Episode Summary

I posted some of my Lightroom presets for the camera profiles that you find in the Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom. After I started reading through the questions and comments I realized that a lot of people didn't know one of the huge benefits of using presets for the camera profiles. See, the presets I gave out, were simply just shortcuts to the settings in the Calibration panel, rather than my own recipe of settings put together (which is what the presets I usually give away are). So I figured I'd do a quick video to show you a couple of ways that having presets for these profiles helps out. I hope this helps. Enjoy!

    But when you apply a preset during import, is it then possible to remove it again if it didn’t work on that pic?

    Otherwise I would prefer to apply the presets after import.

    Guus,This is Camera standard DEVELOP sitetng. I.e. How a raw is shown on your display. Not the restricted JPG colour space (AdobeRGB or sRGB). That’s something else.To find this develop sitetng, go to the develop module (press D ), then open the last pane in the right panel. Select Camer standard instead of Adobe standard, and see. Mostly, this is a very good sitetng.I’ll write about sRGB versus AdobeRGB in the next few days. Good idea, thanks!
