What are Lightroom presets?

It’s no longer news what a preset is all about.

For beginners, photo editors who don’t have a lot of time, or designers who want to create a consistent visual style for imagery, a preset can be a great alternative to editing everything manually.

A preset is a free (or paid) add-on that comes with pre-determined settings for some of the different features in Lightroom. A preset has all the settings ready to create a certain type of visual with just one click. They can save photographers, editors, and designers a lot of time while helping maintain a consistent visual style.

Method #1: Using the DNG Presets file

The presets you can use with Lightroom come in multiple file types, and (.dng) is one of them. Here are the steps for adding and using the (.dng) presets on your iPhone.

Firstly, you have to know the directory or folder where you saved the presets, and this depends on where you downloaded the presets from. For example, you downloaded from the Chrome browser, and it’s been saved to the download folder.


Step 1:

Go to the folder in which you have your presets; it can be in your documents, preset folder, downloads, or any folder in your file.

Then, on the list of apps, select the Lightroom app.

Step 4:

The file will be imported, and you will be asked to launch the app or just ignore it. If you choose to continue editing with the preset or you want to apply it to your pictures immediately, click on Launch Lightroom Now. You can ignore it by clicking Get It to edit it later.
Editing later or immediately: launch your Lightroom app and locate the preset you just imported. Click on it to open it.
