Using Lightroom Profiles

The latest updates to Lightroom CC (1.3), Lightroom Classic CC (7.3), and Adobe Camera Raw (ACR, 10.3) add profiles, an updated way to define colors in your photos. Profiles are a lot like presets, but they work at a more fundamental level. You can assign a profile as a starting point and then build adjustments on top of the profile.

Over at CreativePro.com, I write about what profiles are and how to use them: Using Lightroom Profiles.

Profiles are also present in Lightroom CC for iPad and Android, which helps keep color consistent between devices.

The timing for this new feature means I haven’t yet incorporated profiles into my book Take Control of Lightroom CC, but it’s on the list for the next revision. In the meantime, learn the basics over at Creative Pro!
