MOBILE GUIDE

UNZIP YOUR FILES

Just as with Desktop version, you will need to unzip the files to access your presets. The mobile files will be .DNG files. You have two options to do this.
1. Click the file link you received in the email. Upon downloading, click the zipped file for it to open. You can also use apps like iZip to unzip the file on your phone.
2. Unzip the files on a desktop as seen above and either email the .DNG files to yourself or if you have a free DropBox account you can drag and drop them in into your files and wait for it to sync onto your phone.
Note: In either case you will need to open the "Mobile" folder and save the .DNG files with the "Save Image" selection onto your phone.
IMPORTING THE PRESETS
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.
1.Open the Lightroom app and create a new album. Name the album "The Escape Artists Presets".
2.Then open the new album, tap on the three dots in the upper right corner and then tap on "Add Photos" and select "From Camera Roll".
3. Select and import the blank .DNG files.
CREATE AND SAVE THE PRESETS
1. Go into the album containing your newly imported DNG files and open the first file.
2. Now tap on the three dots icon at the top right of the screen and then tap on "Create Preset".
3. Next you will see the New Preset screen which contains all the options you can use to customize your preset. Give your preset a name (we recommend the preset names provided).
4. Create a new Preset Group (the default is "User Presets"). Title this Preset Group "The Escape Artists Presets".
5. The checkboxes shown 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. Check all boxes except for Tools, Optics and Geometry as these parameters vary from picture to picture.
6. When you’re done with the settings save your preset by tapping on the checkmark icon at the top right corner.
7. Repeat this step for each .DNG file you downloaded as you will need to save each preset separately. Don’t worry though, you only need to do this once!
USING YOUR MOBILE PRESETS
1. To use your new presets, just go back into your library and open any photo you’d like to edit.
2. Find the Presets icon in the menu at the bottom of the screen and tap on it. Make sure the Preset Group that’s selected is the one where you saved your new presets.
3. 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.

2. Unzipping files on a PC requires you to right click on the folder and choose "Extract All" from the menu.
