iPhone Installation Guide for Lightroom Mobile Presets
Currently, Adobe doesn’t have a way for us to automatically install mobile presets. Not to worry, the process is simple. It involves downloading the Preset DNG files to your phone. These Preset DNG files have all the preset settings saved into them. Next, we will simply copy the preset settings from the DNG files into your personal Lightroom preset collection.
NOTE: Based on your lighting conditions, camera settings and personal style, these presets will work differently on every photo. The final touch may be done by you through small adjustments like changing the exposure to create your perfect image. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help tailoring these presets to your specific photo.
