    Angry Literoom Classic makes photos dull after loading

    What camera profiles have you set in the cameras?

    Assuming you are shooting in .raw, what you see on the LCD will be converted to whatever the conversion setting in the camera are, but these profiles are not applied to the RAW files as displayed in Lightroom.

    You can easily get around this by creating an import profile for Lightroom to apply such a camera profile or any other settings you like upon import.

    What you see initially, is the RAW embedded JPG file (each RAW file has this small, embedded JPG) that is pulled from the RAW - it is replaced with the "preview file" created by LR from the RAW using a basic profile which replaces the embedded JPG as a view file as the uploading continues...

    Hi Peter

    In the Desvelop module, the bottom-most tool panel is "Camera Calibration". There, you can select a profile (have a look to see which you like best).

    Alternatively, do some basic development on a photo. I use the standard profile but go for a Medium contrast tone curve, add a bit of clarity and vibrance and remove a bit of saturation.

    Then read this article to determine how to make and a pply a preset: https://photographylife.com/creating...develop-preset
