How To Install Lightroom Mobile Presets

Step 1: Download the DNG files to your phone

From the link I sent you, there files are pictures in .DNG format. To download these to your phone, click to the files, tap and hold to save them in your camera roll.

Step 2: Import preset files into Lightroom Mobile

At this point you should have all of your DNG files saved to your phone, in your camera roll. The files serve as “preset carriers” and now you just need to add them to Lightroom mobile and save presets out of them.

If you go into your photo stream and see them as blank picture files, don’t be alarmed – that’s how they should look.

Open Lightroom Mobile and tap on the Add Photos button in the lower right corner:

If you downloaded them directly to your Camera Roll through the Google Drive link I sent you, select From Camera Roll

Next, select the DNG presets from your camera roll and import them into your Lightroom Mobile app:

Step 3: Save Settings as Presets

At this point you should have all of your DNG files imported into Lightroom Mobile. Locate the files and open one of them inside the app.
Now tap on the 3 dots icon at the top right of the screen and then tap on Create Preset:

Next you will see the New Preset screen (shown below) which contains all the options you can use to customize your preset. You can give your preset a name (highly recommended) and add it into a Preset Group in Lightroom. We recommend you create preset groups if you have a lot of presets and want to keep them organized.

The checkboxes below determine which picture settings you’d like to save with this preset.
I personally check all boxes except for Tools, Optics and Geometry. That’s because those parameters vary from picture to picture and I will probably never need to crop or rotate different pictures exactly the same way.

When you’re done with the settings save your preset by tapping on the checkmark icon at the top right corner. Repeat this step for each DNG file as you will need to save each preset separately. Don’t worry though, you only need to do this once!

Step 4: Using Lightroom

Mobile Presets

To use your new presets just go back into your library and open any photo you’d like to edit.
Find the Presets icon in the menu at the bottom of the screen and tap on it. Make sure the Preset Group that’s selected is the one where you saved your new presets. If you saved them in the User Presets group, select that.

Now you can edit the photo by tapping on a preset from the list and then tapping on the checkmark. You can still continue to edit the photo and make adjustments if you like, after you’ve applied the preset.

And that’s it! Now you know how to install, save and use your Lightroom Mobile presets.
