How To Import Desktop Presets into Lightroom CC

We will start with Lightroom CC (on the go editing!). Lightroom CC is the newer editing version for tablets, phones, and desktop. Which is easily confused with Lightroom Classic CC, because of the name change. But Lightroom CC looks like this (below) and it’s a simpler version of the Classic Desktop version. First make sure your version is correct Lightroom CC 1.4 or later, and Lightroom Mobile 3.3.0 or later. To see the version go to Lightroom CC Help then Updates and this will take you to your Creative Cloud Console.
