Just started playing with Canon's Picture Style Editor which allows me to create and save custom Camera Profiles like the Netral, Faithful, Standard, etc that are both in the camera and in Lightroom. If I create a keeper, how do I import it into Lightroom 6.14? Canon saves these in .pf3 format. I could not find an appropriate appdata folder in either LR or Camera Raw though expect thee need to be placed somewhere in there.

Appreciate the direction. A search did not turn up much.

I don't think you can Bob. They talk different languages. Adobe's version is the DNG Profile Editor.

Thanks Victoria. I'm a little surprised the camera profiles are DNG in LR. They are the standard Canon picture styles at least by name (neutral, faithful, landscape, etc) so I would think dedicated to the raw image and not a DNG. But perhaps I am missing something? Would be nice to create and add custom profiles there. But, not something I can't live without :)

DNG camera profiles apply to DNG and RAW.

Thanks. So I can make a DNG profile using X-Rite Color Checker software, but I cannot customize it. The Canon let's me tailor a profile in numerous ways. Is there a way to do that with DNG profiles?

If interested, here is info on Canon's Picture Style Editor:

Thanks!
