The Adobe Lightroom Update: PROFILES!

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.
