Curious how to create presets in Lightroom Mobile? Check out the how-to video below.

Editing your images on mobile doesn’t have to be hard, learn how to create your own presets for Lightroom Mobile to easily edit images and create consistency in your images.

When I’m editing images on my phone, I’m always using Lightroom because it is what I’m use to using on desktop. Unfortunately, Lightroom isn’t always the easiest to navigate and can be intimidating to newcomers. So today we are going to talk all about creating custom presets (styles/looks) and saving them so you can quickly and easily edit your images.

P.S. If you don’t want to read the whole tutorial, there is a video how-to at the end of the blog post.

For this tutorial, I am using my Google Pixel so what you see and what I see may very slightly if you are using a different platform such as an iPhone. However, it should all generally be the same and help you get started

1) Open App & Load New Photo

First thing first, open up the app and either load a new image or take a photo from within the app. Normally, I load up an image I’ve already taken. You can do this by clicking the “+” icon in the lower right hand corner.

Select the image you want to add and click ‘add photo’. All done!

2) Edit Your Images

Next, it is time to edit your images using Lightroom Mobile! Use the tools at the bottom of the app to make your adjustments. There are a ton of settings to choose from in Lightroom from exposure, to highlights, shadows, white balance and even a healing tool. For a more in-depth how-to tutorial, check out the video below!

3) Save the Preset

Now, your images is perfectly edited and you are ready to save these exact editing settings to be used again.

Click the ‘presets’ icon.

Click the three vertical dots next to ‘User Presets’.

Click ‘Create Preset’.

Finally, name your preset and click on the check-mark in the upper right hand corner to save your preset.

Voila! All done!
