How to Install Lightroom Mobile Presets: 2020 Update

Hi Friends! Have I mentioned that it’s hard to share photo software tutorials because apps, phones and computer software is changing! (wahhhh! first world problems)

As of March 2020, there has been a minor change to installing presets into the free lightroom mobile app. Images may vary depending on the phone, software and settings.

Remember, if you are an Adobe Creative Cloud subscriber, you can simply install the .xmp file on your desktop computer via Lightroom Classic. This desktop version of Lightroom and your mobile Lightroom App will sync together through the cloud! Photos, presets, and all. It’s genius.
