HIFI BLVCK LIGHTROOM PRESET TUTORIAL
First and foremost, thank you for purchasing the HIFI BLVCK Lightroom Mobile Preset. Upon your purchase you will receive a DNG file photo containing the settings used for the preset. Simply save the DNG file to your phone.
1. How to Import DNG files into Lightroom Mobile
Open the Lightroom app and create a new album to contain just your preset DNG files. To create the new album, tap the + to the right of the “Albums” section title. Then tap “Album” when it appears at the bottom.
Tap the plus sign to add a new album.
Once you have the Lightroom presets album created, tap the three dots to the right of the album name. Select “Add Photos”, and then select where your photos are saved.
If you used iZip, you’ll select “From Files”. If you brought the files in individually, though, you’ll select “From Camera Roll”.
After pressing the three dots on the new album, tap here to add photos.
Select the location of the DNG files.
Next, select the DNG photo files to add and tap “Add”.
2. How to Save Presets
You have the DNG file loaded into the Lightroom app, so let’s go ahead and save it to Lightroom ! Open up the photo from your folder of DNGs.
Go into the album you created and select the DNG file to open.
With the DNG photo open, tap the three dots in the top right corner. When the options appear, select “Create Preset”.
Once open, you can easily save the settings of the DNG file as a new preset!
A list of options and checkboxes will appear. These let you select which settings you want to include in the presets. This screen is also where you name the preset and can create a separate folder for it.
If you purchase presets from multiple sources, I recommend having a folder for each source.
When you have selected everything you want, tap the checkmark to save the new Lightroom presets. Next, repeat this process with each DNG file in the folder!
Here you name, organize, and select settings for your new preset.
3. How to Use Your Lightroom Mobile Preset
Now that you have the presets saved in the Lightroom app, it’s very easy to use them. Open a photo that you want to edit.
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the sections with settings you can adjust. Scroll to the far right to reach the “Presets” section.
The presets section at the bottom of the app screen houses all your saved Lightroom presets.
Tap into the Presets section, select the folder with the preset you want to use. Then tap the preset you’d like to apply. Lightroom even creates mini thumbnails showing a preview of that preset applied!
When the preset is selected and you want to keep it, tap the checkmark to finalize.
And that's it! Enjoy your new preset!
