HOW TO APPLY OUR PRESETS IN LIGHTROOM MOBILE APP?
You have purchased our preset packs and want to edit your photos on your phone (with Lightroom Mobile App)? This guide will show you how to apply our Lightroom presets to your smartphone. Just to avoid any misunderstandings: You cannot create presets directly in Lightroom Mobile and you cannot have a formal preset list there. But there is a great way to bypass this limitation! Before going to Lightroom Mobile, we need a little bit of preparatory work in Lightroom Desktop.
STEP1: INSTALL THE LIGHTROOM MOBILE APP
Install the Lightroom Mobile App for Android or iOS and log in with your Adobe credentials.
STEP2: CREATE A COLLECTION IN LIGHTROOM DESKTOP VERSION
Open any convenient Lightroom catalog. In Library mode go to the bottom left panel labeled “Collections” and press on ‘+’ sign to create a new collection. I have called mine ‘Debiflue-Keeevsch Mobile Presets’
Pick any convenient unprocessed photo in the catalog. It doesn’t matter which photo you choose as we only want to import its settings in Lightroom Mobile App. Drag your photo and add it to the collection we just created. (We would recommend to choose a daylight photo. This will help you later to differentiate the presets in your Lightroom Mobile App.)
STEP3: APPLY PRESETS IN LIGHTROOM DESKTOP COLLECTION
Now we create as many virtual copies of this photo as the number of presets you want to access in Lightroom Mobile App. Each of them will be the equivalent of a preset when working on your photos in Lightroom Mobile. For example: If you bought one Preset Pack with 5 Filters you need to create 5 virtual copies The easiest way to create a virtual copy is to right-click on the photo and choose ‘Create Virtual Copy’ from the popup menu
Repeat as often as the number of copies you need.
Now goahead and apply each of the presets you want to access in Lightroom Mobile. I have picked the LA1-11 filters from our Los Angeles preset pack.
STEP4: SYNC LIGHTROOM DESKTOP AND LIGHTROOM MOBILE
Click on the badge next to the Lightroom Logo on the left Lightroom Desktop window. Start synchronizing by clicking the first option in the popup menu.
To make sure your collection will be visible in Lightroom Mobile, make sure it is synchronized. Lightroom Desktop Version signifies synchronozing with a sign on the left of the collection’s name.
Now it’s time to continue in the Lightroom Mobile App- Connect your smartphone to the Internet and open Lightroom Mobile App. At the top left corner of the screen there is a small cloud icon that shows you what happend with synchronizing. Tap on the cloud and enable synchronizing.
Now it’s time to wait. If you have a large numbers of presets it will take a bit longer. When all pictures are synchronized, Lightroom Mobile will show your collection alongside the photos you shot with Lightroom Mobile’s camera and other collections.
STEP5: CHOOSE AND APPLY YOUR PRESETS
Now you can finally choose and apply the presets. Tap on the collection with the synchronized Lightroom presets.
Tap the photo with the preset you would like to apply on any of your photos. Now click on the ‘3 Option buttons” on the top right corner and tap ‘Copy Settings’ an then ‘OK’.
Now choose a photo you want to apply the copied preset. Tap on it and click the ‘3 Option buttons” on the top right corner and tap ‘Paste Settings’ and then ‘OK’.
READY! The filter has now been applied to your photo J For further work, repeat STEP4.
