HOW TO INSTALL YOUR PRESETS


Step 1: Download. My single presets are all sold as DNG files. With these single files skip to step 2.  If you have purchased my Preset Pack please read below.

My preset pack option comes compressed into a ZIP file. Most cell phones are not able to open ZIP files. With this particular preset pack, you will need to download the file to a computer first. 

Once you’ve downloaded the ZIP file, double-click to unzip it. This should create a folder of the same name with the DNG image files inside. Each of these DNG file is a preset that you now need to move to your phone and import into Lightroom.

Step 2: Transfer the DNG files to your phone. The best way I've found to do this is by using Dropbox, but you can use any other file transferring method you prefer. To use Dropbox, drag your DNG files into your Dropbox folder and wait for the files to sync.

TWO OPTIONS:

First option is to go into your Dropbox folder on your phone and export each DNG file into your phone. Click the THREE DOTS in the upper right hand corner and then click EXPORT. Then, SAVE IMAGE to your phone. You should be able to find the DNG files in your camera roll when you go to import a photo in your light room app. 

Option two is to import directly in Lightroom From your Dropbox app. Go to the ADD PHOTOS icon in your Lightroom app and choose FROM FILES.  You should be able to set up your Dropbox app to appear into your Locations section from here. Once that is available, choose Dropbox under the Locations Section. Then select your DNG files and select OPEN. 

This may take a minute or two to load into your app, but once they've loaded you should see the photos available in your Lightroom App in the folder you have chosen to import to. 

Step 3: Create and Save your new Presets. Go into the album containing your newly imported DNG files. Open the first photo, tap on the 3 dots icon at the top right of the screen and then tap on Create Preset. This will take you to the screen that says New Preset. 

Give your Preset the name (Malibu, Sunset or Rodeo Drive) or (Chai, Golden or Stormy) and then choose which group you want to save it into. This comes in handy when you have multiple different presets and you want to keep them organized. The boxes will automatically be checked for the settings that you will want to transfer. 

Once this is completed, click the check mark in the upper right hand corner. (Repeat this process for each new preset you have downloaded). 

Step 4: Using the presets. To use your new presets just go back into your library and open any photo you wish to edit. 

Once you've got the photo open, find your PRESETS tab at the bottom of the screen and find the group folder you have saved it to. Then, click the preset you would like to apply, click the checkmark and make any adjustments as needed. 

Every photo is different, so some photos may need more adjustments and some may need none! It just depends on the lighting and where your photo was taken. 

 

Hope you guys enjoy!
