Hello!
I've made some nice photo settings, which I want to save as a file. When I export them as preset the only available format is .xmp. But I need them to be in .dng format.
Please help me to find out how to get it. 

No advice on using other formats. I really need .dng

Thank you ❤️

First- Presets for Lightroom (Classic and Cloudy) are always XMP files. The reason for DNG would be for people with the 'free' version of Lightroom on their phones or ipads. The DNG file is  a raw image filetype that can have preset edits embedded within the file. The DNG file acts as a "Carrier" (like the Trojan Horse!).  Lightroom-Classic users would 'Export as Original DNG' after saving the editing metadata to the file.

Why do you think you need them in DNG format? A DNG is an Adobe Digital NeGative, No real settings are stored in a DNG file. It is a RAW Image file.

 

Please state why you want a DNG file, for what purpose. What do you plan on doing with that DNG file.

Thank you for writing in here. 
I want to sell my presets on Etsy. And all current presets there I've checked are in this format. Seems like it's the most popular format for mobile Lightroom.

Thank you, I saw that article, but it's not helpful. On newer versions of LightRoom File Menu there are no such options. Screen Shot 2019-10-18 at 12.00.53 AM.png

First- Presets for Lightroom (Classic and Cloudy) are always XMP files.

The reason for DNG would be for people with the 'free' version of Lightroom on their phones or ipads.

 

The DNG file is  a raw image filetype that can have preset edits embedded within the file. The DNG file acts as a "Carrier" (like the Trojan Horse!).  Lightroom-Classic users would 'Export as Original DNG' after saving the editing metadata to the file. The DNG file is now imported into Lightroom-"free" and the embedded Preset can be extracted from the DNG.

https://stayclosetravelfar.com/how-to-install-lightroom-mobile-presets/

 

Anyone with a subscription to the Photography Plan with Lightroom, can easily have XMP Presets Imported into Lightroom-Desktop (ie. Lightroom-Desktop on a PC/Mac) and the Presets will automatically sync to mobile devices. 'Carrier' DNGs are NOT required.

https://helpx.adobe.com/in/lightroom-cc/using/add-sync-mobile-presets.html

 

So I believe the answer for the OP is to Export DNG files with each Preset applied- Lightroom-Classic would be needed for this. The DNG images would be 'sold' to clients to extract the Preset in each DNG.

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.0.1, Photoshop 23.0.2, Lightroom 5.0, Bridge 12.0, Windows-10.

I am having the same issue. I want to sell some presets on Etsy, so if I understand correct from the answer above: I can sell the DNG files for people who have the free version?

What if you have the paid version and you don't have a desktop version to sync the .xmp files from there? Can you also import the .xmp files only to the mobile version or do they need .dng as well?

WobertC gave you the correct answer and that you are asking about Lightroom, the newer Cloud Centric version and not the Classic LR version.

I was wondering, is this still the most recent solution to create a DNG preset in Lightroom Classic?
