How To Import Lightroom Presets (Desktop and Mobile App)

Not sure how to get started with the new presets you just bought? Not to worry! I will walk you through how to install Lightroom presets for desktop, as well as the mobile presets without the need of a computer. If you haven't already, please check out my presets/photo editing filters from the link below:

Step 1: Download the preset After purchasing the presets, you will receive the download link right on the web page or you can also download them from your email. Click on the download button.

Step 2: Unzip the files Your download will be on the bottom left (for iPhone users). Click on the down arrow at the bottom left corner, then you will be directed to 'My Files' where you can simply click on the presets zip file to unzip.

After unzipping the zip folder, a blue folder will pop up with the same presets collection name.

Click on the blue folder and you will see 2 subfolders: Desktop and Mobile

Click on the folder Mobile folder -> Select all of the pictures in this folder, then click on the arrow button at the bottom left (circled in green) -> Select the Lightroom program (assuming you have already installed the app)

Step 3: Installing the presets in Lightroom Mobile You will now see all of the pictures imported into your Lightroom. Click on one of the pictures and then select the 3 dots on the top right corner

Click on 'Create Preset' then name the preset -> Repeat the same step with the rest of the pictures.

After saving all of the presets, you can simply open your picture, select the 'Presets' tab and choose any of the presets for your picture.


1. From the menu bar, choose File > Import Profiles & Presets.

2. In the Import dialog that appears, browse to the required path and select profiles or presets that you want to import -> Click Import. Please keep in mind that each of the picture is different, hence small adjustments such as Exposure is highly recommended. That could be easily done in the 'Light' section in Lightroom. Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions and I hope you find this tutorial helpful! Lots of love, Annie Pham @anniepwanderlust
