Once all the photos in the collection have been uploaded to your Creative Cloud, you are ready to switch over to Lightroom Mobile and use your presets!

How to use Lightroom Mobile Presets:

So each picture in the collection has been edited with the preset it is titled. This means those preset settings are embedded into the pictures themselves.

This can be done like so:

Launch Lightroom Mobile on your device.
