Lightroom is the little brother of photoshop specialized in photography editing. This app allows you to enhance your photos without complex editing or drastic transformations.

We created our presets to simplify your editing and save you time while taking advantage of our full experience in editing photos. Whether you are a professional or not you deserve to have beautiful pictures.

INSTALLING LIGHTROOM PRESETS

Getting the pro version of the app gives you the advantage to install your presets very quickly from your desktop software and have it synchronize on all your connected devices / mobile / tablet. Let’s get on the steps to install your presets! The whole process takes only a few seconds

STEP 1. GET THE SOFTWARE ON YOUR DESKTOP DEVICE.

Download Lightroom CC from your creative cloud and open it. Be careful not to mistake it with Lightroom Classic for desktop, the software we want has turquoise color and rounded corners

Open the library / the photo section for easy access and then follow these steps : 

  • In the top menu select "File"

STEP 4. FIND YOUR PRESETS ON MOBILE
