Me: Any clue why my newly built Lightroom preset - that has color grading selected when created - doesn’t actually apply color grading to images when selected? My color grading only presets work just fine, but not ISO adaptive ones. Adobe, fix this please.
From AdobeCare: Hi Dave, thanks for the heads up. Has this preset ever worked since you created it? Would you mind reviewing the process of creating an ISO adaptive preset in Lightroom Classic and see if that helps? See: helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-clas… Thanks, ^AK
Me: Thanks - this is a new one, so never worked. I have several other ISO adaptive presets (made before Color Grading) and they all still work fine (but with no color grading). I was finally getting around to making one with Color Grading included. I do have Color Grading only presets that work (not adaptive). Reviewing now
Me: Reviewed, that’s exactly what I did. Images from ISO 320/800/1600/3200/6400, checked that the only difference between them was the sharpening and noise settings otherwise all other settings (used in the preset selection) were identical.
From AdobeCare: Hi Dave, it would really help if you can share your feedback on our community: feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_fami… Since this issue might need a review from our product developers, share the preset file with your post so that our engineers can look into it. Thanks, ^AK
Here is a screen shot of building the preset. You can see the title, that Color Grading is selected, and what Color Grading is set (and all of the images in the adaptive preset selection had the same Color Grading.
MacOS 11.2 (2.4GHz 8-core i9, 64GB Ram, Radeon 5600M 8GB, 2TB SSD) Full Creative Cloud running Adobe PS Lightroom Classic 10.1.1 with Camera Raw 13.1. I thought I had noticed this a month or two ago, before upgrading to OS11.2, but I was distracted with other projects so I ignored testing it at the time.
Greetings, Updates to Camera Raw, Lightroom Classic and the Lightroom Ecosystem products for Desktop, Mobile and Web, were released today and contain a fix for this issue. Please refresh your Creative Cloud application and install your update when it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.
