How to Install & Apply a Lightroom Preset on Mobile

There are two methods of installing the Lightroom Presets onto your mobile device application. Method 1 is highly recommended as it is the easiest and fastest way to get all Presets running. If you do not have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription you need to go for method 2 which will take slightly longer.

Method 1

You need to install all Presets in the Lightroom desktop application first. Please read the detailed instruction above. It is important that you use the Lightroom CC and not the Lightroom Classic application. After installing all Presets they will automatically be synced to your mobile device via cloud. You find a step-by-step guide here.

 

Method 2

The following instruction will guide you through the installation process for the free Lightroom mobile app for iOS and android without the usage of the Lightroom desktop app. If you have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription plan method 1 is highly recommended as it works a lot faster and easier.

  • Name the Preset after the Preset-Pack and save it to the Presets group.
