Hi Sophie, apply the preset to a picture and export it in DNG format. Send this picture to your friend and he/she can save it as a preset and give it a meaningful name.
You know the new export setup in last LR release? It is the symbol on the right side of the export menu.

update: best is to use the "Share to" export then you can directly email. And please select a picture which is not a very big one. If you want to have more information about the background of this strange method, then tell me. :-) 

update2: If the receiver is using LR on and iPad or iPhone, then he/she should save it to files and import it via files in LR

"Send this picture to your friend and he/she can save it as a preset and give it a meaningful name." How do you save a DNG as a preset???

Hi avpman, in a DNG file you have all the edit steps in the picture and when you open the picture and click on the 3 dots in the upper right corner you find a menu, here click on create presets. Do not forget to activate "tools" if you have part of your edits in selective linear or radial gradients.

Bad choice of words. The other person imports the DNG, which will come in with the develop settings applied to it. So all that other person has to do is save those develop settings as a new preset.

This would be a great way to also save my own presets in case of a catastrophic failure! Thank you...
