How to Install Presets in the Lightroom Mobile App

The Lightroom mobile app is perfect for editing photos taken with your phone or mobile device, but what if you want to use presets?

There are two different ways to get pre-made presets (like the presets from on your mobile device. The easiest way is to install the presets in the desktop version of Lightroom (formerly known as Lightroom CC) and the presets will be automatically synced to your mobile device. In order for this to work:

  1. You must have the desktop version of Lightroom installed
  2. Your installations of Lightroom and the Lightroom mobile app must be logged in to the same Adobe account.

If you have Lightroom installed on a desktop, please see our instructions for installing presets.

If you don’t have Lightroom installed on a desktop or laptop, you can still get our presets onto your mobile device, but it’s not quite as straightforward. To do this, you’ll need to download the .dng files for the presets to your mobile device and then save the preset from each .dng file. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to use the preset on any photo.

The video below will walk you through the process of getting presets onto your mobile device.
