Did you know that you can now sync your Lightroom CC Lightroom Presets with your Lightroom Mobile? It's easy, and you can do it using the Lightroom CC desktop app. But does that mean for you, exactly? It means you can use the same presets from the desktop app in your mobile app.
If you aren't already taking advantage of this nifty opportunity, here's how in four easy steps:
1. Open Lightroom CC Desktop App:
Launch the Lightroom CC app so that it can automatically sync your Lightroom Presets and Profiles from Lightroom Classic.
Make certain that your Lightroom Mobile app is synced to your Creative Cloud account. You will then be able to see your Lightroom Classic Lightroom Presets in the app.
If it doesn't sync, or you want to add new presets, follow these next steps.
2. Import Profiles and Presets:
Click: File > Import Profiles and Presets
You will need to click on File > Import Profiles and Presets to open your folders to search for the Settings folder.
MAC users will need to use the shortcut Command + Shift + G to open the ‘Go to folder’ dialog, then paste this string in to get to the Settings folder: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings
Windows users can paste the following string to get there: C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings
3. Open Lightroom Mobile App:
At this point, some users might find difficulty with the sync. Make certain that you are logged into your Creative Cloud account. If you have multiple accounts, make certain you are logged into the same CC account as your Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC desktop apps.
Once signed in, you navigate to an image. Then click the ‘Presets’ icon to find your synced presets. Your presets will appear below the section that features Curves, Grain, Sharpening, and Vignetting.
4. Managing Mobile Presets:
Up to this point, steps 1 to 3 were all you needed to be able to use your mobile Lightroom Presets. You can also import preset files directly into the Lightroom CC desktop app and sync them to Lightroom Mobile without ever using Lightroom Classic. But, you'd still need the Creative Cloud and the Lightroom CC desktop/mobile apps.
To keep items organized, you'll need to manage your presets by clicking the three dots icon and clicking: Manage Presets.
Next, you’ll see blue checkboxes next to all preset folders allowing you to turn off and hide any folders. If you'd like to delete a folder, right-click on it, and it will be deleted from both the Lightroom CC desktop and Lightroom mobile apps.
Congratulations! Now you know how to sync Lightroom Presets from Lightroom CC desktop to Lightroom Mobile and can start using them!
