Step 3: Save the Presets

On Mobile - make sure you know where the unzipped files are located on your phone or device.
Step 4: Open the Lightroom Mobile CC App
Locate your free Lightroom app. On your mobile and click to open.
Once its open, you can add the DNG/Preset files.
Step 5: Add the DNG/Preset Files
Go to the top-right corner of the app.
Click on the (...) Settings option to add a preset.
Choose the Add Photos option.
On the next screen - choose the location where you have stored your DNG/Preset files.
Stored on Phone? Choose "From Camera Roll".
Stored in Cloud Storage? Choose "From Files".
Select the DNG/Preset files you would like to import.
This step may be a little different depending on your mobile phone, however most phones offer a way to select multiple files/images.
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.
Step 5: Create Lightroom Presets from the DNG Files
Click on one of the newly imported files, then click on the three dots inside a circle in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. From there, choose “Create Preset” from the menu that appears.
Give your preset a name. We recommend using the same name that is on the front of the preset image (to keep things simple).
You should also put the preset in a Preset Group. By default, it will be in the User Presets group. Creating a new group with your new collection’s name will keep the presets from each collection together.
Do these same steps for each DNG/preset file.
Step 6. Using Your New Presets
Now for the FUN part!
Select an image in the Lightroom Mobile App that you would like to edit. Swipe left on the bottom options until you see "Presets" and tap on that option. It will open with your most recently used preset collection. By tapping on the collection name, you can choose the new collection you just installed.
Click through the presets until you find the one you like. When you are finished adding your preset, click the check mark in the lower right corner.
NOTE: Our presets will not change your exposure or white balance, since those settings can vary with each image. We encourage you to make those adjustments as necessary before or after choosing your preset.
