Download the Db Preset

Life is better when you’re lazy

The Db Preset is simple to install and even easier to use. Watch the video and you’ll see what we mean. And BTW, It's just as easy on Android.

iPhone Download (iOS 13)


Make sure you have the latest iOS 13 installed.
If you’re using an older version of iOS you might need to download the file on your desktop and transfer it by email or Airdrop to your phone.


Download presets from the confirmation email or from the provided link.


Depending on what email app and default browser is on your phone, this step might look a little different. Here’s a few tips.

If you get a white screen asking where you want to “open” the file, click the little Safari icon at the bottom right of your screen to open Safari, then select download to Files.

The browser should open and the download option should appear at the bottom.


Press the Download Button to access the zip. It will now open in Files. On Safari this is at the top right. On Chrome this is at the bottom.


Click the '.zip' file and the extracted 'Db Presets - The Essential Collection' folder will appear.


Enter the 'Db Essential Collection (LR CC Mobile - DNG)' folder.


Mark all 5 images and save them to your camera roll.


In your camera roll they will appear as white images. Now, let’s move on to 'iPhone/Android Installation'.

Android Download


Download presets from the confirmation email.


To unzip the file you need Files by Google, download it from Google Play Store.

A note about Lightroom versions

Due to the rebranding that Adobe has gone through to promote their Cloud-based services, what was once referred to as Lightroom CC and Lightroom CC Mobile, are now both officially named Lightroom. Just Lightroom.

Lightroom is entirely cloud-based, with the desktop and mobile versions acting as slightly different interfaces (optimized for touch screens).

So, for those who still rely on local storage (always with an off-site backup!), they have renamed the old-fashioned Lightroom into Lightroom Classic CC.
