For the last 2 years I have been editing my photos with other peoples presets, as well as my own. So I finally decided to perfect mine & share them with you guys!
The Vibrant Chaos pack has 6 awesome presets to make literally any photo pop. I also created a couple neon presets for those awesome neon locations you stumble upon!

But wait….what even is a preset?
A preset is basically a super customizable filter that can be used in Lightroom. You don’t need the paid version of Lightroom to use them, the Lightroom CC app is free! A lot of photographers shoot in .RAW which just means that the colors & light in their images are not as compressed as a .JPEG file is. But, I know a lot of my homies out there are shooting in .JPEG & on their iPhones so I created these presets on .JPEG images just for you guys. This doesn’t mean they won’t work on a .RAW file, it may just need a bit more tweaking.
So to get you guys started I’m going to show you how to download, unzip & use my presets on the Lightroom CC mobile app!
Download the Lightroom CC mobile app & the unzip app.
After you have purchased the presets & receive them in your email, download the zipped file. It may take a second, so be patient. Then click the box with the arrow at the top right hand corner, a menu will pop up. Scroll over to copy to unzip & click that bad boy! This will copy the entire zipped file to the unzip app for unzipping.
Step 2 should take you right into the unzip app. from there, just click on the preset pack you bought & it will unzip the file. The zipped file will look something like this….
The unzipped file should appear above or below after it is completely done, looking something like this….
Click on the unzipped file & will show you a list of the presets, it will look like this….
Now comes the good stuff, but it’s also a bit time consuming. Click on the first preset, the actual image won’t show up, go to the box with the arrow at the top right hand corner, click it & scroll over to COPY to Lightroom CC. Make sure it is the icon that says COPY TO Lightroom CC.
The image should now be open & visible in Lightroom. Go to the top right hand corner & click the 3 dots. A menu should pop up, you want to click create preset. Basically this is going to copy all the settings from my preset into your Lightroom app & save them. You will be promted to name the preset, you can name it whatever you’d like! After you’re done hit the check mark at the top right hand corner & WA-LA you now have your first Chaos preset stored to Lightroom!
Unfortunately, you have to follow these steps for EVERY.SINGLE.PRESET. It’s definitely a bit of a pain but totally worth it in the end.
When you finally have all your presets uploaded to Lightroom & are ready to edit a photo just select your photo, go down to the menu at the bottom & scroll all the way to the end. You’ll see a label that says presets, click on that. All of your presets should be listed right there for you! Just choose the one you want to use, apply it, tweak it however you need to & save to your camera roll!
I hope I guided you through the process well! Drop me a comment, leave me some love!
