When you get presets for the free version of Lightroom mobile, they are typically in DNG format. If you get a group of presets, rather than a single one, it downloads to your computer or mobile phone as a zipped folder. Follow this tutorial to learn how to unzip the folder and save presets from the DNG files so you can use them over and over on other photos.
❶ Unzip the Files
The first thing you need to do is unzip the downloaded folder to extract the presets you acquired. You can either do this on your computer or on your phone itself.
❷ Save the Presets
If you unzip the preset folder on your computer, you need to move contents to your phone once they are unzipped. You can use any cloud storage service you have access to on your phone and computer or you can connect your phone to your computer and move the files to it manually.
If you do this process on your mobile phone, make sure you save the unzipped presets to your phone.
❸ Add the DNG files to Lightroom mobile
After you transfer the DNG files to your phone from the computer or extract them from the zipped folder on your mobile phone, you need add the photos to the app.
NOTE: Preset files are DNG files. When you initially open the image, you may get an error that says, “Cannot Load File”. This is normal. Press the check mark in the corner anyway.
❹ Create presets from DNG Files
❹ Use the new presets
Hey. What if in the 3dots menu top right... there is no option for Create Presets??
It looks as if you've run into a bug.
Have you restarted the app to see if it helps?
Is this on the latest 5.3 release?
You most likely need to go over the Presets icon to create a preset.
Hi, most of my custom presets don't have effect on the exposure (and other settings). When importing them on mobile, is there any way to avoid having to uncheck all the unused settings' checkboxes for each one of them?
Hi, since the update it is impossible to do this for me, is it normal?
can you please give us some more info on what doesn't work for you exactly?
