1. Download the free „Lightroom“ app in your app store.
2. Sign up to create an Adobe Account.
It’s super fast and absolutely free.
3. Download the presets.
Please make sure you have already installed Adobe Lightroom mobile app before you open any of the files
After your order you will automatically receive a confirmation email with your downloads. The subject of the email is “Your order at ParkerArrow is ready for download”. Make sure to check your spam folder if you can not find it in your inbox.
Open the email. Click on the link “Download Your Order Here”.
Your order page pops up. Tab on the download link below each product.
Download from Dropbox:
After clicking on your download link, Dropbox opens. Click on “Or continue to website” (the Dropbox App is not necessary!).
Now you can access your product. Open the mobile folder.
The “_Mobile” folder includes the mobile presets (DNG files). Even though the pictures look strange, you can download the files to your phone. Click on one of the photos and click on the three dots in the top right corner afterwards.
A menu pops up. Click on “Direct download”.
a) You might not be able to download several preset files at once, as your phone might create a “zip file” which it cannot open. In this case, download each preset one after the other.
b) If you are using Safari and the download doesn’t work, make sure you are actually in the Safari App (by clicking on the compass at the bottom right corner) and not only in your email-App. Click on the compass at the bottom right corner and retry to download the preset.
c) If you are using Chrome, you have to confirm your download. Just click on “Download” at the bottom.
Each product has an individual link and an individual folder. Repeat this step with all the presets. You can now find the files in your photo album / camera roll or you can import the files to your Lightroom App directly.
NOTE: Don’t worry if you only see white or black images or if your phone says “Unsupported file type.” You can still download the presets and import them into the Lightroom app 🙂
4. Create your preset folder.
Open the Lightroom app on your smartphone and create a new album using the + icon. We named our album „Mobile Presets“. Now click on the „Add images“ icon on the right side at the bottom. Select and import all DNG preset images. You should now see the thumbnails in your Lightroom album.
5. Save the presets.
Open the first preset in your folder and click on the tree dots on the right top side. Choose „Create Preset“ and type in the name of the preset. If you cannot find the option “Create Preset”, make sure that you are in the “Edit” menu which you can choose in the top left corner. Check all the boxes and click the checkbox on the right top side to save the preset. Repeat this step with all the presets in this folder.
Congratulations – you’re done!
Let’s edit some dope images 🙂
6. Let’s edit some pictures!
Import some pictures from your camera roll into Lightroom. Open an image and click on the „Presets“ icon in the toolbar. Choose „User Presets“ in the drop down menu in the top left corner. Now you can apply all of your different presets with only one click. How cool is that:)
Further adjustments (optional):
If you’d like to make some tweaks to your preset selection, you can simply adjust the photo settings in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen.
For example, by selecting “Light,” you can adjust the exposure, contrast and highlights, shadows and other common photo settings to make any final adjustments.
The Color Mix sliders (select “Color”) allow you to refine the hue, saturation, and luminance of specific colors. Just tap on a color dot to select the color you want to adjust, such as orange and red for skin tone adjustments. One of the original colors is too desaturated? No problem, just tap on the color dot and play around with saturation and luminance.
