fav!
I never thought I'd use a dark or moody preset on my images, but here I am! Dark and Moody Millennium collection gives just enough pop to my images to make it a perfect choice for my style. It works well for landscape as well as portrait photos. My new favorite presets!
This guide was so helpful in giving me ideas for posing and workflow.
