And it’s also available on the web if you go to darkroom.co/presets, making sure that finding new presets is accessible inside and outside of Darkroom.

Community Preset Discovery builds upon the previously released Preset Sharing feature, which allows everybody to create and share their custom presets using simple sharable web links. Now, we've put all those shared presets right at your fingertips.

To help discover, we created several dynamic preset collections to help you find a look that best fits your shots.

  • Top Exported: Discover the popular presets that photographers worldwide are frequently applying and exporting.
  • Fresh Arrivals: Be the first to access shared creative community presets. It's been exciting to see all of the amazing new presets being shared.
  • Most Installed: Explore the presets that have been installed and tried the most. Many of us don't always share or export our photos, so it's interesting to see the differences compared to the Top Exported category.

We've also have two hand-curated collections of presets:

  • Analog Film Favorites: Quickly access the best vintage look with these carefully crafted presets that replicate the look of analog film.
  • Independent Favorites: Discover unique and distinctive styles that will make your shots stand out.

Create and share your custom presets

In Darkroom you can craft your unique look, by making adjustments in any tool, and with the help of creating a preset in the preset tool have your look ready to apply consistently in a snap. You can even share your presets with your friends and the world, by simply sharing your custom presets with anyone quickly and easily using a simple web link.

Select the preset you want to share, tap on it again (•••) to view its options and you’ll find the “Share” button. From the share sheet, you’ll be able to share a web link to anyone, whether they have Darkroom installed or not.
