    I've followed all your instructions. No problem with the Beauty Presets but the Brush presets  don't appear in the preset folder in LR5.

    Hi Philippe,

    The Lightroom brush presets go into the folder called 'Local Adjustment Presets', its in the same place as the 'Develop Presets' folder.

    Please let us know if you need any more info or help with anything.
