As some of you might have noticed, there are a number of presets available on Lightroom mobile that are different from the default presets available in the Lightroom desktop app. This is because some of the presets for Lightroom mobile were redesigned to be optimized for images originating on mobile devices. Click this link – Lightroom mobile presets, if you would like to download, unzip and install these presets in the Lightroom desktop app.

To install: download and unzip the “Lightroom mobile” file and place the subfolders (01 CREATIVE, 02 COLOR etc.), in the following location:

• Mac (user)/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets

• Win (user)/Application Data/Adobe/Lightroom/Develop Presets

If you are on a Mac, the Library menu may be hidden depending on your operating system. To reveal it, hold the Option key down while selecting the “Go” menu in the Finder.

Note: you can also access this folder from within Lightroom by choosing Preferences > Presets. Under Location, click Show Lightroom Presets Folder.

Be sure to drag the subfolders (not the parent folder) into the Develop Presets as Lightroom can’t see presets in nested folders.

If you are interested in installing only the presets that are different (to avoid duplication) you can download and install these UniqueLRmobilePresets instead.

    Thanks for posting these. Today, lightroom has “Punch” and the new mobile presets have “Punch 1”, “Punch 2”, and “Punch 3”. I noticed that the UniqueLRmobilePresets has just 1 and 3. Does this mean that “Punch” in Lightroom maps to Punch 2?

    For Vignette, there are 2 in Lightroom. 1 and 2. In the mobile presets there are 3. I assume this means that there is no overlap between mobile and Desktop too?
