April Lightroom and Adobe Camera Raw Releases: New Profiles and More – Info UI
With this release, we’re adding six brand new Adobe Raw profiles, complementing the tried-and-true Adobe Standard. Adobe Raw profiles have existed for as long as Adobe has made raw rendering software (the first version being the plug-in version of Adobe Camera Raw in 2003). In ACR and Lightroom Classic, Adobe Standard was the lone Adobe Raw profile available, and within Lightroom CC (including the iOS, Android, ChromeOS, and Web versions), Adobe Standard was there and used, but you couldn’t change it. Now, we’re introducing six brand new Adobe Raw profiles, and providing access to them within ACR, Lightroom Classic, and Lightroom CC (including on the iOS, Android, and ChromeOS versions).
All of the Adobe Raw profiles, from Adobe Standard to the six new profiles, were created with the intention of providing a unified look and feel, regardless of which camera was used. This can be incredibly helpful when upgrading from one camera to another (you won’t have to spend a ton of time figuring out how make your new photos match your personal style) or if you’re using multiple cameras for the same shoot, you won’t have to worry about some photos looking totally different from the others.
Adobe Standard was designed to be a great starting point for your photos that would enable you to get the most of out them while editing, however it was also created nearly ten years ago. Over that time, we’ve learned a lot about what photographers want and have gotten great feedback on how we can make an even better starting point. From all of this feedback, a new default was born: Adobe Color.
Adobe Color was designed to greatly improve the look and rendering of warm tones, improving the transitions between certain color ranges, and slightly increasing the starting contrast of your photos. Since Adobe Color is the new default (but only for newly imported photos), it was designed to work on the widest range of photos and ensures that regardless of the subject, your photo will look great.
Adobe Monochrome has been carefully tuned to be a great starting point for any black and white photograph, resulting in better tonal separation and contrast than photos that started off in Adobe Standard and were converted into black and white.
Adobe Portrait is optimized for all skin tones, providing more control and better reproduction of skin tones. With less contrast and saturation applied to skin tones throughout the photo, you get more control and precision for critical portraiture.
Adobe Landscape, as the name implies, was designed for landscape photos, with more vibrant skies and foliage tones.
Adobe Neutral provides a starting point with a very low amount of contrast, useful for photos where you want the most control or that have very difficult tonal ranges.
Adobe Vivid provides a punchy, saturated starting point.
More accessible Camera Matching Profiles
Camera Matching Profiles were one of the most powerful raw tools found in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic CC, but also one of the most difficult to find. Now, they’re easier to find and available for the first time in Lightroom CC. We created the Camera Matching profiles to match the different options often found in your camera, making it possible for you to match the color and tonality of your raw file with what you saw on the your camera’s LCD or the JPEG rendered by your camera, as closely as possible. The options available for any particular photograph will vary, depending on which camera the photo was captured with.
