If you've purchased the CGHI mobile Lightroom preset bundle(s) - THANK YOU! Truly. I'm so excited for you to start using them so you can enjoy the ease of one-touch editing. If you haven't, what are you waiting for?! ;)
In all seriousness, after you complete your purchase in our SHOP you will instantly receive a link on the confirmation page to download the presets you purchased. The download is a .zip file because each bundle comes with multiple presets so the file is large. After you download the file you will need to unzip it. Once you unzip the file, there is a PDF with step-by-step instructions on how to install the presets in the Lighroom mobile app.
I usually prefer written instructions vs. video tutorials, but I'm old school like that and know a lot of people aren't. With that in mind, I also created two separate video tutorials for those that prefer to see the process in action.
OPTION 1 (PREFERRED): INSTALL YOUR CGHI MOBILE LIGHTROOM PRESETS FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICE
OPTION 2: INSTALL YOUR CGHI MOBILE LIGHTROOM PRESETS FROM YOUR COMPUTER
Q: Are your presets an app?
A: No. My presets are downloadable files that you need to install into the Adobe Lightroom CC app. Don’t worry, instructions are included!
Q: What is a Lightroom preset?
A: Photo settings that are saved in advance and applied to future photos for quicker editing! Once you install the preset and save it one time, you can use it over and over on any of your photos by simply selecting the preset you want and saving the image. I enjoy the editing process, but I enjoy saving time even more!
Q: What happens if my instant download link doesn’t work or I clicked away from it and can’t get back to it?
A: After you complete your purchase, an account is automatically created on our website where your purchases are saved. CLICK HERE to login and then go to the “Files” tab where you will see the link(s) to the presets you purchased. Click the link to download the .zip file and unzip it (see instructions above) to access the downloadable presets.
NOTE: If you clicked a link from Instagram and your download is jumbled, open a separate browser of off Instagram and follow the steps above to download the files.
Q: What if I don’t know my username and password?
A: If this is your first purchase from our site, you will receive a separate email immediately after you complete your purchase with your login credentials. If you don’t see it, be sure to check your SPAM/JUNK folder. If you still don’t see it, go to the USER LOGIN page and select “Request New Password”. Enter the email address you used at checkout and a new password will be sent to you.
Q: Do you have any before and after photos so I can “preview” the presets?
A: Yes! There are thumbnails with side-by-side examples of each preset you get in their respective bundle:
- CLICK HERE to view the Interiors Bundle examples
- CLICK HERE to view the Fashion + Style Bundle examples
Q: Why do some presets seem to be extra dark/bright on my photos?
A: The way the preset works on your image depends on the original photo you take. The reason I decided to offer bundles rather than selling each preset individually is so phone camera users and digital camera users alike have a better chance of finding a preset they love! Phone camera’s tend to take darker originals that may require more brightening, and digital camera’s tend to take brighter originals that may require more contrast and deeper tones. With that in mind, I’ve created a range of presets that range from darker to bright.
FOR EXAMPLE: most of the photos I take come from my DSLR, so my three favorite presets in the Interiors bundle are Crisp, Natural and Vibrant. My favorite presets from the Fashion + Style bundle are Radiant and Dramatic, but when I’m using my iPhone I tend to use the brighter presets like Ultra Light + Bright II (interiors) and Charley II (fashion + style).
Q: Do you offer any other presets?
A: I do plan to add more presets in the future! In fact, I already have two new ones I’m testing and love so far.
Q: Can these be used on the desktop version of Lightroom?
A: These are currently only formatted for the Adobe Lightroom CC app. A desktop version is in the works and will be added to the existing bundles as an additional download option.
Q: Why aren’t your presets free?
A: A LOT of time went into figuring out how to export my settings so others can download them to their mobile apps, creating step-by-step instructions on how to install, creating videos on how to install, creating multiple presets so phone cameras and DSLR users have options alike, working with my web developer to add this to my site, testing, etc.- so you don’t have to. It took time to create this, and now that it’s created, I’m the customer support team. In order to offer the support, be able to create new presets and keep my website ad-free I decided to sell these for the time I put in as opposed to offering free downloads. On that note – I also support small businesses as much as possible and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support in mine!
Q: Can I get my money back if I don’t like the presets?
A: All sales are final, but the reason I decided to offer bundles rather than selling each preset individually is so the chances of you finding one that works for your photos is higher!
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for your outpouring of support and love on my presets! If you're on Instagram and use any of my presets, please use the hashtag #cghipresets so I can see your beautiful photos! It's always helpful if you put the name of the preset you used in your post so I can share them in my stories.
