In this lesson, we're going to go over the colour profiles in lightroom classic CC. Now this is only available in the 2018 versions of lightroom classic or newer. This was something that before you could edit down below with some calibration and color effects down at the very bottom of your tools. But now it's right up here so you'll see first that there's this profile and then there's a drop down with a few different presets. So the standard is adobe color and this is basically just choosing the standard colors that are basically coming straight out of your camera. If you change these, these are sort of preset color modes that adobe has that they think you might like. So you have vivid which makes everything a little bit more saturated in contrast. E standard is sort of like a neutral, just plain colors. Portrait and landscape will try to enhance colors for both portraits or landscape. And then we also have this button right here. This sort of like four boxes and if we click that, tha...
t opens up the profile browser and if you open that, you'll probably see something like this. And here we have all of our different preset color profiles. So at the top we have the adobe raw presets, which we just saw and then next we have camera matching. So these will depend on the camera that you're using. Each camera has a number of color profiles a lot of times they are similar to what the adobe raw ones are such as landscape, portrait neutral, monochrome. And so if your camera is a modern camera lightroom can tell from the metadata from the photos what camera was being used and they'll actually import or not important but they'll have the preset sort of color styles if you want to change and use one of those profiles and you don't have to do this in camera. You also have some legacy sort of preset styles that were from the previous versions of Lightroom. And then you have these new artistic black and white modern and vintage ones and these are the ones I would definitely check out. You have some more creative ones that can really make your colors a little bit more interesting. Like for example Artistic six looks really cool. Now to apply them all you have to do is click on the profile here and then when you do that you see a slider up at the top with an amount, you can drag it to the left, decrease the amount of it color added or color editing it does and then drag it to the right to actually duplicate sort of that effect or increase it. So the standard is at 100 as always if we just double click in the slider, it will reset it to what it was before. Now if you're happy with this, all you would have to do is click close and you'll now see that we do still have this amount slider up here. If you want to get rid of that or go back to the original, just click the drop down and choose adobe color. The other thing just to note is that you can favorite these. So for example, say you're always using Artistic Six, just click the add to favorites star button and the top right. That's going to make it appear in this favorites folder which you can actually edit by a Nstar Ng and selecting the ones you want to include in your favorites. And then if we close this, we have under the dropdown menu right here we have Artistic Six which is now one of our favorites and you can quickly get to from this drop down menu. Cool. So these are some additional editing tools that you have in the newer versions of Lightroom, but they're really cool and a great way to start automatically editing your colors and basically as you can see here, if I scroll down, it's not actually adjusting the color effects that you're applying in the development tab. It's just basically reading the colors and showing you the colors based off of a profile. I know it's a little confusing but it's basically happening before we add any of these other effects down here, let me know if you have any other questions and we'll see you in another tutorial
