  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

Some favorites of the presets are shown in a different grey, why?

These are partially compatible presets, meaning they apply a profile and your currently selected image is not compatible with that profile. The preset may apply a raw profile, for example, and you have selected a non-raw image. Or the preset applies a camera-specific profile, and the selected image is from another camera. Previously those presets would not show at all, but that caused a lot of confusion. So now they do show, but marked as not compatible.

But if you don't want to see them, there's a Preference setting (Presets tab) to toggle the display of them off or on.

That means the part of these partially compatible profiles being compatible will be applied anyway? So if a preset contains a lens correction for a special camera / lens and the image is done with another one this part of the preset will / can not be applied but color, tone and such or the whole rest of the preset will be?

No no, that is much better now than it was before.
