Hi, gang – two quick things from Adobe today (and 1-thing from me):
How to give Adobe your Lightroom feedback directly
You guys know I love and appreciate it when you comment here in the comments section (I read every single comment, even if I don’t have an opportunity to answer everyone back – I still read them all). But when your comments are directed toward Adobe, the engineers and product management folks might not always see them if you only post them here, so you’re better off going directly to the Lightroom team. Here’s how:
First, if you run into any issue with your copy of Lightroom, first check here to see if there is a workaround, or you can also post any issues here:
You’ll see a Lightroom category there, and the Lightroom team at Adobe monitors that page, so start there.
If you’d like to submit a crash report so Adobe can track the problem and diagnose, go to this link:
This page is for both Lightroom and Photoshop crash reports.
I want your comments to be heard by the right people at Adobe, and at those links above, you are literally going straight to the source.
How to Create Your Own Lightroom Creative Profiles
Lightroom 7.3 introduced the awesome new Creative Profiles feature and Adobe’s Josh Haftel did a post on Adobe’s Blog (along with a tutorial video) on how to create your own custom profiles (you actually use Photoshop’s Camera Raw to create the profiles for Lightroom. Whodathunkit?).
Here’s a link to Josh’s post, and his tutorial video is on that page.
This opens up a whole new world! (thanks, Josh!)
NOTE: In the video above, Josh mentions that there are a number of programs that create LUTs out there. One of the most popular commercial apps is 3D LUT Creator. I’m putting their demo video below, and here’s a link to download the free demo from them. Also, there’s a free app called LUT Generator you might want to check out here.

Hope you find any (some, part, etc.) of that helpful. 🙂
