Adobe recently updated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic and in so doing they solved a long running common frustration. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic can now recognize the picture styles, or image processing parameters, that you chose in-camera and it can automatically apply the matching camera profile by default.
The feature that I am talking about in this video is called the Picture Controls setting on Nikon cameras. The equivalent on Canon brand cameras is called the Picture Styles setting. This feature goes by the name Picture Profile for Sony cameras and it is called the Film Simulation mode for Fuji users. No matter what your camera calls this type of feature though, these parameters change the look of the images that you see on the back of the camera while you are out shooting.
Until now, Lightroom Classic has always applied their own Adobe Color Profile to every raw image no matter what settings you activated in-camera. No matter you chose in the field, especially if you had set your camera to give you black and white raw images, everything up till now has always been converted to Adobe Color by default.
With the latest update though, you can now tell Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic to automatically select the closet match that it has to the profile that you had selected in-camera. In addition, you can now establish your own raw processing defaults for each camera that you use.
In the grand scheme of things, setting new raw develop defaults is probably a small improvement but every bit of efficiency helps especially when you are working with thousands and thousands of raw files each year!
