60+ Best Lightroom Mobile Presets 2021 & 30 Shortcodes To Manage Images

 • 14 min read


Best Lightroom Mobile Presets. I guess it is obvious, that mobility is a key to success in modern society. Almost every person has a smartphone that allows him to access the internet from most of the spots he could reach. With the high-resolution cameras that are now a part of every good mobile phone the field of professional photography no longer belongs to people with cool cameras. Literally, everyone can now take astonishing pictures and share them through social media. And moreover, different apps like Adobe Lightroom allow not only take the picture with your smartphone but also process them without involving the PC.

When you are out with friends or went hiking and took a marvelous photo you could want to publish it to your Instagram immediately. But showing it off without any processing is not quite good. Wasting time for customizing the look when you are having fun is not the best decision either. A ready-made preset would be a great solution in this case. Especially if you created that preset by your own hands and it fits your taste perfectly. Transferring presets from your desktop Lightroom to the mobile version is not as complicated as you might think. I’m going to show you two ways to do it – choose the one that looks simpler for you.

Using Lightroom presets has been a way of life for me for some time now. Quick thumbnails and image correction become a breeze. Using Lightroom presets on mobile is a pretty cool addition, the integration however, needs you to use the Lightroom Desktop app as a de facto third party. If you haven’t installed Lightroom’s desktop app, you will need to do so before you start downloading presets.

Now, personally, I usually choose the presets depending on the project, however, there are a few that I pick out simply because they are that good. Some of BeArt’s incredible 550+ presets or Samuel Zeller’s incredible landscape presets have been a regular part of my preset inventory. Now transferring the presets you have chosen will require you to download Lightroom’s mobile application. In the meantime install the presets on your desktop application. Once you have done both the actions, and your mobile and desktop apps have the same version, you should be able to use your Lightroom presets on mobile.

Point of caution, the preset button on your mobile application will be a few scrolls to the right. And when you click on it, they may not be in the order you are familiar with. Rest assured though they are all there. If you are unable to find your presets in your Lightroom mobile, check if you are logged into your Adobe account used by your desktop version. Make sure you are using the same version across the synced devices. *

Copying settings

Actually, this method is a kind of cheat. You don’t transfer the presets but save a picture with applied presets on it and just copy the settings to the other photos you made. It is rather simple but you have to waste some time on sending photos to yourself from computer to mobile.

Create a preset in your desktop Lightroom, apply it to some picture and save it as a .dng file. Send that file to yourself – either to email or messenger, and open on your smartphone. Usually, when you open such a file in mobile the system asks you what app would you like to use – and you can choose to open the file with Lightroom mobile application. After opening the photo with Lightroom – tap the symbol in the right upper corner in the shape of three dots. In the opened list choose “Copy Settings” option.

A little list of settings will emerge – don’t deselect the parts of the preset, just click “OK”. Now open the photo you would like to edit according to the chosen preset. Tap the menu button in the shape of three dots and choose “Paste Settings” option. Voila, you applied the preset you created in PC Lightroom to the mobile. Now, if you will save that picture to your phone you will be able to copy the settings every time you would like to use that preset.

Another settings copying (just a little different)

In the core, this method is almost similar to the previous one and it is a little funny because it uses the same principle – it applies the settings of the previous photo to the current one. This way of transferring will be perfect for big collections of presets you would like to make available for you from the phone.

First of all, you have to create some presets and apply them to photos. Gather them into one folder – that will be a set that you transfer to the Lightroom Mobile. When all of that is ready – shift to the “Library” tab. In the left-side menu go to the “Collections” section and press the plus-shaped button in the right upper corner.

In the drop-down menu choose the “Create Collection…” option. In the opened window type the name of your new collection and hit the “Create” button.

Add the photos you created previously to that collection. Through the “Add to catalog” option open the folder you store the photos with applied presets and in the right-side menu match the bow to add it to a collection. You will be proposed to choose the collection and when you will press the “Import” button the collection will be made. Turn back to the “Library” tab, click at the plus-shaped button of “Collections” section and choose “Sync with Lightroom mobile” option. If you can’t see it – click on your name at the top of the page and check the “Sync with Lightroom mobile” row. If it is paused – turn it on.

Your collection is synchronized with your mobile version. Open the app and you will see the new collection in the “Collections” section. Open it and then tap on the picture with the preset you would like to use. Take a look at the cloud symbol in the left upper corner. When it ends loading – the preset is ready for use. Get back to the other photos and choose the one you would like to edit. Swipe the settings and tap the “Previous” button. From the little menu choose “All from previous” option and tap it – that’s all, the settings of the previous photo are now applied to the current one.

Video Instruction Installing Presets on iOS or Android

There are two main ways to install the presets to the Lightroom mobile app – using the desktop version and in the app. The first one is kind of easier than the second one since you simply install the pre-made filters using your computer and they will automatically appear in the application. However, note that this method only works for the desktop application. If you don’t know how to add the filters on a desktop, you can utilize this guide from Adobe. But now we are going to focus on the installation on mobile devices, so here’s how you can do that on iOS and Android.

Installing Presets on iOS

1. Download the .ZIP file onto your iPhone or iPad
2. Open the application, tap on the “+” and create a new folder
3. Head to the folder and create a new album inside it
4. Add the DNG files to that album
5. Open the first DNG file, tap on the three dots icon, and create a preset
6. Name it and save
7. Done, now your new filter is available in the library

Installing Presets on Android

1. Download the .ZIP file on your device
2. Head to the application on your Android device and open an image from your library
3. Go to the Presets tab, tap on the three dots to open the menu, and select “Import Presets”
4. In the file explorer, find the .ZIP file you just downloaded on your phone and select it
5. The presets will be added to your library
