    Sorry, Lightroom presets are not compatible with Photo raw.

    Even export presets or watermarks? None can be imported?

    No, not even presets or watermarks.

    That's a shame. Thanks for the quick response.

    What format is the watermark in?

    I don't see a watermark as being Lightroom specific. Whatever you imported into Lightroom should work in Photo Raw as well and if you created a watermark in Lightroom, you should be able to export it in a format that will work.

    Need more details to provide a better answer.

    I have several watermarks I made in LR after importing an image. I'm sure I can recreate them all in On1 by importing the logo but I was hoping since I already have several different logos named, scaled, transparency/opacity and location on the photo that happens on export when I choose a watermark that I made in LR I was hoping to import all those in without having to make them again. But I guess if On1 can't use LR import/export presets it's sure not going to use the saved watermark specifics.

    Ok, so we're talking about settings and no reason that On1 would be compatible with those. So yes, you'll have to import the watermark and set it up again.

    Note that the next release of On1 has a new export module which includes watermarking. Basic information in https://www.on1.com/blog/on1-insider-a-sneak-peek-at-the-remastered-export/. Probably not worth you going too deeply into setting up watermarks on On1 if new options make things easier for you to achieve what you want.

    Thank you David T, now that is very helpful! Looks like I picked about the right time to give up on LR

    There is a sort of work around to bring the results of stylising type LR presets that don't include basic development settings to On1. It involves the use of Affinity Photo which doesn't seem to have a free trial but is covered by a time limited money back guarantee.

    First load a photo into LR and reset all the settings, then apply Auto exposure. Export a copy of this file as JPG or Tiff.

    Next apply the stylising preset in LR and export the result of this as JPG or Tiff.

    Open Affinity Photo and load any photo and add a LUT adjustment layer. In the properties of this is an Infer LUT button press this and then open the first file exported from LR without preset and then the one with the preset. 

    From the top toolbar select File and towards the bottom of the drop down list is Export LUT, chose name and set quality to 32 and export to suitable location.

    Then in On1 load the photo you used when applying the preset apply Auto AI and then move to Effects and add LUT filter. Choose Import LUT to load the .cube LUT file created above and all going well the photo will look very similar to the version in LR. You will have access to all the usual On1 settings to then adjust image to your satisfaction. If you use other Effects filters to fine tune the result then you can save an On1 preset to make use of in the future.

    Not necessarily an easy process if you have lots of presets and it does involve yet another application but just about possible if moving presets is really important.

    As example first image is from On1 using LUT created in the manner described above and the second the original Lightroom version.
