Step 1

Export The Mobile Presets From The Dropbox Folder

The files might look strange in Dropbox, this is normal so please do not stress.

Note: If You Don’t See “Copy To Lightroom” Or Having Issues, Please See Step 1a Below. Otherwise Go To Step 2.

Step 1a: Skip This Step If You Have Successfully Completed “Step 1”

Save all the files to your phone

If you don’t see “Copy to Lightroom” then you will need to save all the images to your photo library or camera roll first.

Depending on your phone, you might see them appear to be blank in your camera roll. This is normal, please continue.

Open Lightroom App

Now open your Lightroom Mobile app, and tap the ‘add images’ icon.

Tap “From camera roll”

Select all the images you just saved to the camera roll, and tap add. note: make sure you have saved all the preset images.

They should look like this once they've all been imported.

Step 2

Create Presets

The bad news is that you will need to do this for each file/preset, but the good news is that you only need to do it once.

Tap the option icon

Tap “create preset”

1. Type in the preset name, make sure it is the same as file name eg. OT1, G2, A3 etc

2. Create a new Preset group, and name it the preset collection you’ve got, in this case it’s called “Orange & Teal Collection”. You only need to do this once, as the rest of the collection will be put in this group.

3. Select “ALL”

4. Done. Now you’ve successfully created one preset. Please repeat this step and finish creating the rest of the collection.

Step 3

Congratulations! You’ve Successfully Imported All The Presets. Now You Can Apply The Presets To Your Photos.

Pick a photo, and tap “Presets” menu

Pick a preset

Under the new group you just created, in this case “Orange & Teal” go through all the presets until you find the one that you like.

Simple adjustments

If the photo turns out too bright or too dark, just tap the 'Light' menu, and move the 'Exposure' dial.
