What are Presets?
Presets are high quality filters to edit your photos in lightroom. They are like instagram filters, but more customizable and higher quality. They are great for giving your social media feed a consistant look, or just enhancing your everyday photos!
Do you need Lightroom to use the mobile presets?
Yes you do & the app is absolutely FREE!
How do you download the presets?
1 – Install the Lightroom CC app from the Google Play Store for Android devices or iTunes for Apple devices.
2 – Create one album – this will help you see where you put the presets. I called mine as “.My Presets”
3 – Download the presets with your phone or use the download link sent to your email and open with your phone. If you download on your laptop you can either send them to your phone via Airdrop, iCloud Drive, DropBox, or via email. I find Airdrop works best. Or, you can just use the files sent directly to your email!
4 – Click the preset to download it (one at a time). Then click the arrow on the top right to open it. Scroll through your apps to choose Lightroom CC as pictured below. Click “Copy to Lightroom CC”.
5 – When imported, click the three-little-dots icon in the top right which will open a dropdown menu.
6 – Click “Copy Settings” then click “OK”
7 – Inside the Lightroom app go to a photo you’d like to edit. Usually, you can add it into your new folder.
8 – Click the top right button (ellipsis) and then click “Paste Settings”
9 – Your photo is transformed with the exact settings!
10 – Repeat the process with all the presets and make sure to add all the presets and each time you’d like to edit your photos on mobile you will need to just copy the settings from one of the presets and then paste it into the new photo.
Youtube has plenty of step by step tutorials for downloading as well if you need extra assistance!
