I'm just starting a new discussion thread for those that have used the 3rd profiles for a while. Just curious to see if you have compared the 3rd party versions to the new Adobe ones in v. 11 of LR Classic. I'm going to test them out this evening and see, but I'm hoping I'm happy with them and will move forward with Adobe's. I'll have to like them a lot to go back and edit a year's work of pictures done with the Color Fidelity ones I was using though.

Hello Woodbutcher,
I thought of the same thing, having to go back and reapply the new Adode provided profiles. Then again, I thought, why bother and maybe use the Adobe profiles going forward.

I have to say, for those us not well versed in the creation of camera profiles (or not at all versed), the Color Fidelity profiles were a life saver.

I plan on trying the new ones this coming week.

Kind regards,
Dimitri

I'm not going back to re-edit. I decided that the CF profiles did a great job in the interim. If have to go back to review a file I'll just make the change at that time. I use Auto these days as starting point and I think it does a better job using Adobe profiles. I import using the default Adobe Color and after Auto I choose a profile. Sometimes I stay with Adobe.

I've only played with photos back through September. So far, I think CF was lighter in the shadows, but I like the Adobe. I've modified my import preset to use the new profiles. Overall I'm not going to go back and edit a year's worth of images though. So going forward with the Adobe profiles.
