INSTALLING AND USING MOBILE PRESETS

Video Tutorials

I  have some helpful video tutorials saved on my Instagram. I’ll link to those below. I know sometimes it helps to be able to see someone else walk through the process, and that’s exactly what I did here. It’s kind of like you are looking over my shoulder while I install and edit. Super casual and extremely helpful!

 

Written Instructions (Using a Laptop)
  • Using your desktop or laptop, open the zipped file folder from your download link.  You will see several DNG files inside.
  • DO NOT click on the DNG files to open them. They need to stay in the DNG format to work.
  • Send the DNG images that were in the zipped file folder to your mobile device.  I suggest AirDrop or Dropbox.
  • Once transferred they will appear in the camera roll of your mobile phone.
  • They will look like blank squares…this is perfect!
Once you have transferred the .DNG files to your phone (via AirDrop or Dropbox) you can add them to the Lightroom Mobile App by following the next steps:
  • Open the Lightroom mobile app.
  • Click the + plus sign in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
  • This will take you to your camera roll.
  • Click the 3 little dots in the upper right corner.
  • Choose “select”
  • Now, click on each one of the .DNG files.
  • Click add photos at the bottom of your screen. **Please note** the .DNG files may show up as blank images as shown above.  Be on the lookout for those blank squares in your camera roll. 

 

Once they are added to your Lightroom Mobile App, they will look like the image below.  You will see my logo and the name of the preset. They will still be in .DNG format.

How to Create Your Preset:
  • Open the image preset you would like to create. For instance, JBC Warm.
  • Click the three white dots in the upper right-hand corner and select create preset.
  • From here, name the preset and create a preset group named “JBC Portrait Presets” or “JBC Interior Presets”.
  • Repeat this process for all of the presets.

Editing Your Images:
  • Open the image you would like to edit.
  • Select presets from the bottom toolbar.
  • Select the preset you would like to apply.
  • Click the check mark to apply it.
  • Please note: You will want to adjust the exposure after applying the preset in order to achieve your perfect edit.
Congratulations! you have successfully applied a JBC preset.  Be sure to use the hashtag #JBCPRESETS for a chance to be featured!

HOW TO INSTALL YOUR JBC DESKTOP PRESETS

CLICK THE TUTORIAL BELOW TO OPEN THE DIRECTIONS

Lightroom CC

1. Save your presets folder labeled JBC Desktop Presets on your desktop. 

2. Open lightroom CC.  Click on the edit button on the right side of the page on the top of the menu. It will look like three horizontal lines with a circle on each line.

3. On the bottom, you’ll see the tab for Presets. Click that.

4. Once the preset tab is open, click on the three dots to the right of the words presets. Select “Import Presets”.

5.  It will allow you to choose from the folders on your desktop. Select the entire Folder labeled JBC Desktop Presets and click on Import.

6. Your Presets will appear under the presets tab.  If they are not there, restart Lightroom CC and they will show up. 

Lightroom CLASSIC CC WITH .XMP FILES

Make sure the folder containing your .xmp presets is saved in a location where you can easily find it.  I suggest unzipping it and saving it on your Desktop.  You will want to copy this folder so that you can paste it into the settings folder later.  Read the step by step directions below to walk through the process.

1. Open Lightroom Classic.  In the upper left hand corner, click on Lightroom and then click on Preferences. 

2.  A new screen will pop up.  Look for the Presets tab.

3.  Click on the white box (towards the middle of the screen) titled Show Lightroom Develop Presets. 

4.  Locate the Settings folder and double click to open it.  Paste the entire unzipped folder containing your .xmp files (the one you unzipped and copied earlier) into this folder.

5. That’s it!  So easy and fun.  If the presets do not show up automatically, go ahead and close Lightroom.  Once you re-start it, the presets will appear.

Lightroom CLASSIC CC WITH .lrtemplate FILES

Make sure the folder containing your .lrtemplate presets is saved in a location where you can easily find it.  I suggest unzipping it and saving it on your Desktop.  You will want to copy and paste the folder and its contents in the last step, so make sure to make a note of where you saved it.  Read the step by step directions below to walk through the process.

1. Open Lightroom Classic.  In the upper left hand corner, click on Lightroom and then click on Preferences. 

2.  A new screen will pop up.  Look for the Presets tab.

3.  Click on the white box towards the middle of the screen titled Show All Other Lightroom Presets.

4.  Double click on Lightroom.

5.  Double click on Develop Presets Folder.

6.  Copy the JBC Presets Folder (the one you unzipped earlier) and paste the entire folder into the “Develop Presets” folder.

7. That’s it!  So easy and fun.  If the presets do not show up automatically in Lightroom, go ahead and close out of Lightroom.  Once you re-start it, the presets will appear.
