  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Are you using the cloud-based Lightroom apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Apple TV and Web? Then you'll love my new book, Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro!

    You'll learn how to use the Lightroom cloud ecosystem to organize, edit and share your photos. You'll also come to understand the thought processes used by professional photographers when they're editing their own photos, so you can transform your photos quickly and easily. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

Missing profile on mobile

I've been searching for a solution to this problem but have only found solutions for people who want to sync their mobile LR profiles to their desktop applications. I have the problem in reverse: I have custom profiles made for my desktop LR CC and when I view the images in my LR mobile app I get the "Missing Profile" warning.

12661


I use custom profiles in Lightroom, made using a X-Rite ColorChecker board. I use these profiles for all my photos and have different profiles to use for images made under different lighting conditions.

Okay, I understand there may be complications syncing profiles between desktop and mobile versions of Lightroom. But I work 99% in desktop Lightroom and only occasionally want to view my images or share them with a client in mobile. And this means that *every single time* I swipe to a new image in mobile I need to dismiss this warning? Am I getting this right? I'm trying to use all that Adobe is offering me, I'm trying to love the new Lightroom ecosystem. But this seems like a problem they should have anticipated.

Is there something I'm missing here? Something easy to do to make my custom profiles available in LR mobile? Or for God's sake some way I don't have to manually dismiss the warning about this for every friggin image I view in mobile?

Oh my gosh, it was something so simple. I'd actually read that in all the searching I did on this but I always get confused about what the different program names refer to. CC means *the other one*, right. Thanks.

Don't worry Jeff, even Adobe staff get confused with the naming. Here's the instructions you need: How do I sync my Lightroom Classic profiles & presets to the Lightroom CC mobile apps?
Does this solution also apply if I’ve never created a profile in Lightroom Classic? I just started getting this message today in Lightroom Mobile, same message OP is getting, when trying to edit photos I previously edited on the app though I got no missing profile message. Why am I getting it now even though I’ve never created a profile?

Bought any presets? They often come with profiles.
