How do I transfer presets from iphone cloud to lightroom? So I won some presets from an instagram photographer and he emailed them to me. Keep in mind I don't have a desktop and I'm not familiar with the app or editing in general. I only have lightroom installed on my iPhone. How can I upload the presets he sent me to the app? I've searched everywhere I'm so confused

I guess those presets are only for the (expensive) desktop app.
Anyways, don’t expect to make better pictures with only presets. Those are just a starting point to work with.

Yes, I don't think we can add presets to mobile Lightroom. Hopefully in the near future.

I have my doubts: Adobe focuses on mobile and not "classic"

You can’t update the preset settings in LR mobile.

Hi Ayesha,

It is true that it is not a feature of Lightroom Mobile at this time.

If you have access to a friends computer you could load the presets and apply them to an unedited image.
-You could then export that image as a DNG.
-Email it to yourself.
-Open it on your phone and add it to Lightroom Mobile.
-Save that image to Lightroom Mobile and use it as the "preset" by copying it's settings and pasting them to another image of your choice.

It's a bit wonky but it will work.

Does that help?
