Dreamy Presets Mobile Preset Installation Guide


Please Read Before You Proceed

Our mobile preset is .DNG file format which is different from the standard Lightroom preset .lrtemplate file that's designed for Lightroom desktop only. 

In this tutorial, you will be using Google Drive to facilitate transferring our mobile preset from your computer to your phone.

You may opt to use a different file storage platform other than Google Drive such iCloud or Dropbox; however, we cannot advise how to get our mobile preset from those platforms to your mobile phone. 

You Must Have The Following:

  • iPhone 6-10 OR Phones running on Android 7 or newer
  • Computer or Laptop 
  • Google Gmail Account (free)
  • Google Drive App installed on your phone (free)
  • Lightroom CC Mobile App installed on your phone (free) 

Basic knowledge of using Lightroom and the apps listed above is also required.

Important Things To Remember:

  • Never double-click on the mobile preset file from your computer. This action can potentially reset our preset settings. You must install the mobile preset exactly as described below.
  • Do not upload the zip file to your Google Drive. Upload only the mobile preset file.

    OPTION 2

    Depending on your iOS version, you may not have the option to "Save  Image". If you don't see that option, you can click on the "Lightroom CC App" icon to open the file directly in the app. This option is not available on all iOS versions.

    OPTION 3

    If "Save as Image" or "Open in Lightroom" is not available, it's very likely that you uploaded the zip file instead of the mobile preset file. You will need to delete the zip file from Google Drive and restart from step #1.

    OPTION 4

    If you did only upload the mobile preset file, but you still don't have the "Save as Image" or "Open in Lightroom" option, you can choose the Mail option and email the mobile preset file to yourself (Send a copy > Mail icon). Then open the email from your phone, save the mobile preset file to your camera roll, and then continue to the next step below!
  4. Create a "Dreamy Presets" photo album in Lightroom CC App
