Lightroom Presets

Presets – Camera Profile Presets

First off, a big thanks to all of the readers/visitors who were at Photoshop World last week and came up and introduced themselves. I had a great time there and it was so cool to get to meet some of the people that visit/post here. Now, on to the presets…

A couple weeks ago, I posted a video on the beta Camera Profiles that Adobe has released over at the Adobe Labs website. At the end of the video I mentioned creating Develop presets for those profiles you like the most, so I decided to do just that for myself. Then I figured I might as well share them this week so you don’t have to do the work. The really neat part about using presets for these profiles is that you don’t have to select them in the Camera Calibration tab to see what they look like. Instead, just hover over the preset name in the Presets panel and the Navigator will show you a preview so you can quickly see what each looks like. I’ve created presets for all of the Nikon and Canon profiles (separate downloads below). The one prerequisite is that you’ll need to have the camera profiles installed in order to use them so make sure you go back and watch the video to see how.

READ THIS FIRST: These presets only work if you’ve installed the profiles first. They are not the profiles themselves, but presets to apply the profiles. Also, since the profiles only work with Raw or DNG files, the same holds true with the presets.
