Hey guys Denny here. Like most people, you’ve seen the Lightroom profile browser. But what’s the difference between Lightroom profiles and presets? Are they Lightroom presets repackaged in a new look?

I’ve created hundreds of presets over the past 5 years. When Adobe announced profiles, I switched over immediately and started experimenting.

A lot of times when you’re taking pictures, your camera cannot capture the full dynamic range leaving you with flaws such as overexposed skies. With HDR photography, you can fix this by taking multiple photos (some darker and some lighter) and then merge them together in Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop’s HDR Merge tools.
