PRESET FAQ

JUST A LITTLE INFO BEFORE YOU BUY

I have already given you the run down on what a preset is on this page, but now I’m going to answer some questions you might have, as well as give you step-by-step instructions on how to actually use them.

What’s the difference between normal presets and mobile ones?

‘Normal’ standard presets are compatible with Adobe Lightroom Classic. (Which you have to pay for) Please double check your computer would be compatible to run it. Lightroom desktop requires a monthly subscriptions and only works on desktop, not mobile so the presets bought for desktop will not work on your phone. Mobile presets are compatible with Lightroom app available on iTunes for iPhones and Google Play for Andorid. It’s a FREE app and does not require a monthly subscription. After a short set up, you’ll be able to switch between filters just like in VSCO.

MY SKIN TONE LOOKS WEIRD/ REALLY ORANGE. WHAT DO I DO?

These presets were designed with my skin in mind, so if your skin tone is different, it could look a little weird.

If this happens, go to your oranges in the color section located on the right-hand side of Lightroom menubar. Here is where you will have to play around with your hue, saturation, and luminance until you find the color that is right for your skin. It just takes practice and patience.

HOW DO I IMPORT A PRESET INTO LIGHTROOM MOBILE?
