The profile editor and the camera profiles (just Canon and Nikon models at this time) can be located here:
thank you for your fast reply. -I have happily downloaded the DNG Profile Editor and the profiles that came with it. Since Micheal wrote "The first Adobe matrix profiles *were* very accurate...", I thought he was talking about older profiles, which were stored in the gems, not the current ones. The much better so.
Kind regards - Hening.
My interpretation of what Michael wrote is that he was indeed referencing the profiles included with ACR and these are the older profiles that will be replaced when you start using the newer ones, now beta.
Thank you, Ramón.
I have now found out that these profiles appear in the Base Profile drop down menu in the DNG Profile Editor. E.g. for the Nikon D 200, "ACR 4.4" and "ACR 3.3" are listed, in addition to the new beta 1's.
They must be stored inside ACR or somewhere - the Mac Finder "Find" command does not retrieve them.
Kind regards - Hening.
On a Vista PC you will find them (over 400) under C:/ProgramData/Adobe/CameraRaw/CameraProfiles.
Using the DNG Profile Editor you can pick any of them as a starting point for creating a new profile. For example you can make Canon 40D profile based on a Nikon D300 profile.
Install locations for the new profiles are documented here:
(Older profiles such as ACR 4.4, ACR 3.3, etc. are indeed built-into Camera Raw / Lightroom so you won't find those at the above locations.)
>the Mac Finder "Find" command does not retrieve them.
The Mac's search engine, Spotlight (which I like to call Spotblight) is a useless piece of crap. Use the excellent and free EasyFind, which you can find and download at:
On my system, I have permanently disabled Spotblight and the Dashboard.
Thank you all! -
Ramón, you are a bit harsh on good old Find :-) (which I prefer over Spotlight). I have EasyFind installed, I'm just not accustomed to use it, it's so seldom I need to. And for the ACR 4.4 and 3.3 profiles, it does not find these either, which is of course natural since they are stored inside applications, as Eric has confirmed.
Anyway, now I know where everything is! - Kind regards - Hening.
>old Find (which I prefer over Spotlight).
The Find function in the Finder is Spotblight. Spotblight is the search engine for the Find Commander in the Finder (Command F). (Ausgesprochene Scheiße.) It misses many, many files, such as Color Sync profiles, System files, etc.
Oh I see. Always happy to learn more about my Mac :-) - Kind regards - Hening.
Hello Eric Chan, I have Vista Home Premium and I don't find the Camera Profiles file to transfer created camera profiles to. My C:/path is unlike that described in DNG_Profiles_FAQ. I have explored two paths:
(Note, I don't have a "ProgramData" on my C drive, rather I have- C:/ProgramFiles(86x)/Adobe/CommonFiles/Camera Raw 4/AMT . And, also, C:/ProgramFiles/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 . Yikes! I'm lost! Thanks for any help! Rick
Eric Chan, I figured out the problem I was having; finding the camera profiles folder. The Program Data files were actually hidden folders within Windows Vista Premium Home Edition. I went into the control panel and clicked "show hidden folders". Eureka, they magically appeared! Rick
Hi Rick, glad you found the answer. Yes the app data folder is (by default) hidden on Vista so you have to take manual steps to find it.
Hi Eric, I stumbled on this through google etc. I think it's going to be very useful but on the Mac, even after trying to show hidden files, there's nothing on my camera profiles folder. All there is is an index.dat and .DS_Store... How can I find the D700 profile to use for the 5D?
thanks so much
Ayo, profiles are camera-specific. Hence, Adobe does not provide a "D700 profile to use for the 5D".
To answer the question, however, you are probably looking in your "user" folder:
The folder to which Adobe installs the default profiles is the "shared" one here:
Now, if you want to use the DNG PE to build a profile for your 5D that resembles a D700 profiles, see this tutorial:
