Hi friends,

I’m Aleen Karakashian. Wife, mother of two. Family, Mother and Child photographer based outside of Atlanta, GA.

Finding solutions to my daily problems as a photographer made me search and dig into one specific issue recently; {My degree is in Graphic Design, so naturally, I enjoy some design/creative apps} I spend more time on my phone now as I nurse my baby…I want to post my pictures as I sit down and be still, but also keep up with my editing style/presets I use on my computer.

This tutorial helps you move all your presets from your phone to your computer.

I’ve been creating my own presets lately, and I’m going to teach you how to move your Lightroom preset from Computer to Phone. If you need help understanding how to create your own preset, let us know! We might make a tutorial on that.

Follow the steps below or watch the video.

On your computer:

  1. Open Lightroom 
  2. Choose your image 
  3. Click on the preset you want 
  4. Go to File-Export-File Setting-Choose DNG from the drop down menu 

Now save that file and move it to your phone. I personally use Google Drive, I saved that DNG photo on google drive (on my computer) and opened it again from my Google Drive App on my phone.

On your phone:

  1. Download the photo and import to Lightroom Mobile App 
  2. Click on the three dots on the top right of the screen on Lightroom Mobile App 
  3. Click “Create Preset” and rename

You will now find that preset under “User Presets”.


I hope this helps you. You can manage your presets there. (ie; turn off presets you don’t use anymore rather than deleting them for good.)

Let us know if this was helpful!

Atlanta Family, Child & Motherhood Photographer

I’ve been married for 7 years now. My husband and I love calling Atlanta “Home” along with our two kids.

I remember owning my own pink plastic Barbie camera when I was a little girl – I believe that’s where my passion for photography started. I grew up with great love for the creative field, and had my BA in Graphic Design. I didn’t expect to be a professional photographer when i was younger, but I knew I would land in the creative field. 

I love motherhood, and i love coffee! (It seems like these two go hand in hand.)
