If you want your Instagram photos to be aesthetically pleasing in one tone, to look fresh, cheerful, and colorful, this is your mobile preset. As you can see for yourself – it is suitable for a wide variety of types of photos – from landscapes to portraits.
STEP 1: UNZIP THE FILES
If you need to do this step on a iPhone or iPad, just tap on the zipped file and it will unzip. If you need to do this on an Android phone, you will need to download the Files by Google or WinZip app (Android app) to your phone.
STEP 2: SAVE THE PRESETS
If you unzipped the presets on your computer, you will need to save the preset files to your cloud storage option, so you can access them on your mobile phone.
If you unzipped the preset download on your phone, you can skip this step. Make sure you know where the unzipped files are located on your phone or device.
STEP 3: OPEN THE LIGHTROOM MOBILE CC APP
STEP 4: ADD THE DNG/PRESET FILES
Choose the Add Photos option.
On the next screen, choose the location you will be pulling your DNG/Preset files from. If you have saved them to your phone, choose “From Camera Roll”. If you have saved them to a cloud storage option, choose “From Files”.
STEP 5: CREATE LIGHTROOM PRESETS FROM THE DNG FILES
Click on one of the newly imported files, then click on the three dots inside a circle in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. From there, choose “Create Preset” from the menu that appears.
Give your preset a name. I recommend typing the same name that is on the front of the preset image (to keep things simple).
You should put the preset in a Preset Group. By default, it will be in the User Presets group. Creating a new group with your new collection’s name will keep the presets from each collection together.
USING YOUR NEW PRESETS
Select an image in the Lightroom Mobile App that you would like to edit. Swipe left on the bottom options until you see “Presets” and tap on that option. It will open with your most recently used preset collection. By tapping on the collection name, you can choose the new collection you just installed.
Click through the presets until you find the one you like.
