How to Sync Lightroom Presets

Sync presets between mobile and desktop

a. Open up the Lightroom CC desktop app.

b. Once the app is on, LR will automatically sync the presets. At this point, as long as your Lightroom CC mobile app is synced to your Creative Cloud account, the presets you use in Lightroom should show up in the app.

Follow the steps below in case the sync did not happen automatically.

a. Click on File and then Import Profiles and Presets.

This will open your folders where you need to find the Settings folder.

For Windows users, you can paste the following line in, replacing username with your username, to get there: C:\Users\**user name**\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\Settings

For Mac users, you can use the keyboard shortcut Command + Shift + G to open the ‘Go to folder’ dialog, then paste this string in to get there: ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings

b. Now open the LR mobile app

Note that this step might be a bit tricky but most of the users get it done without any trouble.

You need to make sure you are logged into your Creative Cloud account (the same CC account as your Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC desktop apps).

c. Once you are in, you can navigate to a photo and click the ‘Presets’ icon to find your synced presets. Your presets will show up below the section that features Curves, Grain etc.
