I'm organizing my camera profiles and would like to delete some of them.

I know of the C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles folder, but even when I move all the folders/profiles from here, when I start Lightroom, there are some profiles that I've created, but I don't know where they are stored, and can't find them searching my hard drive.

Suggestions?

Thanks,

Reid
 
On Windows 7, you need to look in Drive:\Users\User Name\App Data\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles
The location you have specified is for Windows XP
 
Thanks! I just figured it out as well.

Strange my Win7-64 basic edition dose not have the App Data in Username ?? is it a hidden file ?
 
I think there's a mix of information here.

In WinXP, camera profiles can be located at:

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\
That is where LR installation puts the profiles

Code:
C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\
That is where I would recommend installing custom profiles, so they never can get overwritten by an installation

I think (but I'm not 1''% sure because I don't run Win7) the according locations in Windows 7 are:

Code:
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\
Installation

Code:
C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\
User based.

I think the folder is hidden, so you have to enable 'show hidden files and folders'.

Just one amendment to Beat's list....on my Win7 systems the LR installation puts the Adobe-supplied camera profiles at:

c:\Users\All Users\Adobe\CameraRaw\CameraProfiles\Camera
 
Jim,

AFAIK, "C:\Users\All Users\" in Win7 is just a junction point (link) that points to the physical location "C:\ProgramData\". But again, I'm not a Win7 specialist, as I don't have it (yet) on my machines (something planned for XMas with my new PC).

You're absolutely right, Beat....you can browse to the files via either the ProgramData OR All Users route, but All Users is a shortcut to ProgramData. Not sure quite what the point of that is, other than to confuse me (and no doubt others as well)! :D

Jim,

The reason for this is to support legacy applications which have the path to these folders hardcoded. There should be actually two junction points pointing to "C:programData":

  • [li]"C:Documents and SettingsAll Users"[/li]
    [li]"C:UsersAll Users"
    (I think because "C:Documents and Settings" points to "C:Users")
    [/li]
The difference between a junction point (hard link) and a shortcut basically is that if you select a shortcut in explorer, you end up in the directory it's pointing to (see location bar in explorer). If you select a junction point in explorer, the location bar still shows your selected folder structure.

Thanks Beat....my learning for the day! :D
