Camera RAW 10.3

 

Camera Profiles in Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera Raw are now known as 'Profiles' and as well as a name change, they've also had quite a few feature updates. 

In Lightroom Classic CC, Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera Raw, Profiles are now accessed via the Basic panel and those who use Lightroom CC will also be able to access profiles from the top of the edit panel. Plus, Camera Matching profiles, which were previously available in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic, are now available in Lightroom CC. 

Under the new 'Profile' heading, users will find six brand-new Adobe Raw profiles ( Adobe Colour, Adobe Monochrome, Adobe Portrait, Adobe Landscape, Adobe Neutral and Adobe Vivid), over 40 new Creative profiles and an all-new Profile Browser that lets you quickly compare and select the best profile for your photo. 

Adobe has also started working with a number of preset creators so they can create their own unique profiles users can access. 

Within Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom, a profile is used to render your photograph, converting it from raw camera information into the colours and tones that we see. For non-raw photographs (like JPEGs and TIFFs), a profile isn’t needed to render the photo, as all of the rendering was done already (either in another raw processor or within the camera itself). However, profiles can be used for creative purposes to change the look and feel of the photo.

Camera Matching Profiles were one of the most powerful raw tools found in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic CC, but also one of the most difficult to find but now, they’re easier to find and available for the first time in Lightroom CC. There are also four new creative profiles available (Vintage, Modern, Black & White and Artistic) that can be applied to both raw and non-raw images. Creative Profiles also provide a new Amount slider so you can increase or decrease a specific effect. 

 

Six Brand New Adobe Raw Profiles

 

In addition to the new profiles, the Dehaze tool can now be accessed via the Basic Panel in Lightroom Classic CC, the tone curve panel size has expanded for more precise adjustments and the ace-tagging algorithms have been optimised. 

Lightroom CC for Macintosh and Windows has added support for network attached storage (NAS) devices as well as a new filter option, enabling you to filter by sync status and the following updates have been applied to the Lightroom CC App:

The profile comparison and amount slider features sound like a easy prelude to a square crop and direct upload to Instagram. Can all this be done from a phone?
