Custom Adobe Camera RAW Profile Support

Adding support for custom Adobe Camera RAW profiles made with Xrite profiling color checker passport is a feature I would be thrilled to use. I use it for every image put through my current RAW software and it really helps get the most consistent color accurate results from camera to camera, lens to lens, and photo shoot to photo shoot.

    Using Color Checker DNG camera profiles is for me a must for getting the most correct color in my color management.
    Camera Color Profile – Calibrated monitor – Paper profiles through Color Munky Photo.
    For me the easiest way to get correct prints.

    Precise Color Management and REAL control are something I’ve commented on elsewhere as well, but without a “Standard/Reference” point, many editing situations can be far more difficult to nearly impossible. The Budget Standard is the ColorChecker Passport and DNG profiles, and higher end solutions that are also available for advanced work, but SOME provision for custom profiles is a necessity for many many professionals or advanced enthusiasts. I’m certain this is not an easy implementation, but a necessary one for precision work. I did a job this weekend that would have literally been IMPOSSIBLE without custom profiles.

    Which brings up a VERY thorny issue, what about Soft Proofing and Printer Control ????

      Agree with Don. I print my own stuff for exhibitions and other and this is certainly high on my wish list. I would be most pleased with something more than the basic Color Checker, but if its not possible ( I can understand you have to make choices) a basic feature would be great.

    A must for me also. No better way to bring different cameras and lenses to a baseline.

    Agree, this is the first priority when color correcting is a custom camera profile for every camera and lighting scenario I have. Would make this a priority and add to ON1 Photo RAW asap!

    Agreed, the ability to implement custom camera profiles such as dng under various luminants is critical.

    Thank you for requesting this… I agree, this is a *must* have.

    I shoot many subjects that have very unique and complex colors, and the x-rite custom color profiles gives me the most accurate color I’ve seen. Even with different cameras from the same maker, the custom profiles make a huge difference in accuracy, and I’ve heard from a number of clients who appreciate that accuracy, because they spend a great deal of money in designing/selecting their colors, having software that gets it right as quickly and as easily as possible is essential.

    For me, in a raw processor, support for this is a deal breaker, because I need to *start* with correct colors, not screw around with adjusting colors to try to get it right.. and even WB tools don’t get you nearly as close to a custom profile that is based on how the camera actually sees a range of colors under the actual light source.

    Yes, this is a must and I agree with Don Hood above. Absolutely critical color management here with the Color Checker Passport and DNG files for all of my Canon Camera bodies. This should be one of the first things developed for photographers. This software is primarily for professionals and most professionals use some form of color management work flow using camera and printer profiles. Please make this support possible in 2018. Thank you.

    Hi, As this request was first posted on July 27, 2016 and seems many are wanting the option when or will this option be available please? I use camera profiles for three cameras in two differant senarios Sun and Shade. If this was implemented into On1 RAW 2018 it would also allow me and others I would think to say goodbye to Adobe software. Thankyou.

    This in addition to a couple of other things are all that stands in the way of me finally ripping the Adobe band-aid off for good. In so many ways O1R18 already crushes LR so I look forward to the time I can leave it in the rearview mirror.

    I agree with all of these comments. I use camera color profiles in 90% of my work, it saves a lot of time and the photo color is usually a lot better than reliance on my memory. Like Tim Norman said this is probably the one thing that will allow me to leave Adobe for good. I really like ON1 and what they are doing, let’s get this done so all the time I spend calibrating my monitor and printer will work seamlessly with a good camera color profile.

    The Pentax k-1 has great camera profiles and that is one of the things I miss working in OnOne is the lack of these profiles. K-1 landscape and OnOne Photo-Raw should be a match made in heaven. It doesn’t seem like it would be tough to add profiles. But what do I know, I’m no programmer. I’ve been counting on OnOne to allow me to leave Lightroom for good. You’ve made incredible strides over the years, wow us again by adding camera profiles.

    I’ll add my vote to this too. I create .dcp profiles for various cameras and to be able to apply these to batches of images at source is essential. I look forward to this being implemented.

    Well TWO years come next month and the only forward momentum seems to be a new option to come this month (June 2018) is going to be camera profiles that someone else has decided is the correct profile for your camera just the same as Adobe has on offer but with the option there of making your own profiles per camera, looks like I will have to keep Adobe products after all!!!!

    Does any one from On1 read these posts? Not even a response from their staff. 2 years worth of posts and not even a boo.

    This is an important request by many serious users – the ability to colour manage their workflow is critical. Otherwise On1 is just another plugin to make your pics look Instagram pretty!

    On1 you say you are listening, but you don’t appear to hear, going by all the comments above and how long they have been there… Come on On1 it’s a basic thing to get the colours correct as best that can be done, and that needs profiles done by calibration software…………….

    On1 Please add support for custom camera profiles such as X-Rite. I guess this is hard to do otherwise a client focused business such as you are would have done it by now. However this capability is essential to attract professional photographers who will in turn attract amateurs and untimely pay back your investment in the product.

    Two ways to roll, either On1 goes the route of providing custom camera profiles for all camera bodies (as is done in Capture One Pro, DxO PhotoLab, -etc) or , go the route of letting customers provide their own DCP files to get the color handling they want/need. Even Luminar lets customers import DCP files. This is long overdue in Photo Raw.

    I use X-Rite Passport Color checker, and I have been asking for the ability to create/use its profiles since ON1 RAW 2017. I am using 2019 now, and still asking for this.

    Well, here’s what I’m doing. I’m still using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. While I did purchase on1’s suite when it came out, I’ve given up (at least for now) on it for several reasons (in no particular order) 1) I know and understand Adobe’s software and can use it easily and effectively 2) Adobe supports custom camera profiles 3) and I’m not about to spend money for both Adobe and on1 products that practically do the same things.

    Camera profiles are essential for me as well.
    I would suggest to have the capability to manage imported Camera profiles having .dcp extention (same as ACR/Lightroom) to ensure the the utilisation of the same profile in several applications.

    This for me is a bit of a show stopper. I am really surprised that it has not yet been implemented. I use it, as above, for colour checker passport and also for Infrared profiles made through the DNG profiler.

    I agree with all the above, still waiting to move over from adobe, this is the only reason I cant, why no response from ON1 ?

    Well – custom DCP is a must. In my case Phone camera (using alot after top camera-phones hited the market) without proper DCP is just instagram-like JPG-black box. I can use it in LR (obviously) some other RAW converters but still not in ON1. I would like to switch to ON1 finally and completely but this is one of the things that still holds me back.

    AMEN! As a 50-year pro this is a critical piece.
    ON1 needs the capability to utilize color profiling which is a must for consistent color workflow.

    Current profiles are not too important to me as I always seem to leave them on the default setting. Camera profiles would be a great way to jump start the workflow process. I use a Pentax K-70 by the way.
