Lightroom Tutorial: Use the Same Presets on Your Computer and Your Mobile Devices

Lightroom is a powerful photo editing software that can be used to create stunning images. One of the great things about Lightroom is that it is available for both computers and mobile devices. This means that you can edit your photos on the go and have them look the same on all of your devices.

One way to ensure that your photos look consistent across all of your devices is to use presets. Presets are saved sets of editing settings that can be applied to your photos with a single click. This can save you a lot of time and effort, especially if you edit a lot of photos.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to use the same presets on your computer and your mobile devices.

Step 1: Import your presets to Lightroom on your computer

The first step is to import your presets to Lightroom on your computer. To do this, open Lightroom on your computer and go to File > Import Preferences. In the Import Preferences dialog box, select the Import Profiles & Presets checkbox and click Import.

In the Import dialog box, navigate to the folder that contains your presets and select the presets that you want to import. Click Import.

Step 2: Sync your presets to the cloud

Once your presets are imported to Lightroom on your computer, you will need to sync them to the cloud. To do this, go to Edit > Catalog Settings in Lightroom on your computer. In the Catalog Settings dialog box, select the Sync tab. Make sure that the Sync Presets checkbox is selected and click Sync.

Step 3: Access your presets on your mobile device

Once your presets are synced to the cloud, you can access them on your mobile device. To do this, open Lightroom on your mobile device and make sure that you are logged in with the same Adobe ID that you use on your computer. Tap on the Presets icon and then tap on the User Presets group. Your imported presets will be listed in this group.


Now you know how to use the same presets on your computer and your mobile devices. This will help you to ensure that your photos look consistent across all of your devices.

Here are some additional tips:

  • Make sure that you are using the latest version of Lightroom on both your computer and your mobile device.
  • If you are having trouble syncing your presets, you can try restarting Lightroom on both devices.
  • If you are still having trouble, you can contact Adobe support for help.
