So you’ve purchased our awesome BFT Mobile Preset Pack, but now how do you install and use the presets on the Lightroom mobile app?
Fear not, here is a step by step guide.
Our BFT Mobile Preset Pack is a simple, varied pack for the beginner who wants to have options to quickly photos. We have a bit of everything to ensure a good editing range. Please keep in mind not all photos will look the same under any one preset. However, the preset is designed to simplify the editing process. Most outdoor and well lit inside shots will look great with our BFT Mobile Preset Pack.
Step 1: Download the Lightroom Mobile App
This is a free app, and without it none of this is possible. The app is available on your App Store and looks like this.
Step 2: You will need to unzip the files
Open the unzip app and locate your files which should’ve downloaded into your phone. Once you click on the files it will download and open them.
Then you will open the files in iZIP
Click each file and you should see it turn into a .DNG underneath
Once all your files are DNG you will click on them one by one and click on “OPEN IN” in the far left corner of the screen.
If you have a computer handy, download the ZIP file on your laptop and double-click to unzip it. That should create a folder of the same name with the DNG image files inside.
Now you need to transfer the DNG files to your phone via Dropbox or any other method you prefer.
Step 3: Import Presets into Lightroom App
If you followed the steps above, you should now have the Lightroom App launched on your phone and the picture in DNG format should appear in your Lightroom library
If you go into your photo stream and see them as blank picture files, worry not! – that’s how they should look.
- Click on the photo that just downloaded
- Once the three dots open, click on Create Preset
When you’re done, hit the check mark on the top far corner. We highly suggest you title your presets and place them under a folder, this way you will have them organized for easier finding later on.
Step 4 : Edit with your presets
Once you’ve saved the preset in your Lightroom app folder ( I highly recommend you make a folder and title them so you know where to find it) it’s time to get editing!
Grab any photo from your library in Lightroom or import one from your camera roll
You are done. If you like the photo as it is you are good to go. If you’d like you can go and tweak the lighting, colors, effects or play with other presets as well.
This is also a good way to create your own presets as something that works for me might not entirely work for you, but might get you closer to your ideal look. If you edit this preset and end up with something you love even more that you would like to use for other photos of yours, you can save the new preset and start your own collection.
What do you think? Are you a fan of presets?
Even though not all presets work for all photos, we love using them for quick edits and on the go photo altering. Which one of the BFT Mobile Lightroom Preset pack is your favorite?
