STEP 1: Download ZIP File

At the bottom of your order confirmation page, you’ll see a “Download:” link. Tap this link and your phone will open a new page.

STEP 2: Open ZIP File

Tap “Open in Files”. Now tap “On My Phone” and then select any folder that appears below, or tap “iCloud Drive”. It doesn’t matter which method you choose. Next tap “Add” at the top right of the screen. This will bring you to a new screen. Tap “preview content” towards the bottom.

STEP 3: Save Image Files

You will now see a screen that says “Nicole 1 Adobe raw image”. The top of the screen will say “1 of 6”. Tap the box with the arrow in it at the bottom left of the screen and then tap “save image”. Now swipe left and your screen will say “Nicole 2 Adobe raw image”. Tap the box with the arrow in it at the bottom left of the screen and then tap “save image”. Do these same steps with all 6 images.

*If the previous steps don’t work for your phone, then you will need to download the file to a computer first. Once you’ve downloaded the ZIP file, double-click to unzip it. That should create a folder of the same name with the DNG image files inside. Each DNG file is a preset that you now need to move to your phone. The easiest way to do this is by using AirDrop but you can use any other file transferring method such as iMessage, email, etc.

STEP 4: Import the files into the Lightroom app.

 At this point you should have all of your DNG files saved to your phone. If you go into your photo stream and see them as blank picture files, don’t be alarmed – that’s how they should look.

Open the Lightroom app and create a new album. We’ll name it Nicole Presets. Then open the new album, go to Add Photos and select all the DNG files from your camera roll and add them to the album.

STEP 5: Create and save your Presets. Go into the album containing your newly imported DNG files. Open the first file, tap on the 3 dots icon at the top right of the screen and then tap on Create Preset.

Next you will see the ‘new preset’ screen which contains all the options you can use to customize your preset. You can give your preset a name (Nicole 1, Nicole 2, etc.) and the option to choose a Preset Group to save it in. You can create a new preset group and name it Nicole Presets. This is a great way to keep them organized. The checkboxes determine which picture settings you’d like to save with this preset. Only the settings you choose here will be applied to the pictures you edit with this preset in the future.

Tools, Optics, and Geometry will all be unchecked. The presets do not have any info within those settings so you can leave those boxes unchecked.

When you’re done with the settings save your preset by tapping on the checkmark icon at the top right corner.

Repeat this step for each DNG file as you will need to save each preset separately. Don’t worry though, you only need to do this once!

STEP 6: Using the presets. To use your new presets just go back into your library and open any photo you’d like to edit.

Find the Presets icon in the menu at the bottom of the screen and tap on it. Make sure to select the preset group ‘Nicole Presets’.

Now you can edit the photo by tapping on a preset from the list and then tapping on the checkmark. You can still continue to edit the photo and make adjustments if you like, after you’ve applied the preset.
