The Adobe Lightroom Update: PROFILES!

So here's a quick comparison of the new profiles within Adobe Lightroom. As of the update today, Adobe has redone their camera profiles and put them at the forefront of the editing process rather than one of the last things a photographer thinks about.

In this post I'm going to be comparing the different profiles and how they make the image appear. All profiles are chosen by choice during the editing process to help a photographer reach the style they're looking for. There is no right or wrong way to edit an image!

These comparisons are just changing the profile on a completely RAW image imported directly into Lightroom. If you slide the slider to the right, you will view the Legacy (Old) profile. If you slide to the left, you will view the New Profile.

Here I'm going to compare Adobe Standard and Adobe Color to the DVLOP profiles that have been created for use with the DVLOP Presets.

Using Lightroom Presets on Mobile

While most people would say that it's impossible to put any of your Lightroom presets into the Lightroom mobile app, I have to say that it is quite contrary for Android users. As an Android user myself, I found a way to unpack the Android APK for Lightroom, and repack it with the inclusion of standard .lrtemplate presets that many purchase from other photographers. Prior to this most people used a sample photo sync to their computer, with a specific preset applied, then copying and pasting it over to another photo on their mobile device. This set up completely takes away the copy and paste part of the equation and builds Lightroom presets directly into the app. To see how it is done, please watch my video below...

If you are uncomfortable following the steps above, or would like me to build the Lightroom app for you with the presets built-in, I would be happy to do so for a small fee of $10. Please reach out to me via email ([email protected]) and we can begin the process!
