While I wouldn’t use it as my full-time editing suite, Adobe Lightroom CC Mobile is a great way to edit your photographs on the go. Now with the ability to use your favorite Presets, it’s an even better choice for those quick editing sessions. Today I’m going to show you how to install your presets on your mobile devices.

Import Your Presets In Lightroom CC

The first thing we need to do is get the presets in to your PC or Mac version of Lightroom CC.

  1. Click the Presets button in the bottom right-hand corner of your Adobe Lightroom CC window. A new panel will pop open on the right side of your screen.
  2. Next to the “Presets” title click the three dots to open the menu.
  3. Select Import Presets.

Important: Make sure you’re actually using Adobe Lightroom CC and not Adobe Lightroom Classic. This will not work with Lightroom Classic.

  1. Select your presets in the file dialog.

Tip: You can definitely select each preset individually but a better idea is to click the .zip file included in your purchase and it’ll import the whole set. Handy!

Your Lightroom CC presets will now show up in your window. You can hover over them to see a preview of the final result. Just click to it add it to your photograph.

We’re now finished with this portion. You’ve just installed your Presets on your computer. Now it’s time to get them on mobile.

The one thing missing from mobile editing was Presets and Actions. It’s excited that us photographers are getting closer and closer to being able to truly work anywhere.
