importing presets into Lightroom mobile cc USING DESKTOP CC

Step 1 copy.jpg

To import .xmp files into the Lightroom CC mobile app, yous need to have the Lightroom CC desktop app installed on your desktop calculator or laptop. You need to import the presets into the desktop Lightroom CC first, and then they will sync to your mobile app via the Adobe creative deject.


Lightroom CC

is a different desktop application than Lightroom Classic CC
, Adobe explains the difference at the bottom of the web page here. Yous can also watch this video that details the differences, too.

— Make sure yous are logged into your Adobe creative cloud subscription via the Adobe Artistic Cloud application on your computer, and make certain your calculator is connected to the internet. Open the Lightroom CC desktop awarding on your computer.

— Go to File -> Import Profiles & Presets

— Select the folder on your computer with the preset binder inside of it. Click the ‘Import’ button.

Step 2-2 copy.jpg

— Alternatively, y’all can also click on ‘Presets’ in the lower right hand corner to bring up the preset console.

—Click the three dots in the upper right of the preset panel, and select ‘Import Presets’. Follow the same step in the previous slide.

Step 3 copy.jpg

— Ideally, the presets will exist imported in their native preset folder. HOWEVER, Lightroom CC has been very buggy for me and sometimes refuses to import the original folder, and just pulls out the presets and puts them in the ‘User Preset’ folder, every bit seen above.

—If you’re organized like myself and like to go on your preset sets in their respective tidy appropriately-named folders, you’ll need to make a folder with the post-obit steps and motion the presets into it.

— Correct click on 1 of the presets yous just imported in the User Presets folder.

— Select ‘Move To Group’, then ‘New Grouping’

Step 5 copy.jpg

— Requite the preset folder the aforementioned name every bit the downloaded preset folder.

— Click ‘ Create’

Step 6 copy.jpg

— As of January 2019, the Lightroom CC desktop app doesn’t allow you to select multiple presets at once, then you demand to move them ane at a time (annoying, I know. Hopefully this is something they address in a future update).

— Right click on the preset, select ‘Motility to Grouping’, and select the group yous just created.

— Repeat with all the appropriate presets.

— Exit the Lightroom CC desktop application.

Step 7.jpg

— Open up the Lightroom CC mobile app on your mobile device.

— Brand sure you are logged into your Adobe Artistic Deject subscription account on the mobile app. If you are not logged into the same account yous used your desktop Lightroom CC app under, the presets will not sync. It has to be the aforementioned account.

— Navigate to the ‘Presets’ icon in the bottom right of the tool bar, tap on information technology.

Step 8.jpg

— It will bear witness you lot the preset folders yous accept installed. They should be the same ones you have installed on your desktop Lightroom CC application.

Step 9.jpg
