FAQ ABOUT MY 4 FOOD PHOTOGRAPHY LIGHTROOM CC PRESETS FOR MOBILE
WHAT ARE LIGHTROOM CC PRESETS FOR MOBILE?
Lightroom CC presets for mobile are similar to filters (as seen on instagram), only better. They save editing adjustments so that you can easily re-apply the same settings to your images on your phone again and again. This gives you the opportunity to create a branded, signature and cohesive photography look. They need to be used on the Lightroom CC app, available for free on your mobile phone (or on desktop too as part of your paid for Adobe Creative Cloud subscription).
