Profiles are Changing My Workflow
Anytime Adobe creates an update to their programs I am always excited and nervous at the same time. I love innovation, and I believe Adobe keeps on innovating, and that is the exciting part. The nervous part is two-fold… is it going to be stable and will it change my bulletproof workflow?
Of those two, my main concern is my workflow. Man, I love my workflow, but just when I think I have it down, I learn something new or something new hits the streets. The latest updates to ACR and Lightroom dropped a bomb on my workflow!
It didn’t disrupt it in a bad way, it just tweaked some things and changed my mentality on what a “solid foundation” for my images is. Let’s go back to September of 2017, it doesn’t seem that long ago, right? Well in October Adobe put Luminosity Masking in the Local Adjustment tools and brought us a KILLER upgrade to the auto button. In April of 2018, they changed the way profiles interact with our images. In less than seven months ACR and Lightroom have received massive updates that are extremely valuable.
So let’s dive a little deeper into these profiles. In today’s tutorial, I want to give you some insight on the profiles in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom. At this point, I have had just about a month to experiment with them, and I am very pleased to say that these new profiles are amazing. So amazing, that I made a whole profile pack for them that gives you 40 awesome genre-specific presets and teaches you how to make your own!
