How To Add Presets To Lightroom Mobile

This tutorial will teach you how to add presets to Lightroom Mobile

Step 1: Get The DNG Files To Your Phone

Most mobile presets come as DNG files that you can download to your phone directly from the site you receive them on. In this case, download the files to your phone and go to Step 2.

Step 2: Add Presets To Lightroom Mobile

Now that you have all the presets saved to your phone, you just need to add them to Lightroom Mobile.

Open the Lightroom app and create a new album by tapping [+] and then Create Album.

Then open the new album, tap on the 3 dots in the upper right corner and then tap on “Add Photos”

If you saved the DNG files to your Camera Roll through Dropbox or download, 

select “From Camera Roll”

Next, select the DNG presets from your camera roll and add them into the new album you created in Lightroom:

Step 3: Save Presets In Lightroom

At this point all of your DNG files should be in the new album you created in Lightroom Mobile. Now you just need to go through each file and save it as a preset to use later..

Go into the album containing your newly imported DNG file.

Open the first file

Tap on the 3 dots icon at the top right of the screen and then tap on 

“Create Preset”

Next you will see the “New Preset” screen below that you can use to customize the preset you’re saving. Name your preset and choose which preset group you want to save it in. You can save it in “User Presets” or you can create your own groups. This is best if you have a lot of presets and want to keep them organized.

The checkboxes below determine which picture settings you’d like to save with this preset. Only the settings you choose here will be applied to the pictures you edit with it in the future.


When you’re done with the settings, save your preset by tapping on the checkmark icon at the top right corner.

Repeat this step for each DNG file as you will need to save each preset separately. Don’t worry though, you only need to do this once! In this case, you only have one DNG file.

And that’s it! Now you know how to add DNG presets to Lightroom Mobile 🙂
