That’s it! Enjoy your photo editing. 🙂

Done.

Troubleshooting:

I am getting empty / black / grey images instead of pictures.

This is TOTALLY FINE. The installation DNG files should look like black / grey squares or a grid of images in your Camera Roll. Please DO NOT try to open them on your phone – they will not open. Simply continue the installation.

I am not getting separate photos, only a grid of 9 images.

You are doing it right. You are not supposed to download separate images. Simply continue the installation with the DNG files downloaded.

I have tried everything and I cannot download from DropBox / Google Drive to my phone.

That’s fine, do not worry. You can either:

  • download files to your computer > email them to yourself > download from your email
  • ask us to email you the files > download from your email

When I try to download I can only see ‘Open in… VSCO App’.

You do not need to use ‘Open in…’ option. You need to download the file to your mobile phone. Then open Adobe Lightroom App > Upload it there > Continue with the next steps.

I have uploaded the file to Lightroom App but the presets did not appear.

For your Lightroom mobile presets to appear you need to complete Step 3. ‘Create Preset’ (see above).

I have installed my Lightroom mobile presets as per instructions but when I apply it to my photo, nothing changes / The preset does not work

This might happen if you accidentally downloaded file as an image (JPG) not as an installation file (DNG).

Remove all previous downloads from you phone and Lightroom App > Re-download files as an installation DNG file.

Happy editing!
