How to Download and Install the Presets

A) Desktop Installation


1. SIGN UP TO CREATE AN ADOBE ACCOUNT

You can find Lightroom here. Please note, that Lightroom for desktop includes a monthly subscription (the mobile App is free of cost).

 

2. DOWNLOAD THE PRESETS

After your order you will automatically receive a confirmation email and a download mail. The subject of the email is “Your downloads are ready | Wedding Rebels”. Make sure to check your spam folder if you can not find it in your inbox. Open the email. Click on the download links to open the download pages of the individual products. The download of the zipped files is starting when you click on "Download Now".

Please note: Once you receive your presets via email it’s a good idea to back them up on an external hard drive. This way you have the presets stored safely forever.

 

3. INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW .XMP FILE FORMAT (LIGHTROOM 7.3 UPDATE)

The Lightroom 7.3 Update in 2018 introduced a significant change in the way Lightroom works with presets. The old .Irtemplate files have been exchanged with the newer .xmp format. As indicated on our website, we can only offer the new .xmp file format.

The .xmp format has been used solely by Camera Raw before, while Lightroom used the .Irtemplate format. This means that Camera Raw and Lightroom work with the same .xmp format now. Your old Presets have been automatically converted into .xmp once you updated to Lightroom Classic 7.3

 B) Mobile Installation

1. DOWNLOAD THE FREE „LIGHTROOM“ APP IN YOUR APP STORE

You can find Lightroom for Android here / for iOs here.

 

2. DOWNLOAD THE PRESETS

Please note: You either need a laptop or an app to unzip the mobile preset files. The download link contains a so called Zip-File. Any laptop can download and open them easily but some smartphones can not open these files. If you do not have access to a laptop, please let us know via email and we will send you the unzipped files via email within 48 hours.

After your order you will automatically receive a confirmation email with your downloads. The subject of the email is “Your downloads are ready | Wedding Rebels”. Make sure to check your spam folder if you can not find it in your inbox. Open the email. Download the file to a laptop or computer and open the folder to see the presets.

 

3. TRANSFER THE PRESETS TO YOUR SMARTPHONE

In the download folder of your laptop you will find your preset files including so called DNG files. You need to transfer these DNG files to your phone. We prefer Air Drop to transfer the files as it is super fast. Nevertheless you can also use Dropbox, iDrive or even send them to your phone as an email attachment. You can now find the files in your album/camera roll. Don’t worry if you only see white or black images. Your phone is not able to show the DNG files in a correct way but Lightroom is.

 

4. SIGN UP TO CREATE AN ADOBE ACCOUNT

It’s super fast and absolutely free.

 

5. CREATE A PRESET FOLDER & SAVE PRESETS

Open the Lightroom app on your smartphone and create a new album using the + icon. We named our album „Mobile Presets“. Now click on the „Add images“ icon on the right side at the bottom. Select and import all DNG preset images. You should now see the thumbnails in your Lightroom album.

Open the first preset in your folder and click on the three dots on the right top side. Choose „Create Preset“ and type in the name of the preset. You can also create a new preset group (folder) or put all the presets into "User Presets". Check all the boxes and click the checkbox on the right top side to save the preset. Repeat this step with all the presets in this folder.

 

6. LET’S EDIT SOME PICTURES

Import some pictures from your camera roll into Lightroom. Open an image and click on the „Presets“  icon in the toolbar. Choose „User Presets“ or the new group which you created in the drop down menu. Now you can apply all of your different presets with only one click. Quick and easy editing on the go!
