Step by step: How to download and import your presets into Lightroom Mobile App


1. Download your new preset pack

Step 1: After your purchase, you will be directed to a new page with a blue "Download Now" button. Click that button to begin your download.

Step 2: At the top right of Safari you will see a blue circle button with a downward arrow inside. Click that button to display your downloading files.

Step 3: Once the files have downloaded, click on them. This will take you to the "Downloads" section of your "Files" app.


2. Unzip your new preset pack

Step 4: You will see a new .zip file at the top of the downloads list. Click on that file to unzip it and a new blue folder will appear. Click that folder to open its contents.
 
Step 5: Click on the "DNG (Mobile Download).zip" file to unzip it and a new blue folder will appear. Click that folder to open its contents. Your files are now unzipped and ready to be imported into Lightroom!


3. Import your new pack into the Lightroom Mobile App

Step 6: Go back to your home screen and open the Lightroom Mobile app.

Step 7: Open up your Library (you should see your photo gallery). Note that if you open the app and are in the photo editor, just click the back arrow at the top left to get to the Library.

Step 8: At the top right, click on the 3 dots. From the menu, select "Add Photos" and then choose "From Files." This will take you back to your downloads in the "Files" app.
 
Step 9: The folder containing the presets should open. If it doesn't, just head into your "downloads" and click on the blue DNG (Mobile Download) folder. At the top, you will see a blue circle with 3 dots in it. Click that button and choose "Select" from the menu. Then, select each file and at the top click on "Open."

Step 10: You will now be taken back to the Lightroom app and the files will be imported into your Library (they should be the latest pictures in your gallery. If not, at the top right, click on the 3 dots again and select "Sort by Import Date").


4. Save the presets and voila!

Step 11: Click on the first imported photo from the preset pack in your Library to open up the editor.
*We've labeled the name of the preset pack and preset name on each picture so you can easily manually save each preset.*

Step 12a: Next, in the bottom menu, choose "Presets." At the top, you will see a white circle with 3 dots in it. Click that button and choose "Create Preset" from the menu. Enter the name of the preset into the "Preset Name" field.

Step 12b: Now, for this fist photo we will take one extra step and create a new Preset Group so that we can save each preset into its own folder. Select thee "User Presets" dropdown under "Preset Group" and select "Create New Preset Group" from the menu and enter in the name of the preset pack, then click the checkmark at the top right which will take you back to the previous menu.

Step 13: Finally, select the checkmark at the top right. We have now created the folder for the preset pack and with the first preset! 

Step 14: Repeat step 12a and 13 for the remaining photos from the preset pack. When doing so, make sure to select the new preset group you just created under "Preset Group" to save them all into the same folder. Once you have saved all the presets, you are good to go!
