In the past, a few of you have requested that we have a meeting where we cover some more advanced topics. I've conceived of this month's meeting specially to punish you. After I subject you to the technical nuances of building custom profiles, you'll never ask for advanced topics again! Only the most unashamedly geeky among you need attend!
I'm trying reverse psychology here, I really do want you to attend. You'll have awesome Lightroom street cred if you know how to do this stuff.* We'll cover building two types of custom profiles.
First, camera profiles. Lightroom uses camera profiles so that it knows how to interpret the raw data from your camera. By default, Lightroom uses a profile called "Adobe Standard". It's plenty good. But what if you're a perfectionist with too much time on your hands? You can make your own custom camera profile specifically for your individual camera!
Second, lens profiles. Lens profiles allow Lightroom to correct optical flaws in lenses. Lots of lens profiles come preinstalled with Lightroom. But what if you have a lens that isn't covered by Lightroom's lens profiles? Well, it might be that someone else out there has already made a profile for your weird lens, and you can download it. But what if no one else has made a profile already, or the profiles made by others are unsatisfactory? You can make your own!
We'll cover how to make both of these types of custom profiles, and we'll discuss how to use them most effectively in Lightroom.
As usual, we'll have pizza and socializing from 6:30 to 7:00. The presentation will start at 7:00 and go until about 8:00. We'll have time for questions from 8:00 to 8:30. And as usual, this presentation will assume that you have a certain level of Lightroom knowledge. If you are completely new to Lightroom, you wish to watch my "Intro to Lightroom" presentation here: https://seminars.adobeconnect.com/_a227210/p8jckoamiq8/?launcher=false&fcsContent=true&pbMode=normal
Lastly, please note, we will be meeting at 410 Townsend, NOT 601 Townsend. Hope to see you all there!
*Is there such thing as Lightroom street cred? I sure hope so.
